Full series zip?

Does the new api 2.0 not allow for full series zip downloading anymore? I find the documentation somewhat lacking....

....so just saw a comment by one of the mods in the API 2.0 discussion that there will be no zip files in new API. For the love of god, WHY!? This makes everything much more complicated and results in WAY more calls than necessary. I thought my personal application was going to need a slight overhaul in the URL to call/authenticate and switching from XML to JSON (something else I'm not pleased with - could you not offer both?), but now it seems a drastic overhaul will be needed. Mind you, that comment was from 2015, so I hope things have/will change in that respect - PLEASE offer the zip file download again, it was the preferred method in API 1 to reduce bandwidth and calls, so I'm not sure why this about-face happened in API 2

I used the 7zip file manager to compile files if I want an episode by episode or series I used 7zip and other files to be organized and. It was a nice compression file app.
