In addition to the upcoming VIAF changes we shared last week (currently planned for September 16), a separate release on September 14 will bring enhancements to a couple of our WorldShare Web services:
We have changed the mediatype for Atom-wrapped JSON responses from "application/json" to "application/atom+json". This change is backward compatible - users can continue using “application/json” as needed for the time being - but we do recommend incorporating this mediatype change soon.
We have updated the schema for this API and there are two particular changes users should note:
- for element loginType (in links and logins), enumeration value changed from “others” to “other”
- for element baseDeliveryMethod, we removed the value “edi” and added the value “do_not_send”
Please drop us a note if you have any questions.
