When are new tracks available via API?

flaschbier
Hi,

two questions which would help tremendously in implementing a delta method for track data retrieval:

1. are new tracks published via the API only when they are finished (next data from that car go to new track) OR will there be updated versions of the same track later eventually?

2. Consider the situation when I have retrieved some tracks and noted the very first track_id from the API call with page=1. When I come back later: Will all NEW tracks come BEFORE the entry with the track_id noted before when I page through the data?.

I mean when I am querying the API from time to time, will I be able to just get the delta when I stop at the first track I have already seen in the last run? Or will I eventually miss some data when I do it that way?

Thank you in advance.
Flasch

P.S.: I was just pointed to this project, digged in for some hours and yet I am really, really impressed. Let's see what we can make from that data :) Do you guys have a Windows Phone app under development?

Hi Flasch,

regarding question 1:

Tracks are published when they are finished. 

@Christian: Could you help with question 2?

Cheers,

Christoph
