List of new features and improvements that have been added to ChargeBee in October 2013. This list will be updated as we make new releases.
3. Return the "Invoice" object on all subscription related actions
When an update is made to a subscription in ChargeBee, the "Invoice" object will also be returned along with the subscription details.
This helps you capture the exact invoice details when a change is made to a subscription. Details in the invoice API documentation.
Create a subscription to start in the future.
To start a subscription at a 'future' date, you now have the option to set a "start date" while creating the subscription. The subscription will be in a "Future" state until the scheduled start date.
Further more, if the associated plan has trial period, then on the "start_date", the subscription will go into trial mode and become active only after the trial period is over.
When creating the subscription using the API you can use the "start_date" parameter to set the date. For users who're using the ChargeBee admin console, the subscription start date is available on the interface.
