Great work guys!

As a PHP engineer, I think that's the best way to make progress.

Today, we launch v201405 of the DFP API. This release brings better OAuth2 standards, consolidates line item goal information, and adds a lot more report fields. For more information on this release, please see our blog post linked below.

The IMA SDK for iOS version beta7 will introduce some changes in the way you tell the SDK about your display area and companion slots, which lays the groundwork for more versatility in displaying ads. While these new, more versatile features aren’t quite ready yet, we recommend building with beta7 so you'll be prepared to take advantage of upcoming greater versatility and extending support to future iOS platforms.

Until now, the DFP API only supported the OAuth 2.0 native/installed application flow. The OAuth 2.0 service account flow was only supported it you had a Google Apps for Business Account. Today, we’re unveiling the new OAuth 2.0 service account flow for DFP. This authorization flow has been simplified to no longer require a Google Apps domain. We’ve also updated the DFP web UI to allow service accounts to be added to be a DFP network. See the link below for more information.

A Thousand Kilobots Self-Assemble Into Complex Shapes

When Harvard roboticists first introduced their Kilobots in 2011, they'd only made 25 of them. When we next saw the robots in 2013, they'd made 100. Now the researchers have built one thousand of them. That's a whole kilo of Kilobots, and probably the most robots that have ever been in the same place at the same time, ever.

At Google, we always want to be transparent with you about changes to our API. We recently announced v201405 of the DFP API, and, in v201405, we consolidated a line item's goal fields into its own Goal object and added the field LineItem.primaryGoal. During this refactor, the LineItem.duration (previous versions) field was removed from LineItem, but didn't make it into the Goal object due to an implementation error. This means that, in v201405, you cannot set the duration field when creating or updating line items. Instead, the server will set it to the default value. #dfpapi
