In the month of March this year, Google had released AdWords API Ver.12, replacing the then current version, AdWords API Version 11.

Now, according to Search Engine Roundtable, Google has decided to discontinue the AdWords API Version 11 by August 26th 2008.

Here is what the AdWords API Advisor, Jeffrey Posnick has to say at Google Groups:

“In accordance with our policy of sunsetting older versions of
the AdWords API, we will turn off access to version 11 of the API on
Tuesday, August 26, 2008. Version 12 of the API has been available for
over four months now, and supports a number of new features. We hope that
you've already taken the opportunity to upgrade your code.

The latest versions of the publicly available client libraries all
support version 12 of the API, so if you're using one of those, please
check the relevant README file for information on how to switch from
version 11 to 12. The migration process should be fairly
straightforward, but one thing in particular to watch out for is that
ad group ids are no longer ints; they're now longs in version 12.

As always, if you have any questions about the AdWords API or
upgrading to our latest versions, you can check out our Frequently
Asked Questions or ask
them in our developer forum.

Cheers,
-Jeffrey Posnick, AdWords API Team”
