Dropbox 1.0 has been released

Cloud services are already the next big thing, and this theme is likely to continue well into 2011 as the ability to backup vital data online is becoming a lot more realistic due to advances in broadband speed. Dropbox is possibly the most well known of all the cloud services available and they have announced the latest incarnation of their software. Version 1.0 will include a number of bug fixes, as well a various other performance fixes and a new installation wizard.
Apart from the performance enhancements, and the initial look and feel of the software, we think the Selective and Extended Attribute Sync will provide the key benefits of upgrading.
Selective Sync will be ideal if you have a smaller hard drive and donít fancy syncing your entire Dropbox folder. You also might not want certain files on your home computer to pop up on your work computer. Now with this option you can choose which folders get downloaded to which computers.
Extended Attribute Sync will please users of Macs as syncing resource forks have historically been a pain (resource forks are secret areas of a file that certain applications i.e Quark use to store important data). Most sync programs ignore these forks, which results in a corrupted file. But the latest version of Dropbox combats this problem
