Relative dates
All Core API and MCF Reporting API queries previously required a start and end date. In the past, apps that displayed recent data - like the last 14 days - would have to manually determine today’s date, determine when 14 days ago was, and format the dates so they could be used.

To make things easier, we’ve added support for relative dates! You can now specify NdaysAgo as a value of either the start or end date.Google Adds Sample Size Control and Relative Dates Features In Analytics API [analytics.blogspot.com]
Sample size control
In certain cases, data may be sampled. To simplify setting and reporting the impact of sampling, we’ve added a couple new sampling related features.

First, we added a new query parameter to set the level of sampling. Developers can now specify whether reports should be faster or be more precise.

Second, we added 2 new fields to the API response:

sampleSize - The number of samples that were used for the sampled query.
sampleSpace - The total sampling space size. This indicates the total available sample space size from which the samples were selected.
