Dropbox has announced the release of Dropbox 1.0 bringing Selective Sync (choose which folders get downloaded to which computers) and Extended Attribute Sync (improved support for Mac apps like Quicken and Quark whose resource forks bedevil most sync applications and corrupt data in the process).

The size of the application has been reduced significantly, and it uses fewer system resources to operate. Dropbox also redesigned the appearance of the desktop clients, has enabled selective syncing, and added support for more file types. The software is free to download and use.
