1. BC change in APIv2. If the launchedBy property of ServerSummaryDetailsResponse isn't set for the Farm object API method will not provide this property with the response object as it's optional.


2. BC change in APIv2 ScalingConfiguration object. API will always respond with enabled property in the result. 
Also Scalr has changed error code 'InvalidValue' on 'UnacceptableObjectConfiguration' if ScalingConfiguration.minInstances greater than ScalingConfiguration.maxInstances.
