Experimental release:

This build incorporates lots of backports from the latest stable build (1.1.35) as well as a couple of major improvements to our keychain integration on the Mac:


  • Fixed rare issue that would cause Dropbox to not start on any version of Mac OS X.
  • Fixed rare issue where Dropbox would ignore ACL-only permissions on Mac OS X that would cause it to not sync local changes without a restart.
  • Assorted updates to our debugging facilities on Windows after our security audits.
  • Fixed issue on Mac OS X where Dropbox would become unlinked if keychain items were synced using MobileMe.
  • Dropbox now provides more debugging information in the very rare event that it crashes on Linux.
  • Fix to issue on some versions of Linux that don't provide librt.so that would force you to manually login to the website when linked to from the desktop client.
  • Fix to issue on Mac OS X that would force you to manually login to the website after the computer had gone to sleep
  • Fix to regression in 1.2.x that would cause language settings to be lost after a relink.
  • Added guard in Mac OS X version to prevent user's from accidentally unlinking their Dropbox after refusing keychain privileges.

We strongly recommend making a backup of your Dropbox before upgrading to this build as we'll need a few weeks to be certain of its stability. We will rapidly release new builds every couple days to snipe the most common issues as they arise.

Sadly as a result of the new database some 3rd party apps that relied on our old database format to sync with Dropbox will stop working (Examples include KFilebox, DropboxPortableAHK)
