🚀 Release 2024-11

Release Date: January 24, 2024

In this release, we have deployed new feature capabilities and added several UI enhancements for a better user experience.

🎉 Feature Updates

Seamlessly Test V3 Facet Response Format with New Parameter

We are introducing a new parameter called "facet.version" that enables the independent testing of the V3 Facet response format. When "facet.version" is set to '3.0', the API will return data in the new facet format. The calls made without this parameter will still receive responses in the older facet format.

This capability facilitates a smooth and reliable migration of existing customers to the V3 Facet format by allowing them to test the change beforehand on some APIs. It also helps avoid any integration overhead.
