:warning: Development Warning

This branch targets the development of the API client for the DNSimple API v2. If you are looking for the stable version of the client for DNSimple API v1 then use the master-v1 branch.

This version is currently under development, therefore the methods and the implementation should be considered a work-in-progress. Changes in the method naming, method signatures, public or internal APIs may happen at any time.

The code is tested with an automated test suite connected to a continuous integration tool, therefore you should not expect :bomb: bugs to be merged into master. Regardless, use this library at your own risk. :boom:
