July 16 2018

This is a minor release with a few user facing changes. Most changes are new and old behavior should not change.

  • Incorrect archive_type results in a validation error. See Zipping Results section of documentation. This is an optional field and if you haven't been setting it, the type will default to zip.
  • You can now specify your webhook callback to be per_order: true. This is an optional parameter and, if omitted, the default behavior will be used whereby you’ll receive a webhook callback per bundle. See the Webhook section of documentation.
  • We have new validation rules on orders to ensure correct type of parameters (you can't use a number in a string field), and cannot specify operations that do not exist.
