Is there any support to get compressed results or are you planning to integrate this?
Thanks, Timo

Just last week we launched GZIP compression on the API. Are you seeing compressed results now?

@fishinmobile - You'll still see json/xml because the compression happens behind the scenes. No request changes are typically necessary.

@Brendan Hayes - Looking at the response headers for the API today, it looks like it is using deflate, not gzip, which is probably good in this case, as it is usually faster than gzip.
