Stable Build 3.8.6

A newer build is available.

 

Happy Wednesday! We've got a new release candidate for you in the 3.8 series!

New in 3.8.6:

  • Fixes an issue that could cause crashes on Windows if the CPU does not support SSE2 instructions.

New in the 3.8 series:

  • Windows & OS X: Optional Gmail integration (1)
  • Windows & Linux: Upgrade to Qt 5.4
  • Upgraded compilers (2)
  • Small tweaks to the selective sync UI
  • Show the Dropbox badge on Preview for Mac
  • Initial Windows 10 support

Notes

  1. If you have Chrome installed and use a Gmail address with Dropbox, you'll be able to use the Gmail integration.
  2. Dropbox is being compiled with Visual Studio 2013 on Windows, Xcode 6.3 on OS X, and gcc 4.8.1 on Linux.

Re: Stable Build 3.8.6

Version 3.8.6 chrashes on my Win7-machine, like 3.8.5 did.

Please suspend my account from automatic upgrades immediately, since I cannot use dropbox at all right now!

Thanks

Re: Stable Build 3.8.6

Just posted over on the 3.8.5 Stable Build thread and thought I'd update here as well.

Just installed the 3.8.6 updated version on one of my Win XP Pentium III machines and everything seems to be working fine.  Files synced up without a hitch and the system tray icon is actually responsive again.

I'm going to let it run for a day to see if there are any problems, but so far, everything looks good.

3.8.6 is working on my xp system, nice work!

Re: Stable Build 3.8.6

Hi.

Version 3.8.6 crashes on my Win8.1-machine (AMD FX-7500 Radeon R7 processor), like 3.8.5 did (remains in "connecting" status).

I come back to version 3.6.9 that works fine.

I am still waiting for deactivation of automatic updates, so that I can use an older Dropbox version!

Re: Stable Build 3.8.6

Dropbox v3.8.5 regularly crashed on one my old system too (Athlon XP 2500+, WinXP SP3 32bit).

Dropbox v3.8.6 resolved this problem slightly smiling face Thanks.
