At bit.ly we’ve been working hard to improve the speed and reliability of our API endpoints, provide simpler, more consistent response formats, and clarify our API documentation. This V3 release goes a long way towards accomplishing those goals. All V3 methods support identical JSON and XML response formats. JSONP is likewise universally supported, and many methods support an additional plain text response format.
We have also added a simpler, more efficient method to lookup bit.ly click counts, as well as a method to query bitly.Pro domain status.
Many of these changes started as user requests, and we are looking forward to adding more API endpoints to access bit.ly data based on your feedback.3 years ago
