According to a post my John Mueller, the old GWT API will shut down on April 20, 2015. Webmasters should, of course, be migrating to the new API.


With the pending shutdown of ClientLogin, we're going to turn down the old Webmaster Tools API on April 20, 2015. Google To Shut Down Old Webmaster Tools API April 20, 2015 [googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com]


Note the date, which may, or may not be related to the change on April 21 to the new mobile SERPs. Google Mobile Smartphone Algo April 21st: Real Time And Page By Page Basis [webmasterworld.com]

So does this mean I finally have to give in and upgrade my Analytics account, or what?

No. This only applies to API usage. If you don't know what that means, it doesn't have any effect on you:)

I've used it to customize reporting.Specifically, I wanted to see Analytics, WMT, and AdSense reporting all in the same place, rather than logging in to 3 different sites.
