Bad news, google code is depreacting downloads!
« en: Junio 12, 2013, 05:40:13 am »
Today I uploaded my new project dyko gui to my google code page and say in the "create download" section a notification that google will drop support for creating downloads in a google code project page by januari, 15, 2014. They do this because of abuse issues. What I've read on the comments of this blogger article, is that quite a lot of users are not very happy with this, including myself.

Google probably wants users to use google drive instead.  :o I think this is good reason to consider looking for alternative code hosting sites.
I don't want google drive, because of "privacy issues" and because google changes things in their services (such as the new youtube design wich sucks) without asking the users for their approval.

A lot of us use google code with it's download feature (because it's easy for end users), so we may have to look around for alternatives. I have been reading some articles and I get the feeling google may discontinue google code some day.

Why don't you upload your project to bitbucket or guithub?

I may have a look at it. Personally, I think a download feature is a necessity. It's easier for the end users and I have once tried a svn for malvado but I had not set it up properly so I couldn't comit my changes and got a bit confused with scm's. :-[
