The since parameter of /inbox/unread no longer seems to work.

I enter a date after the creation date of the item currently unread in my inbox and still the item is returned. I try putting in tomorrows date (so there should be nothing in my inbox since tomorrow as it hasn't happened yet), and it still returns the unread items.

Hmm, I bet this is a caching bug. Should have an update/fix shortly. – Kevin Montrose Apr 5 '12 at 18:21
It's not caching bug on my end, I've tried different browsers etc, if thats what you meant? Thanks :) – Jonathan. Apr 5 '12 at 18:32
No, it's a bug in our code; I think the since parameter is working... just sometimes bogus things are getting pulled out of the cache, so that the since code isn't even running. – Kevin Montrose Apr 5 '12 at 18:34

This should be fixed now, we weren't properly considering the since parameter when fetching results from the cache.

In effect if you ever asked for unread inbox items twice, once with and once without since, you'd get the same result back until the cache cleared.
