API v3 has been in place for nearly a year. We’ve seen a large increase in the amount of API consumers and have ambitious future plans for it. However, at some point we have to let the old code go. A single codebase will allow us to provide a more reliable and secure API.
We will terminate API v1 and API v2 in 1 month on June 1st, 2012. (Note: The date was pushed back a month from the original date).
For those that depend on the API, we’re setting up a @githubapi Twitter account for announcements. You can also follow changes to the API documentation on its Git repository. The motto for API v3 has been: “it’s not shipped if it’s not documented”.
Let us know through firstname.lastname@example.org or our Contact form if API v3 is missing features that you depend on for API v2. If you have a friend or Nagios alert that’s using API v2, be sure to let them know too.
