The public events API is now delayed by five minutes. As a result, when you query the API, the most recent event returned will have occurred at least five minutes ago. The API is otherwise unchanged and continues to support pagination and fetching of up to 300 events. No other events APIs are affected and they will continue to deliver events in real time.
