A few small changes

// By Dropbox Team • Oct 27, 2010

We've got some quick fixes lined-up to round out some of the edges on the API. First up: improvements to thumbnails and icons, all aimed at getting your apps looking good for prime time.

  • You can now request PNG thumbnails, in addition to JPG thumbnails, via the /thumbnails call.

  • Better error handling for badly formatted image files. Rather than returning a generic "question mark" image when we can't find a thumbnail or an image, you'll receive a proper error code.

  • A ZIP file of Dropbox icons is now provided for your use. These are based on the same Silk icons Dropbox uses and their names match the icon attribute on files returned from /metadata.

The next time you hear from us, we'll be talking about SDK improvements. After that? Well, we have some cool new calls on the drawing board that we're excited about, but we can't talk about just yet. Stay tuned!
