beta download source changed?

Recommended Posts

Hey!

I have noticed that the Designer and Photo customer beta installers are now in a Dropbox folder... normally that's no problem but at work Dropbox is blocked. The Publisher customer beta is still downloadable though.

Any chance that you might change that back for Designer and Photo?

All the best,
Chris

Also what kind of work environment blocks a file sharing platform? Especially one as large as Dropbox

Well, I work in public administration and it is blocked due to high security measurements and policies. :-)

Is it downloads or uploads they don't like? 

I switched to using Dropbox to download the betas because the downloads are faster for most people. I didn't consider that places may block Dropbox...

Thank you for the response. 

Hmmm, Dropbox and file-sharing in general is -  due to obvious reasons - blocked totally. The website und app is not working at all. 

Ah, I see. Although never had problems with the old download source. Also Publisher beta downloaded fine today. 

PS: also no problems with normal version downloads and their updates from the online store. Works all fine!

It's a shame they block the download domain (dl.dropboxusercontent.com) as well, as that only serves download links, and doesn't enable file sharing.

Yes, they tend to be too cautious. Makes my live not easier but I have to do my work anyway.

As said, normal updates and downloads of the release versions work fine.

Always like to test new features from the beta though. Kind of cut off from them now. But it's not a big deal. 

Thanks anyway for responding, @Mark Ingram :11_blush: appreciate it!

No problem. Chances are the beta will move back to Amazon S3 at some point again, I'm just running a little experiment at the moment, following complaints of poor download speeds from some regions in the World.

I'm having a similar problem with Dropbox. I've got Photo and Designer licences. I downloaded the latest Photo Beta this evening and tried to download the Designer Beta.

That resulted in a 401 error, telling me that I don't have the right to download.

Why not host it on both? Having multiple mirrors should certainly increase the chances of users having higher dl speeds

We certainly could do, though I think the solution longer term will be using CloudFront as well as S3, then it should be fast for everyone (in the same way that the store works).
