If you are planning to use Google Drive to host your Files then you are in the right place!
Previously, most bloggers would use Google Code (http://code.google.com/hosting) to host these files because Google Code’s project hosting feature is very simple to use and free. But since Google announced that they are deprecating almost all download options for Project hosting on Google Code, we have to switch to Google Drive as recommended by Google itself.
Starting today, existing projects that do not have any downloads and all new projects will not have the ability to create downloads. Existing projects with downloads will see no visible changes until January 14, 2014 and will no longer have the ability to create new downloads starting on January 15, 2014. All existing downloads in these projects will continue to be accessible for the foreseeable future.
If your project is using downloads to host and distribute files and has a need to periodically create new downloads, we recommend you move your downloads to an alternate service like Google Drive before January 15, 2014.
