Thanks for using Dropbox! Here are the user-visible changes in v89:

  • Updated text on Mac OS 10.15 Catalina consent dialog to increase clarity that Desktop directory access is required for screenshot upload feature. 
  • Fixed an accessibility issue so voice over now declares the correct number of rows for the member list in the sharing modal.
  • Linux 32-bit releases are now cross-compiled on 64-bit Linux

Does this fix the perpetual "Syncing..." problem with version 88.4.172?

Since the sync delay is due to what appears to be a TOTAL REINDEX for a new SQL engine you can expect its going to be in this version as well, even if they reversed the SQL engine back to the old method, then that one woiuld have to reindex as well so your still stuck.

Im as FRACKED OFF as can be, it takes  days / weeks for a reindex to complete on our data as we have 2TB+ in 600K+ files.

Any educated developers would know to migrate the database, but DB , Oh no lets just do a rebuild, who gives a stuff if it doesnt sync for days I mean our customers can lump it we are the gods of self amazement and the light shining from us well show the way.

Priase the D & the B for all sync shall come to those who wait for the weeks of reindex to pass, and the stale data shall be theirs for the taking.... SHOOT ME NOW!

still endlessly 'Syncing...', still thrashing the drive at 100%. Zero indication of what's actually happening. This is pathetic.

No, I can say it doesn't. I have a ticket opened with Support (for the previous version v88.4.172), and I've updated it to say that this version hasn't fixed the issue either.

Installing version 89.4.278 has not solved the "Syncing..." problem on Windows 10.

EDIT 2 Feb 2020: Uninstalling Boxifier solved my syncing issue. (It's not enough to exit Boxifier.)

This notice is about how we create builds when releasing them, not about running them.

Previously, we would use a 32-bit machine to compile the 32-bit Dropbox application.

Now we use a 64-bit  machine to compile the 32-bit Dropbox application.

There should be no regressions in functionality due to this, but, since the overall population of 32-bit users is small, we are unable to test every feature. This is a heads up so that users can tell us if they notice any problems.

Here is some more information about cross-compiling - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/897289/what-is-cross-compilation.

What are stable and beta builds?

The stable builds are for the Desktop client, which is regularly updated with many improvements and fixes.

A beta build is an early release feature that is subject to these additional terms.
