In this release we have included the following enhancements and bug fixes:
  • We have enabled the "Box for G Suite" feature in Box. Users who are currently on the beta will now be able to see and open G Suite files directly from Box Drive.  Users on the v1 G Suite integration will also be able to view G Suite files, but will see an error message when attempting to open the files, and will be prompted to enable the v2 integration. Once they have enabled the v2 integration, they will be able to open and work with their files. 
  • Users on Windows will now see Box Drive can be localized in languages supported by Box, but will not see a localized experience for Problem Item notifications, or the first-time user experience.
  • We have fixed a bug that was causing Box Drive to crash if .boxnote files were opened from outside the Box Drive application.
  • Lastly, we have fixed a bug that was causing icons to appear slowly in Offline folders.

The Box Web Application is about to get even better, with a simplified sharing experience that delivers a more consistent and streamlined way to share files and folders. Rather than navigating to multiple places to share content, you'll have a single, central place from which to invite collaborators, generate shared links and manage permissions. More information, including before and after screenshots, about the updates in this release can be found here.
