DSS single call to get results of schedule's LastExtraction

I understand that I can now get the content of an extracted file (for a given schedule) in a single call:

../Extractions/Schedules('12345')/LastExtraction/$value ../Extractions/Schedules('12345')/LastExtraction/FullFile/$value ../Extractions/Schedules('12345')/LastExtraction/NotesFile/$value

1. What is the difference between the "/LastExtraction/$value" and "/LastExtraction/FullFile/$value" calls?

2. Are these calls treated as synchronous?

3. Is there any documentation with examples available?

Regarding documentation: in the REST API Reference Tree, under LastExtraction we see it returns a ReportExtraction:

If you then go to the ReportExtraction section, you find under GetDefaultStream the description for the first URL (../Extractions/Schedules('12345')/LastExtraction/$value):

The descriptions for the other 2 links are under FullFile and NotesFile, in the same section.

1. /LastExtraction/$value is a shortcut for /LastExtraction/FullFile/$value. There is also a notes file as you mention above, but the FullFile is the default and most important.

2. They are all stream endpoints and synchronous.

3. I will let someone else respond regarding documenation.

Re 3. Would you have "Release Notes for DataScope Select 10.8" please?

@mdoberschuetz, re your last comment:

please note the current release is 11.2 (and as this is a server based product every one is using 11.2). The latest release notes (all documentation actually) are available here, but 10.8 is not there as it is old (2016). That said, to respond to your request I tried to attach the 10.8 release note, but it is too large. Would you like me to email it to you ?

Yes, please. If possible I need release notes from 10.7 (including 10.7) up to 11.1 (I can get them from https://developers.thomsonreuters.com/datascope-select-dss/datascope-select-rest-api/docs).
