21.1.0 August 21, 2019
  • Caching change and ad request rate limiting: Starting from this version, Smaato’s NextGen SDK will allow publishers to request several banners or medium rectangle ads in parallel, using the same Publisher and Ad Space IDs. Parallel requests are supported for mediation as well as Unified Bidding.
  • Impression counting changes for banner ads: Smaato’s NextGen SDK supports the rendered impression counting method, which means the impression beacon is fired once the banner or MREC is added to the web-view, similar to the counting methodology of the legacy SDK. Note that for Interstitial and Rewarded Video ads, the impressions are still counted when the ad is considered viewable (at least 1% of the ad markup/video is shown).
