API Dates Still Broken
This appears to still be an issue.
Dates are now being formatted as follows:
Sun 30 Sep 2012 23:59:59
This still does not match the format described in the API documentation. Not the positions of the day and year values.
this format will not be changes as the other format you've mentioned earlier is non-standard.
We will correct the documentation. Thank you for your report.
This is very disappointing. This breaking change was introduced to the API with no warning to developers. It's very difficult to support applications when the API changes radically like this, and reflects poorly on the platform.
What mechanism is in place for developers to receive updates when API changes are going to be made?
We're very sorry for the inconvenience, we've also found about this change just now and there's unfortunately no way to revert back to the old date standard.
Any changes we make on purpose are announced on our social media channels on Google+, Facebook or Twitter.
