Did the HipChat API's card support change? Edited

The HipChat documentation about messages appears to be lot less descriptive compared to what it looked like before. Did the API's card support change in any way? For example it is very unclear from the new documentation what fields are available for cards and whether for example thumbnails can be used as part of an activity type notification?

Based on the original documentation I have came up with a JSON schema for the cards, can anyone actually verify whether this schema still matches up with how HipChat servers accept cards? (The schema files can be found here.)

Is there any possibility that schema violation error messages become more readable and actually helpful? Trying to figure out what went wrong with an error message like the one here is a bit cumbersome..

Additionally I would be very much interested to know whether Atlassian makes the JSON schema for cards available themselves (rather than having to manually deduce it from a table from an old version's documentation).
