API Version 5.1 sunsets Oct. 31, get started with Version 6 today

Dear adCenter API advertisers,

The Microsoft adCenter API Version 6 released to both the Production and Sandbox+ environments earlier this year. With API Version 6, you can  target customers more effectively, manage keyword bids more easily, and run adCenter reports more efficiently.

API Version 5.1 sunsets this October

API Version 5.1 will sunset October 31, 2009. If you are still running API Version 5.1, we recommend that you begin upgrading your WSDLs to Version 6 to avoid service interruptions beginning this fall. We will continue to support Version 5.1 through October 31, 2009. After that date, you will need to have completed your upgrade to Version 6. To give yourself time to be code complete, begin coding to Version 6 by the end of this month.
Learn all about Version 6
