We have an email full of improvements and cool stuff for you today, including a new video that you can use to explain web scraping to your friends and colleagues 🤗
 SDK v1 release 🎉
After 3.5 years of rapid development, and a lot of breaking changes and deprecations, Apify SDK v1 is here. We had two goals for this release: stability and adding support for more browsers – Firefox and Webkit (Safari).
[Image “image.png”] The SDK has become really popular over the years, powering thousands of web scraping and automation projects. We think our developers deserve a stable environment to work in and by releasing SDK v1, we commit to only make breaking changes at most once a year with each new major release, and only if absolutely necessary.
Here’s our migration guide so that you can get up to speed with SDK v1.

 New video about web scraping 📺

 Organization accounts 💪
We’ve made some changes to how organization accounts work.
– A new personal account (with the same login credentials) is now created automatically when you convert your account into an organization. By converting your existing account, you preserve your existing integrations.
– We’ve updated the documentation and screenshots to reflect the new UI and account conversion process.

 Actor compute unit breakdown 🧰
You can now see your compute unit usage breakdown per actor. Just go to Billing and usage and scroll to the bottom of the page. Note that you need to have migrated to the new billing system to see this feature.
