SQL Backup Master v3.1 Now Available

Today we’re releasing SQL Backup Master v3.1. It offers a number of improvements and bug fixes, including important changes to Dropbox support.

Dropbox recently announced that “version 1” of their service API (application programming interface) is now deprecated, and will be shut down on June¬†28th, 2017.¬†Since SQL Backup Master v3.0 and earlier make use of Dropbox API v1, those installations will no longer be able to interface with Dropbox after the announced shut down date.

For SQL Backup Master v3.1, we have updated Dropbox support to use their latest service APIs. For this reason, we encourage any SQL Backup Master users that rely on Dropbox integration to upgrade prior to June of 2017.

For more information on what’s new in SQL Backup Master v3.1, please see the full product release notes.
