Dropbox to kill off public folders?


Dropbox va-t-il mettre fin au "dossier public"?


Heureusement, les anciens "dossiers publics" pourront continuer à fonctionner et cette fonction sera remplacée par autre chose...


The popular storage service is reportedly ditching its public folders after July 31, telling developers that they should make a change to their application functionality.

Dropbox's public folders might soon be a thing of the past.
According to German site Mobiflip (Translate), Dropbox has e-mailed developers, informing them that as of August 1, public folders will no longer be supported by the service. Public folders will be officially replaced by a new Link feature the company announced in April, according to the e-mail.
"After July 31, we will no longer create Public folders in any new Dropbox accounts," the e-mail reportedly reads. "If your app depends on Public folders, we recommend switching to the /shares API call. Public folders in existing accounts, however, will continue to function as before."
Dropbox's public folders have become one of the easiest ways for users to share files over the Web. Users need only to drop the file into their public folder and direct folks to it, who can then download it. With the new links function, however, Dropbox users need to choose the "get link" option to share a file or folder with others.
