Six to Eight's user display has just broken, as the /user/id/timeline route seems to have started returning different data. Previously, timeline_type of entries in the user_timelines array used to be one of comment, askoranswered, badge, revision, or accepted. According to the documentation, it's now one of ...

all, comments, posts, badges, revisions, or accepts

    Thanks for the quick fix, Kevin. But, erm, could we perhaps get some regression testing run every time you push an update?
