New Dropbox Update Comes With Retina Support, Notification Center Integration And Redesigned Menus

Last night Dropbox announced the release of their new beta, Dropbox 1.5 for Mac. The update will bring a few new features and UI changes to the popular cloud storage service. Users of the desktop client will discover a redesigned menu system  that combines all the functionality of the older tray menu with a new view of Dropbox’s event stream that allows you to see your latest changes.

The design changes give Dropbox a modern look by using “popovers” that have gained popularity through their implementation by iOS developers. Dropbox’s upgrades gives the UI a more visual approach to displaying changes with files.

Dropbox is also adding Retina support, a new Mac installer and support for Mountain Lion’s Notification Center. The new update is available to Mac OS X 10.6 users and above.

    Dropbox is great. It’s one of the best ways to slow down the performance of your Macintosh computer and make all your files less secure. /s
