A report on the web claims that Dropbox deprecated its UWP app and implied that Huyn's departure is connected to the deprecation. Huyn responded to the report by clarifying that Dropbox has not deprecated its UWP app. He also added that his departure is not connected to any app deprecation, which makes sense as the Dropbox UWP app has not been deprecated.
Huyn is one of the most recognized and respected developers within the UWP community, so many will be happy to see that he is focusing on the platform. His next role should be announced in the relatively near future.
