The London endpoint was removed. Rackspace now has one global endpoint for authentication using the Identity service.
The maximum value for the limit parameter was changed to 100 for the claim messages operation.
In this release, billing begins for the Cloud Queues service. As part of the Rackspace Cloud, your use of the Rackspace Cloud Queues API will be billed according to the pricing schedule on the Cloud Queues product page.
The maximum size of posted messages is now the maximum size of the entire request document, including whitespace, rather than the sum of the individual message “body” parameter values.
On error, the client is now notified by how much the request exceeded the limit.
The maximum size of metadata is now the maximum size of the document, including whitespace.
For the post message operation, you must now include at least a single message in a JSON array or you will receive the error message Invalid request body.
You can no longer use the claim_id parameter when issuing the operation to get messages by ID.
This is the initial Unlimited Availability (UA) release of the Rackspace Cloud Queues API.
