    • New API custom event system (breaking change)
      • API events are now registered to player instance with the on and one methods and unregistered with the off method. We no longer use addEventListener or removeEventListener with synthetic DOM events - instead we have built a full custom event system within the player library. This allows for events to be dispatched faster and prevents polluting the DOM with synthetic events which could lead to edge bugs difficult to troubleshoot.
    • Full Google Analytics 4 support (breaking change)
      • Our updated Google Analytics 4 integration now requires developers to explicitly add the Google tag (gtag.js) on the page where the player stands. The player no longer automatically load and configure Google Analytics client-side JavaScript library. This allows for more advanced configuration of Google tag
      • Adds enableGAVideoTracking setting

    • PLATFORM Edition allowlisting and denylisting (breaking change)
      • When submitting JSON allowlisting and denylisting files to our back-end, the JSON file needs to adhere to a new structure: "blacklist" key is replaced with "denylist" key, "whitelist" key is replaced with "allowlist" key, "appWhitelist" key is replaced with "appAllowlist" key - while you can still use the old keys for backward compatibility reasons it is recommended to use the new keys when updating to Radiant Media Player 9+
