Hello all, we’re going to be making a few tweaks to the Lists API, ie.
First off: we’ll be migrating the API to a brand new backend. This will enable us to better support the API, and bring new features every now and then—for instance, just recently we added a
count parameter to
/1.1/lists/members to help with paging through large lists. We’re looking forward to fixing some long-standing bugs too.
Secondly: we’ll be changing the way that error messages work. Currently the API supports returning multiple precondition failures in a single error response, eg. “The list failed validation: A list’s name must start with a letter; A list’s name can’t be more than 25 characters long” . We will be removing this functionality in favor of returning only a single failure reason even when multiple exist.

we will be making the first two of these changes during the week of January 5th
the migration to 64 bit IDs is slated for late January; stay tuned for an exact date
