Dropbox has updated its eponymous file synchronization app to version 3.10.8 with some changes to its commenting and collaboration features (see “Dropbox Adds File Comments,” 1 May 2015). Dropbox adds more hiding options for the Badge (which appears on any Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Excel file saved in your Dropbox), and the Badge will notify you if collaborators made changes since the last time you opened the file (though this is currently being rolled out to only a subset of users). The update also fixes a bug that prevented certain versions of AutoCAD from syncing, fixes issues with inconsistent LAN sync performance, and improves network utilization on downloads for fast Internet connections. The update should install automatically. (Free, 43 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
