  • Quick search API - Bug fix: Searches using permission filters not returning the correct results. Searches now return data that can be downloaded.
  • Data API - Added /thumb endpoint to items. Each item now allows direct access to a down-sampled preview of the data.
  • Data API - Disassociated activation and download throttling. There used to be a single rate limit for activating and downloading assets, but Planet has split this into two separate rates that can be controlled separately. This should give API users greater control over how they access data and apply backoff strategies to prevent 429 error codes.
  • Data API - Increased download rate limit to 2 requests per second.
  • Data API - Bug fix: Removed incorrectly-advertised analytic asset from some items. Not all PSScene3Band and PSScene4Band items have analytic assets.
