Linode’s API has grown long in the tooth. It’s not the most efficient to use but more importantly, lacks endpoints for many Linode features that have launched in the past several years. Linode has heard our complaining and launched an effort to create a new API back in April of 2016. Over a year later, they have finally promoted the new API to beta status. The feature list is inspiring, enabling a suite of better and new tools to be built for Linode in the future.
