Linux users can now test a brand-new development release of the Dropbox for Linux client, version 2.11.0, which introduces a revamped user interface, as well as various tweaks, bugfixes and enhancements.
According to the changelog, Dropbox 2.11.0 brings a completely rewritten user interface (UI) for both the Linux and Windows versions of the application. In addition, it comes with file identifiers, long path support on the Windows version, and a new headless setup flow for the Linux edition.
With Dropbox 2.11.0, users will experience faster upload times when working with small files. Additionally the splash screens have been updated and Finder icon overlays have been added on the Mac OS X version of the client.
You can download Dropbox 2.11.0 for Linux, Dropbox 2.11.0 for Windows and Dropbox 2.11.0 for Mac OS X right now from Softpedia. Keep in mind though, that this is an unstable version of the application and it shouldn’t be installed on production machines, as it may include bugs.
Because this release of Dropbox is intended for testing purposes only, users are urged to download and use the Dropbox 2.10.1 stable release from Softpedia, which introduces streaming sync, scrollable tray pop-up, better initial sync performance, an over quota "Your Dropbox is full" screen and an option to disable the "Move to Dropbox" context menu.
