LC exports changed... again

Hey all.  New to this forum but long time LC investor.  I used LC off and on for several years, occasionally getting dismayed by the changes which led me to not invest for periods of time. 

Anyway this past week I decided to get back in the ring so I started rebuilding my interfaces to download and ingest the exports from LC.  I am manually downloading the files while I rebuild my db and just today I noticed that they changed their exports since two days ago.  The old URL (" class="bbc_link" target="_blank"> has now been replaced by" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">  The file has more columns which I am still trying to interpret, so I am not sure if this is for the better or worse. 

You all may not have noticed yet because the old URL still works if you manually enter it, but I imagine that this new export is soon going to be the only one available.

This crap is so annoying.  Did anyone know this was coming?


I am not sure which is worse:

- getting errors in your program because of changes in the data
- not getting errors, but also not realizing of new ways in getting data

Ideally, LC should announce these changes.

However, since LC does not have official API, they may not feel obligated to announce their "back-end" changes to developers trying to download data programatically.
