The newest version of the DFA API is now available: v1.17. This release includes a variety of bug fixes, many of which resolve issues that you reported on our forum. It also pares down a few outdated and unused operations.
Bug Fix Highlights
Some of the bugs tackled in this release include:
- Placement end date validation has been fixed. [Reported on our forum]
activeFilterfield of AdSearchCritera is no longer ignored. [Reported on our forum]
- Attempting to save an incorrect DefaultAd now gives a more descriptive error message. [Reported on our forum]
expectedUrlfield of SpotlightActivity is now required. Passing in a
nullvalue used to result in a default URL of "http://". It now results in an invalid URL error.
Deprecation and Sunset of v1.15
With this new release, our friend v1.15--the version from two releases ago--is now deprecated. As previously announced, we will continue to support it until March 3rd, 2012 at which time it will be entirely removed from service. Be sure to migrate any applications currently using v1.15 to one of the two supported versions by this time. Come benefit from the v1.17 fixes!
Sunset of v1.16 in Early June
Keeping with our standard release cycle, v1.16 will be sunset in early June. Please use this time window to make arrangements for migrating any v1.16 implementations before it is retired.
