Re: Stable Build 24.4.16

Hi -- could you please tell me what the actual release date for Dropbox version 24.4.16 is?
 
Under "Preferences", I can see "Dropbox v24.4.16 uses open source software" -- but what is missing is a declaration of the actual release date.  (By the way, the date should be given in a clear, unambiguous format -- please do not give the month merely as a number...it is always best to spell it out, since 04/10/17 could mean April 10 2017 in USA but not in UK. Germany, Australia, Canada, etc.).
 
I have been using Dropbox Pro for some time now, and I am generally very pleased with the uniquely powerful automatic synchronization capabilities that it brings to all my computers.  But unfortunately, Dropbox has not been 100% glitch-free for me.  So, I hope that this 24.4.16 release will solve the problem of Dropbox mysteriously deciding (upon a computer reboot) to re-index all my files (about 200,000 files) and then it says "Uploading 6530 files"...even though none of the files have actually been changed.  I have been incurring high bandwidth-usage fees as a result of this unnecessarily reuploading, and I am eager to see the problem solved definitively and conclusively (especially since it seems to have a history, judging by the dozens of past postings on this topic, on this community forum).

Re: Stable Build 24.4.16

I got it 20170420, was pretty obvious as after auto install it restarted itself and failed

(on OS X 10.9.5 with dropbox dir on a nfs mount, likely what upset it). Now it won't start
