A new flavor of Dropbox for BlackBerry is now available for those who use this mobile client to access their accounts, namely version 18.104.22.168. According to Dropbox, this is an official release for the application, and was made available for all users out there.
However, we should note that the new version of the app follows the availability of a series of beta version of the software, which were meant mainly for testing purposes.
The release notes of the new Dropbox for BlackBerry 22.214.171.124 would include:
- saving non-ascii texts results in garbled text
- handling of edge cases when running out of space on sd card and in device memory
- open-edit-upload usecase wasn't working for devices with encryption enabled
- share link freezes for some users
- open-edit-upload usecase fails for files with non-ascii filenames
- 'would you like to allow logging' dialog shouldn't appear on first launch
- on rotatable devices, in image gallery, the displayed/cached image is smaller than screen size (shouldn't happen)
- music/video stops when screen fades out
- user gets a 'not enough room to write file' message when trying to open a file that's already open in docs2go
- uploading file changes for file stored in folder with non-ASCII characters can result in creation of damaged folder name with contents of a new file
According to Dropbox, the new flavor of the software comes with other enhancements as well, including the fact that the app should ask for permissions in advance on first launch, or that it should offer support for multiple third-party app associations for a given file type (such as multiple pdf viewers).
The app also resolves a series of BES permissions problems, and is also said to come with fixes or chronic upload retry issues, as well as some related UI glitches.
Some of the other fixes in the new release would include user interface rotation glitches on some screens, as well as file browser lagginess when dealing with non-ASCII characters in file names.
The new Dropbox for BlackBerry 126.96.36.199 is said to be the first official update for the application since the September release, thus the large number of changes it was packed inside with.
