Dropbox have rolled out a new desktop client, adding new features into the taskbar oriented software package.
This marks the eight time that the company have updated their code this year. This version (2.0) has received an overhaul with extra functionality. There is an enhanced Dropbox menu which alerts the user to most recent file changes and notifies them in real time when something is shared with them.
Dropbox engineer Max Belanger wrote in a blog post “We’ve made it easier than ever to accept invitations to shared folders, see links or albums that people have shared with you, and keep tabs on what’s changed in your Dropbox.
If someone shares a link with you, you can now get to it immediately — directly from the Dropbox menu! You’ll get notifications in real time as people share with you, and can see them later just by clicking the Dropbox icon. You can also accept or decline invitations to shared folders directly from your desktop.”
The new menu design is apparently available for both Mac OSX and Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 but not yet for Linux.
Kitguru says: A much welcomed overhaul.
