We're happy to announce that version 1 of the API is now live. We've been beta testing this version over the last month, and it's a major improvement in terms of both functionality and developer experience. Here's a list of the most significant changes we've made in this release.
overwriteparameter to help prevent accidentally overwriting data.
revparameter - All metadata objects include a
revparameter, which is intended to replace
revision. It is an opaque string type and can be passed to various calls to indicate a particular version of a file.
We've updated all our SDKs. We now have Android and Objective-C mobile SDKs, and fully featured Python, Ruby, and Java packages for web developers. We've rebuilt them so they're easier to use, and they also include documentation and example apps to help get you up and running as quickly as possible.
API security has been enhanced:
What about v0?
Right now, version 0 of the API still works exactly as it did before. However, you should upgrade to v1 when you get a chance, not only because of all the new features but also because we'll be phasing out v0. Don't worry though, we'll give you plenty of time and notice before deprecating v0.
