We are pleased to announce our full support of OpenSocial 0.9 today. Last week we gave you a sneak peek of our OpenSocial 0.9 support by launching our photo API. This week we’re taking it one step further: we’re releasing all of our current OpenSocial 0.9 REST APIs as a public BETA. Here at MySpace we are committed to open standards, and will continue to support community driven protocols like OpenSocial. We’re very excited to take this big step to support OpenSocial 0.9!
Our OpenSocial 0.9 implementation was built on an entirely new framework with three main goals in mind for developers: stability, performance and compliance to the OpenSocial 0.9 specification. These three goals will yield more consistent results, fewer errors, and means that your code should be even more portable to other social networks that support OpenSocial.
While we’re labeling this as a BETA we feel our APIs are in a very solid state and are ready for widespread use.
The PHP and C# SDKs have been fully updated to use all of the new 0.9 APIs we have available. The other SDKs are currently being updated for your use.
