StreamWork Q2 2012 Release – API Changes

On July 20, 2012 the StreamWork Q2 2012 release was deployed into production. If you want to know more about the new features please  checkout the Release Notes.

Besides added functionality the StreamWork API were also enhanced.  The release notes do talk about the API enhancements to but don’t tell you how exactly you can use the enhancement to the API. The release notes tell you that you are now able to “get versions of specific text items” but leaves it up to you to find out how exactly you can do this.

I wanted to know more and searched through the API documentation. This was a cumbersome exercise and I decided to share what I have found out via this blog. It might not be 100% complete. If I missed something just get back to me and I will update this blog.

So here is what I have found out:
