Is there a way to get a list of record ids that were deleted since a certain date?
I can get all non-deleted records using this command:
/Act.Web.API/api/contacts?$skip=0&$top=500&$filter=(edited gt 2017-08-17T16:18:58Z)
But this does not tell me which records were deleted on the web since that date. Is there a way to get a list of the ids that have been deleted since a specified date?

Act! doesn't soft delete records, they are hard deleted; there's currently no way to query via API or otherwise for deleted records.
That being said, having a delete feed along with webhooks (events) is something that's targeted long term. In particular, to support synchronization use cases via API.

You can use the History List and select the Type | System Changes | Contact Changes | Contact Deleted.
You will then see your list of all Deleted Contacts as recorded automatically by the User Records (assuming the Histories haven't been deleted too!).

As far as I understand Act!, there is a text entry made in the tracking file for Act! Sync for all deleted records.
Would you consider exposing (read only) this tracking file both for the Framework API and also the REST API? Maybe a command that would let us upload the first xx bytes of the tracking; 1024 or 2048 or something like that.
Web hooks are also important. In particular, we need a hook for whenever data is changed in Act! (I.e. an entry is made to the internal tracking file). We get this from Google and it is really cool to see a PC sync system kick in whenever a change is made on a website.
