[API Breaking Change] November 10, 2019: API supports list values for cells via url param

As part of a series of improvements to our API, we’ve added support for returning nested lists when returning rows from a table or view. Previously, if a cell contained a list value, it would be converted to a comma-separated string. In addition to reducing the fidelity of responses, this could create confusion when a cell contained a one-element list, which in the old output format looks identical to a string.

You can now get nested list values when passing the url parameter valueFormat=simpleWithArrays to the /rows endpoints.

This will become the default behavior on November 10, 2019.

We will be cross-posting this and similar updates to the API change log.
