Changes to Bookshare Download File Formats

We recently revised our DRM policy in order to better balance the need to protect copyright holders with the goal of simplifying the user and developer experience.  As a result, a password is only required to authenticate Bookshare membership via the API and not to unzip downloaded titles. We will continue to require and enforce that all access via the API be done over secure HTTPS.  To prevent unintended transmission of sensitive credentials, we have also announced that in the near future we will be preventing HTTP access for any API call.
