 It offers a light-weight access to the latest version of the Amazon 
 Product Advertising API without getting in your way.
 
-== Status ==
-
-This module is still undergoing development. The support for the Amazon Product
-API is currently limited to a number of operations. 
-Supported so far are:
-
-* ItemLookup
-* ItemSearch
-* SimilarityLookup
-* ListLookup
-* ListSearch
-* BrowseNodeLookup
-
-More functionality is to follow as development progresses. Have a look at the preliminary [[ReleasePlan]].
-
-== Requirements ==
-
-The only requirement is [[http://codespeak.net/lxml/objectify.html|python-lxml]] >=2.1.5. However, people can use their own.

 All its content can be accessed using the [[http://codespeak.net/lxml/objectify.html|lxml.objectify]] API.
 
+== Status ==
+
+Right now, you can call **all** API methods using
+
+{{{
+#!python
+node = api.call(Operation='ItemSearch', SearchIndex='Books', Publisher='Galileo Press')
+}}}
+
+While you still get a parsed XML response and basic exception handling, this can be quite cumbersome. That's why a number of //convenience methods// exist, which offer a more concise way of using the underling operation and special exceptions. So far, these are limited to:
+
+* ItemLookup
+* ItemSearch
+* SimilarityLookup
+* ListLookup
+* ListSearch
+* BrowseNodeLookup
+* CartAdd, CartModify, etc.
+
+More functionality is to follow as development progresses. Have a look at the preliminary [[ReleasePlan]].
