Upcoming RestAuth 0.7, new "REPs", RestAuthCommon 0.7.0

RestAuth version 0.7 is scheduled for release soon. We are happy with the changes but intend to update RestAuth and RestAuthClient first to make sure no inconsistencies or problems have arisen.

  • The new protocol version was influenced from real-world experience and features several new requests and parameters to speed up RestAuth significantly.
  • This release will also features the first incompatibility previous protocol versions: Getting and setting a property will return a dictionary, confusing client libraries that don't understand the new version. Due to the new X-RestAuth-Version header, we will make sure that the server will return data in the correct format for old clients.
  • Many minor improvements as well, see Specificiation for a full list of changes.

Additionally, we now also have RestAuth enhancement proposals. They will be primarily used to specify new data formats (JSON is now also specified in an REP) and functionality outside of the core protocol.

We've also just release RestAuthCommon 0.7.0, see the ChangeLog for a full list of changes.
