Dropbox 1.1.40

Send Article to a Friend

Online storage service Dropbox has updated its eponymous client software to Dropbox 1.1.40, bringing back to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion status badges on Dropbox-managed files and folders so you can tell whether or not they’re updated. It also fixes a rare problem where certain Mac OS X machines wouldn’t upload files automatically. In theory, Dropbox is supposed to update itself, but it often doesn’t, in our experience, so it’s worth getting this update manually if you’re using Lion. (Free, 17.6 MB)

Is the latest version really on the website? The version of Dropbox on my Lion-updated Macs is 1.2.27 with a modification date of 8/17/2011 (2 days ago).

The 1.2 branch is only for testing, from what I can tell from their Web site. 1.1.40 is now the latest stable build.

Yeah, it can take a long time for DropBox to auto-update. I'm still at 1.1.35. I wish they'd give us an Update Now option.
