Version 1.15 of DoubleClick For Advertisers (DFA) API has arrived and includes following bugs fixation:

Placement End Dates "will now be converted before they are validated" - "Previously, both campaign and placement end dates always use midnight in the Eastern Time Zone as their ending time. When saving a placement, the placement's end date was checked against its campaign's end date before the time of day was converted. This resulted in the API erroneously informing users in certain time zones that their placement end dates were past the end dates of their campaign. Placement end dates will now be converted before they are validated," explains DFA API Team.

"getAssignedCreativeGroupsToCreative" operation - This operation, located in the creative service, was never returning results. It will now do so.

Clearing Remarketing Lists - Users were able to set and modify Remarketing lists targeting via the userListExpression field of a targetable ad through the API, "will also now be able to clear these lists."

v1.13, is now considered to be deprecated -- and will be removed from service on October 1st, 2011.

Also, announced the sunset of v1.14 in early January of 2012. "With this release we are announcing the planned end of v1.14 far in advance of its early January sunset date," the DFA API team added.
