What do you mean,
"new search console?"
I briefly looked over the release information Niels posted for the 8.0 beta version:
Are you asking about the first bullet point?
- Connectors can now be downloaded and updated through our new Connector Manager. New Connectors will be released continously.
That particular feature is currently working. But I'm not sure what you mean by search console. There is however a search field within this connector manager that will find a connector you search for. You can literally type "ebay" as a search term and the ebay connector will filter into the view.
As they add more connectors, this console would update with any new additions. I could be wrong about that. Also, at the bottom of the connector manager is a link, I'll post it now, you can make connector suggestions or any feature you may want. This link takes you to a different different forum board. Not sure why it's separated
