Nothing has changed I'm sure bar the version number hence the lack of release notes.

Dropbox has succumbed to the latest software development fad of throwing out a new version every ten days or so whether it’s justified or not. It’s no longer about quality or making a better product; it’s just a version number race.

 

Dropbox is also following the lead of others in not much caring about what customers think. People would like to know what’s changed in a new release and be able to make an informed decision as to whether or not to upgrade.

 

And of course forced upgrades is another movement in the software industry that Dropbox is happy to embrace. Like it or not, they say, you WILL take our latest rushed out the door product. You will contend with any regression bugs we were in too much of a hurry to properly address. But don’t worry. In another few days, we’ll rush something else out that maybe fixes those bugs – and introduces new ones.

 

The reason Dropbox won’t say what’s changed is because it doesn’t really amount to much, at least usually. Some of the updates create new and desired functionality, but too many of them are just fluff to get ahead. God forbid that another company have a higher version number.
