This month’s roundup includes the official launch of our Ruby SDK, upgrades to our Python and Java SDKs, and improved subscription checks for vehicle owners in Europe.
We also created some updates to our Python and Java SDKs this month. The Smartcar Python SDK now supports type hints and other features of the newest Python versions. Deprecated versions (older than Python 3.6) are no longer supported.
Both, our Python and Java SDK now feature improved error handling for exceptions. From now on, developers will only need to handle SmartcarExceptions.
Our Subscription Check feature in Smartcar Connect is now compatible with Volkswagen vehicles in Germany, the UK, Sweden, and Norway. When a user tries to link a compatible Volkswagen vehicle with an expired Car-Net subscription, Subscription Check detects the issue and provides the user with instructions to reactivate their subscription.
