Dropbox has finally dropped the “Beta” tag and released version 1.0! The new version comes with hundreds of bug fixes. Dropbox is a Web-based file hosting service  that uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization.

In comparison to similar services, Dropbox offers a relatively large number of user clients across a variety of desktop and mobile operating systems. There are a total of 10 clients, including versions for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, as well as versions for mobile devices, such as Android, iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry, and a web-based client for when no local client is installed. Dropbox uses the “Freemium” financial model and its free service provides 2 GB of free online storage.

Since the beta tag drop, Dropbox also adds TrueCrypt support, a Rainbow Shell that offers support for extended attributes, selective sync, a new installation wizard, and reduces resource usage. There are both free and paid services, each with varying options.

Here is a more complete rundown of the new features and a link to download your own.
