I was looking for a way to grab the list of "featured" questions via the API, and I stumbled across several answers that all point to the same solution:

Shouldn't there be a separate call for featured questions?

Featured questions API

The solution seems to be "call the questions endpoint, with sort=featured"

This doesn't appear to be supported by API 2.0, however:



Has this been removed, or superseded by some other API call? (Or am I just doing something wrong?)

Ball got dropped on that one.

Basically, featured was a wierd sort so it was removed as an option against /questions and similar.

It is now available as /questions/featured (and /users/{ids}/questions/featured).
