    $\begingroup$ The 2.66 version you use in your link is old - we now have a link that always points to the newest API www.blender.org/api/blender_python_api_current/ $\endgroup$ – sambler Aug 30 '16 at 4:43

I normally just type 2.77 when I google something in the api b/c the search bar in the docs works horribly (you have to almost know the answer to what you are looking for to be able to find it). $\endgroup$ – JakeD Aug 30 '16 at 10:57
