New editing experience

An update to the UI The editing experience has been updated to offer a better user experience when creating email campaigns or templates. Whether using marketing or transactional templates, you can choose between a marketer-friendly code editor and a flexible design editor that still offers HTML options.

Dedicated IP price increase

An update to the price We increased the monthly price for purchasing additional dedicated IPs from $20 to $30. If you already own dedicated IPs, this price change does not affect what you pay each month for the dedicated IPs you already own — that price remains at $20. We’re making the change to the price for newly-purchased dedicated IPs to better reflect our cost to source and maintain those IPs, and the value of those IPs for our customers.

Code library release notifications

An update to the API We now allow followers of our libraries to subscribe to release notifications. Subscribe from each of our GitHub Library READMEs. Signing up is as simple as checking a box and entering your info.

Increased character limit for text custom fields

Teammate-level credentials allow account owners to limit teammates to read-only views, limit their access to only those areas they need to see or give them access to secure areas to manage specific features, such as API keys.

Interactive v3 API documentation

An update to the API For developers creating and monitoring an integration with the SendGrid API, the new interactive v3 API documentation is easier to use and expedites end-to-end integration time. You can now call every endpoint in the API directly from the browser, so you can see your data in the requests and responses before you write a single line of code. Then, when you’re ready to start testing code, you can copy/paste the code from the call you just made from the “Try It” page. All of these features, including contextual search and clear as well as color-coordinated formatting, allow for easy scanning and quick solution identification.

New C# library supporting .NET Core

An update to the API Microsoft is moving towards .NET Core, and we have decided to make sure our C# library is ready when and if you decide to start rewriting your code. Our new library is .NET Standard 1.3 compliant so that our library works with C# 4.5.2 and up.

We partnered with Branch to offer easy setup and ongoing support requirements for universal links.
