Thank you for the links.
My issue is there are too many clicks and mouse moves to get a public link to share a file. With dropbox the get link button is directly accessible from the right click menu of a file/folder. With owncloud 2.3.4 the link is behind an additional popup, which I accepted because it gave me the option to expire the link and it was a quick button to get the link. With owncloud 2.4 I have to open up a new box, then move and click on a different tab, then open a drop down, then select the correct option for the link, as there are now four options, I want plus a couple more clicks if I want to expire it.
From a single user owncloud installation the new share UI is excessive. Having a direct copy link in the right click menu like dropbox has would be ideal. Not sure if there is a way to expire old links in another way, I don't like having a bunch of stale links floating around.
