Dropbox Updates Are Too Manual

This post refers to tuaw.com

Erica Sadun on the latest Dropbox for Mac update:

Dropbox normally uses a silent-but-deadly approach to handle its updates. Basically it installs it automatically for you sometime within a week or so of the new release. But would it kill Dropbox just to give you an alert and let you know that it’s ready? Especially for a big change like restoring the Dropbox submenu in Lion?

I tweeted about this on Friday. I don’t understand why this application can’t auto-update itself, but I am sure that there are many people who go months, if not years without updating Dropbox as a result. I found out a couple of months ago that I was using a version that was at least a 6 months old.

But it’s nice to see the right-click menu is back.
