API Versions

We have a few different versions of our API live. This is because we understand what we offer developers: a simple reliable service that makes their job easier by ensuring their applications continue to work with minimal maintenance.

Version Output Format Year Introduced Support Status Description

v1 png 2018 LTS Our fist versioned API capable of pins, icons, and icon stacks.
v2 png 2022 LTS We have learned a few things and made rendering icons even better.
v3 svg 2023 Active Development We are working on SVG rendering for improved performance and appearance.
