– Fix Windows installer sometimes failing to install properly.

– A new tray popup that combines the old tray menu features with a timeline of the most important sharing events in your Dropbox.

– Notifications menu is only enabled on OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) and above, and on Windows XP and above.

  1. And yet, they can’t incorporate something like Sparkle into the DropBox app for updating. You have to manually check their website [or find out some other way] that an update is available and manually download and install it every time.

  2. Sucks, right!?!?!? My version of DropBox is always reporting that it is up to date, until I see it elsewhere, like this article. As great as DB, you would think they could include a decent update feature….

  3. When DropBox says “Up-to-date”, it means that all files in your DropBox folder are the latest versions. While I am a bit disappointed by DropBox’s lack of auto-update, it does have a uniquely smooth update process on the Mac: the first time you open the new app it automatically replaces the old one and unmounts its own DMG.

  4. The iOS version was also updated today to 2.2.1
