Notable changes for this release include a new DRM attributes route in the Backlot API that generates a PlayReady key_id and content_key.
The Backlot API has a new DRM attributes route for generating a PlayReady key_id and content_key.
You now have a way to generate a PlayReady key_id and content_key through Ooyala APIs. This route will generate a random key id and content key for the asset and associate them with the video. If you use this route, you will not have to use a PATCH route to store these attributes in Ooyala's datastore.

Notable changes for this release include updated support for VAST on the Ooyala mobile SDKs and updated Aspera documentation.
Ooyala's support for VAST on the iOS and Android mobile SDKs for Player v3 has recently changed the way ad impressions are tracked in Ooyala Pulse. For podded ad sets like mid-roll ads, impressions are tracked when each individual ad in a podded ad set has started to play. This gives you a more accurate view of ad impressions tracked for sessions played through the Ooyala Player via iOS and Android applications.
