API v1 is now deprecated

As of today, Dropbox API v1 is deprecated. This includes both the user endpoints (a.k.a. the Core API), and the team endpoints (a.k.a. the Business API). In order to provide our developers with the most up-to-date features and support a single, consistent platform, we’ll be turning off API v1 a year from now, on 6/28/2017.

API v2 is built thoughtfully with a consistent design and adds new endpoints and features. Additionally, we’ve open-sourced our SDK generator, Stone, which revolutionizes how our SDKs are made. Stone also creates an open ecosystem for building and improving our SDKs.

[UPDATE March 24, 2016] The official date of retirement for the Datastore API is April 29th, 2016.

Last week, we announced a preview of the new Dropbox API v2, aimed at simplifying the experience of developing with Dropbox. As part of this effort to simplify our platform, we’ve decided to deprecate the Sync and Datastore APIs over the next 12 months.
