Last time I tried it only allowed to push rates and import bookings. Is there any new features to it now?

There was no API integration previously. You're referring to Channel Bridge, but that's not API (strictly speaking). Channel Bridge is a sophisticated screen scraping tool that simulates you (the Airbnb user) to crawl and grab data from your account.

We have been working furiously on a real API integration with Airbnb at a partner level. It's done now, and we're certified with Airbnb but adding users on a beta one-at-a-time basis as we work through some bugs and testing.
