Plan Overages and New Plans

We have released a super cool feature for users who frequently run out of quota at the end of the month. 🎉

Your API calls will not fail after your hit your quota and you will continue to use our service at a pre-defined rate based on your plan.

New users will have this feature enabled by default. Current users who want to enable this feature have to navigate to Subscription Plan page under console.

We highly recommend you to upgrade your plan if your usage is much higher than your plan's quota since bigger plans have a lower cost per API call. This feature is useful if your usage is slightly exceeding your quota and you don't want to upgrade your plan.

Moreover, we have a brand new 100k plan for both HTML to PDF API and Screenshot API due to high demand.

Custom Headers and Footers on Startup Plan

Due to popular demand, we decided to enable custom PDF headers and footers on our Startup plan. If you already on the Startup plan, you can immediatly start using these features.

Custom Filenames

We just added custom filenames support to the API. In order to save your files with a specified filename, you can now pass a filename=xx.png parameter. If you also set json=true, that will return a CDN path ending with your requested filename. Otherwise, we will add a content-disposition header to ensure that client browsers do download the file with the filename that you provide.

JPEG Rendering Optimizations

If you are requesting jpeg images you will now receive higher quality images without any noticable file size increase. This also reflects on capture performance so in order to decrease file sizes while maintaining quality, we suggest using jpeg instead on png.

Delay Option Improvements

We have made several improvements to delay option and the order which we apply the delay.

Delay is now applied after all javascript / css injection jobs are completed and several jobs causing implicit delays (such as prescrolling page to render lazy assets) are merged together so their delays will not stack together.

Wait mode: dom

It is now possible to pass wait=dom parameter in order to wait for domready event before render. The default is wait=load which waits for window.onload event.

This way you can create faster captures and handle such sites where loading hangs or takes a lot of time.

Faster API Calls

We have deployed a new capturing architecture which improves our capturing performance 30% in average. These changes have been made available to all users without any modifications required on your side.
