I am not finding a way to return a list of new questions by tag with the new stack exchange api.

Am I missing something or is this not available? If this is not available, I most certainly request this feature.

Do you want something like "the most recent 10 questions with a certain tag?" – Nathan Osman Feb 12 '12 at 4:20
Yes, I want precisely that. – swaggler Feb 12 '12 at 7:25

There are 2 ways to get the 10 most recent questions of a tag, either on the /questions method or /search method.

The parameters on both routes are the same, just set tagged to your tag (eg iphone), and sort to creation, and order to desc

So that's either:


The difference between the two is that if you search with multiple tags (seperated by semi-colons), eg (c#;iphone):
The /questions method will return questions which have both the c# and iphone tags.
Whereas the /search method will return questions tagged either c# or iphone (or both).
