Updates

Changelog Version 4.7.1

Bug Fixes

  • There was a small issue with the annotation app selection which has been fixed. Selecting an app now works again as intended.

Changelog Version 4.7

New Features

  • Screenshot Annotations Beta - Starting with this update, Dropshare will natively support screenshot annotations without switching to a third-party app. With the Dropshare Annotation Tool, you’re able to quickly add text, geometrical forms and blurs to your screenshots, as well as crop them to your desired size.
  • Dropshare Safe is now integrated - Our powerful access-restricting service Dropshare Safe is now directly integrated into the app. While that makes creating access-restricted URLs even easier than before, it also enables Dropshare to remember previously created URLs which now can be retrieved from the context menu at any time.
  • Access statistics right from the popover menu - When using Dropshare Cloud, the access statistics for your uploads will now be displayed right in the popover menu. Now you’re able to see at a glance which of your most recent uploads are accessed the most.
  • Support for Microsoft Azure Blob Storage - Happy to announce that with this update, Dropshare is supporting yet another storage provider: Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. It is a fully-featured supported provider, meaning that also landing pages are supported. Check out our User Guide to learn how to configure set up a Blob Storage connection.
  • Support for DigitalOcean Spaces - Worth to mention, DigitalOcean launched Spaces a few weeks ago. As their API is compliant with Amazon S3, it just works out of the box with Dropshare. In our User Guide we’ve compiled a short article with information on how to set up a Spaces connection.

Improvements

  • Share Extension - The Share Extension has been further improved: It is now possible to share multiple files (and folders!) and once, which will be compressed to a single ZIP file.
  • Screen Recordings - The Screen Recording feature has been updated: Now it automatically is in Record from Selection when started, because we think that is what most of you do. To switch back to Fullscreen Recording, just click anywhere on screen. Also, showing mouse clicks in recordings does now work again.
