Getting the latest Dropbox app

After reading another review of the overhauled Dropbox 2.0 I became perplexed why my Dropbox hadn't updated yet. I was still back on an older 1.6.x version with the older interface, even though Dropbox is supposed to auto-update.

To determine what version you're running:
  • With 1.x, click on the Dropbox icon in your menu bar and choose Preferences > Account. 
  • With 2.x, hold down the Option key and click on the Dropbox icon in your menu bar and choose Preferences > Account.
I went to Dropbox's download site and manually downloaded and installed the latest which is 2.0.6, at the time of this writing.

I know many Curio customers use Dropbox and it looks like lots of bugs have been fixed recently, so if you're not on 2.0.6 then make sure to grab the latest version.

On a related note, Curio 8.4.1 and above support a new, much easier technique for syncing your Curio application support folder across multiple machines using Dropbox.
