Among others, a fix for the issue that was unlinking some user from the accounts has been removed, a streaming sync has been implemented, a new over quota “Your Dropbox is full” screen has been added. Also, a feature to disable “Move to Dropbox” from the context menu has been implemented and a scrollable tray popup has been added.
