Dropbox has some good news for the developers who use their APIs in their products and services.

Dropbox API gets a major update with support for /delta calls

The company has released two APIs that can be used on production ready apps:

The single biggest feature request since we launched the API is the ability to keep up with changes to files in a user’s Dropbox. So, we’re happy to announce that the /delta call is out and ready to use in production!
It returns a list of files and folders that have been added, deleted, or modified since the last time you called /delta, allowing you to update your local state incrementally to match.

Dropbox further added about another feature for the developers:

Last, we’ve also added a new SDK for OS X developers (in addition to our existing iOS SDK). This will make distributing through the Mac App Store easier. If you’ve already used the iOS SDK, the OS X SDK will be a snap.
