Today, we’re excited to introduce the latest version of the desktop client that includes streaming sync — a newly optimized sync for large files — and other features that improve how you use Dropbox on your computer.
You might already be a fan of Camera Uploads, which beams all the photos you take on your phone and tablet straight to a safe place in your Dropbox. But have you ever wondered, “Why doesn’t Dropbox do that for the screenshots I take on my computer, too?”
Well stop wondering! Starting today, all the screenshots you take can automatically be saved straight to your Dropbox. And on top of that, Dropbox will also create a link to your screenshot and copy it to your clipboard — so your picture’s instantly good to share.
This post will be as quick and simple as the feature, we promise:
Once upon a time, we came up with a cool new way to share links. But after our team used it for a while (believe it or not, we use Dropbox here pretty frequently), we didn’t think it was quite there.
So we made it faster! Now when you want to share a link to any doc, photo, folder, or any of your stuff in Dropbox, just right-click it, and select “Share Dropbox Link”. A second later you’ll get a bubble telling you the link is in your clipboard.

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,
Hey everybody, guess what? We just released Dropbox for your Windows 8 device! Now you can enjoy photos, videos, and other stuff in your Dropbox in the whizzy new Windows experience. Check it out:
With the Dropbox app for Windows 8, you can easily flip through all your stuff, preview your pictures, and watch your videos with a tap.
You can also share stuff from Dropbox (like your puppy pics) with other Windows 8 apps! Share on Facebook or Twitter contacts through the People app or send a link with the Mail app.
We just added support for OS X Mountain Lion to our latest version of Dropbox. Today’s release is another way that we’re making sure that Dropbox just works on all your devices — even the brand spanking newest ones!
If you’re using a Mac, we’ll be auto-updating your Dropbox over the next week so you’ll be covered if you upgrade to Mountain Lion. Or you can download the latest version of Dropbox right now.
