Hi Scott,
yes indeed there are new search parameters.

You can search for occurrences that have some multimedia like this now:

or just images like this:

A list of available search parameters is here, we still have to update our API doc portal page I am afraid:

For processing issues you can now search with a rich issue parameter like this:

All available issue values can be found here:

Combined with a dataset key this should be useful to debug individual dataset problems.

Hope this is useful to publishers. It surely is really useful for us to spot problems!
