The OpenAPI 3.0.3 specification was released late last week. It is primarily a patch release to improve readability and accuracy, but doesn't change the behavior of the specification.
The OpenAPI specification is a standardized API description format that allows entire REST APIs to be described in either JSON or YAML, including endpoint locations, methods and their parameters, required authentication, and contact information for technical support and assistance. The standardized format makes it easy to generate client libraries in various programming languages, simplify use with API tools, IDEs, and integration products, and generate interactive documentation.
Some of the changes in this release include clarification of Path Templating, Semantic Versioning, and the notion of optional security on operations. Some included hyperlinks were edited and examples were improved.
