DBRestClient and DBRestClientDelegate replacement in v2 Objective-C SDK

DBRestClient and DBRestClientDelegate replacement in v2 Objective-C SDK

Basically, I am surprised that the new SDK looks nothing like the old one, and want to make sure I am not missing something. I use a small subset of Dropbox, have done so for years troublefree, and don't want to introduce bugs by going the long way. The new SDK seems to be very different, and I don't understand why the interface couldn't have been kept similar, with only the back-end API changing.

Thanks for the feedback! The new Objective-C SDK was written brand-new, and not based on the old iOS Core API v1 SDK. One of the main requests we got for the old SDK was a modernized interface, e.g., using blocks, so, in combination with the entirely new API, the new SDK doesn't share much with the old one.

I'll answer your StackOverflow post with links to the relevant methods for the specific functionality you cited.
