Pulling News Headlines Older than 15 Months

I am looking for an update on whether the Eikon Data API can pull news articles beyond 15 months. The most recent post I could find (linked below) has not yet included that capability. I am not looking for news regarding a specific ticker.

Thanks

According to the Eikon Data API Usage and Limits Guideline, it is still limited to 15 months.

get_news_headlines: The current limit value (10-Oct-2019) is 100 headlines per request. The depth of history is 15 month.
