Howdy v3! What happened to v2?

We have dropped the leading 1. in the version number. It was meant to identify the version of the API the SDK was build to work against, but in practice it only made the numbering longer and made less obvious that we follow semantic versioning.
Version 1.2.x.y was the v2 of the SDK, in semantic versioning lingo, while version 1.1.x.y was v1.
Cocoapods already imposed us to use a 3-groups version so we were already using 2.x.y there.

What are the breaking changes?

We’ve dropped support for iOS 8, which amounts for around 0.1% of active iOS versions. Note that all iOS 8 devices were eligible for iOS 9.
We’ve also renamed some functions while providing a clear and easy upgrade path instead of bluntly breaking things and calling it a v3.

Refer to the upgrade guide for more information.
