If this post looks familiar, it's because you saw it about a month ago when we first made the announcement that adCenter API Version 6 will no longer be supported in the Sandbox or Production environments as of September 30th, 2011.  If you are still running adCenter API Version 6, we recommend that you begin upgrading as soon as possible to give yourself time to be code complete before the 30th arrives.

Two upgrade paths are available to you; you can upgrade to adCenter API Version 7 or Version 8.

If You Choose to Upgrade to adCenter API Version 7
To learn more about adCenter API Version 7, review the release notes on MSDN. There you can find additional details on the features in Version 7.

If You Choose to Upgrade Directly to adCenter API Version 8
Microsoft adCenter API Version 8 is the latest version upgrade to the API system and offers several new features and functionalities to help manage your campaigns. Version 8 is currently only available in the Production environment. To learn more about adCenter API Version 8 review the release notes on MSDN.
