adCenter API Production Environment Upgraded to Version 7

We recently released the new Microsoft adCenter API Version 7 to the API Production environment. The newest features from the adCenter Summer 2010 Upgrade and several key API improvements are now available to you. adCenter API Version 7 will replace adCenter API Version 6 in the coming months. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the new features and plan to upgrade your WSDLs to Version 7 to avoid service interruptions later this year. We will continue to support Version 6 for up to a year, and we will provide more information about its sunset in the coming months.
