The new release of API V5 is a significant upgrade from V4 with improvements including added reporting features, the ability to retrieve objects by id, improvements to ease updating campaign information, improved error handling and the normalization of object model names.
When planning your migration to V5, please approach the project as new application development rather than minor maintenance to an existing application. We will be running V4 and V5 in parallel for 180 days, after that when V4 will be retired.
To help you in your migration process the adCenter team will be holding webcasts with conference calls the third Tuesday of each month, during which we can help address questions around the API.
