Release Notes

PerceptiveMCAPI – v 1.3.0: Change Log – BETA 2

Release Notes – General

  • Support for MailChimp Export Api is ACTIVE
    • OK, I said it wasn't going to be done until 1.3.1, but I lied – it's ready now. I just got tired of seeing it on the project list.
  • A few fixes, and further testing completed
  • See change log for changes and Export Api implementation details

PerceptiveMCAPI – v 1.3.0: Change Log – BETA 1

Release Notes – General

  • This release targets the new functionality and formats used in the MailChimp Api v1.3.0 changes. These notes only reflect changes made since v1.2.5.3 of the PerceptiveMCAPI wrapper.
  • Support for JSON objects as input will be deferred until PerceptiveMCAPI v.1.3.1 and combined with other features I think you'll like; think Export and STS.
  • The PerceptiveMCAPI_UI ('testing' UI) is dropped, or I suppose you could say temporarily re-purposed. It was too time-consuming to keep going as part of this project and too inflexible for testing the wrapper with the increased number of methods and complexity of formats. Its temporary new role will be one of providing implementation samples in the short term, until its utter demise after help docs & samples are put on my (hopefully) soon-to-be-reworked website.
  • One of the main reasons it took this long to get the v1.3 release out was that the 'testing' UI was really built as a prototype for method implementation – not as a testing platform. So I decided to write a testing platform that, while still a work in progress, has already made it easier to run repeatable test scenarios, and target edge cases, etc. I had planned on doing it after this release, but just ran into too much time consuming effort making changes on the UI system – as well as the 'manual' testing time – and decided to bite-the-bullet now rather than later. And since I've been doing only MVC development for the last year or so, looking at changing the web form controls again made my head hurt. Things will go faster from this point forward, but that delayed things quite a bit.
  • Please remember that, until I get my website re-worked, the MailChimp site documentation is the primary source for parameter names & values and how things should work, with my documentation as supplemental information about my .NET wrapper specifics.

Reviews for this release

Found this library super easy to use. Wish it had more sample code though. I used this to integrate MailChimp into an ASP.NET MVC4 app. I wanted email subscription opt in/out in my user's settings page to directly control their list settings on MailChimp. Works like a charm.
