- v4 of the API would be launched in May
- v3 would only be guaranteed to run until the end of May (or “several weeks” - it’s unclear)
- developers should start using “the new v4 sandbox” (not linked) immediately to prepare for the change
- “In the meantime, keep an eye on our blog, newsletter, and social media for further updates, examples, and details about the new Mapillary API.” (There have not been, afaik, any further updates on any of these channels. There hasn’t even been a newsletter since February, whereas previously there was one every month.)
This is fairly concerning.
First: the cutover timeline is incredibly short. Just “several weeks” to implement a completely new API before switching off the old one? A year or more would be typical.
Second: we are already past the date when the old API was supposedly going to be switched off, and there is still not even any documentation about the new API, no new timeline announced - complete radio silence.
Could we please have an update?
