Having an option to notify all buyers will never happen as it makes it far to easy to spam buyers with unsolicited emails.
I disagree. As a buyer I want to be notified of updates. Why not have a checkbox on the authors update page that says “notify buyers of this CRITICAL update” or something like that….
Yes I would as well but Envato will not implement it because there are far too many sellers that would abuse the feature and use it to send out advertisements of their other plugins to buyers.

Any why would authors abuse this feature for advertisment? Because envato doesn’t take any steps to help authors to promote their items enough. (eg. advanced search,...). But yes, I agree with you – even if authors gets enough promotion, there would be some who would still abuse it, but still would it be possible to have some special actions. Since updates are also getting reviewed, authors could check this “Notify Customers about this urgent update” checkbox and reviewers can double-check it…for example. :)

Envato WordPress Toolkit

Description

This toolkit plugin establishes an Envato Marketplace API connection to take advantage of the new `wp-list-themes` & `wp-download` methods created specifically for this plugin. These API methods grants access to information about your purchased themes and create temporary download URL’s for installing and upgrading those themes. Basically, users that have purchased themes from ThemeForest.net can now install and upgrade any theme that takes advantage of these new methods.

For end users, all that’s required to get started is an Envato Marketplace username & API key, and to have purchased one of the many WordPress themes found on ThemeForest.net.

That only works for Theme Forest themes, not Code Canyon plugins.

You must not have understood my suggestion because there was no way they could advertise other plugins. It would just notify buyers of an update to the one they bought. Also, if the author is abusing by sending out too many updates, it can be caught by the reviewer because it is being done on the update page…. everyone wins!! :)
