So what is different in v10?

For Version 10 of our API (its not a new parsing engine version), we focused on simplifying how you send data to the API and the format of data you receive from the API. Take a look at the examples below to understand that, for v10, only the format of the data changes, not the data itself:

API ObjectVersion 9Version 9 ProblemVersion 10Version 10 Resolution
The 'ParsedDocument' in a parse responseExample V9 Parsed DocumentThis is a string-encoded JSON object, so it is difficult to read and must be parsed as JSON before you can consume it in your application.Example V10 Parsed DocumentThis is a JSON object, so it is much more simple to browse the raw response and consume in your application.
JSON property names and valuesExample V9 SkillsThe JSON property names contain : and @. The JSON values are all strings (even the integers and booleans).Example V10 Parsed DocumentThe JSON property names are much better suited for consumption in a variety of programming languages. There is no need to parse integer and boolean values from strings.
