Greetings Dropbox citizens!
Did you open up http://www.dropbox.com today to find something new and shiny? After several weeks of hard work, the web team is proud to unveil the redesigned Dropbox web interface.
A few things you’ll notice:
- Bulk operations (finally)! Moving/deleting folders is now possible!
- Navigation is now on the top rather than the left.
- Information/actions are now displayed in small sideboxes on the right
- Font changes! (lucida grande on mac, lucida sans unicode for windows)
- Expanded footer
- The FAQ is gone and has been replaced by a comprehensive help center
- RSS feed for recent events!
- While ‘Files’ is still accessible, the default view is the home page. To those of you worrying that the feed takes up too much space, we’ll be addressing this in the near future.
- ‘Upload’ has also been integrated into the filebrowser
- More information for file revisions
- Much more!
More changes are on their way too, so sit tight.
So, how does it look? What do you like? What don’t you like? Let us know!

Quick update on Linux support. Dropbox now officially supports Ubuntu 8.10 :-). The latest release (0.6.416) resolves the last of the Intrepid specific issues we know of. The Intrepid repository up and running and ready to add to your apt sources:
deb http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu intrepid main
deb-src http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu intrepid main
For those of you not running Ubuntu or Fedora, the latest dropbox nautilus source is (as always) available for compilation on your distro of choice here.
