Where can i get hold of the experimental versions of Dropbox for Ubuntu?

Im looking for a version that allows the tray icons to be modified, and as far as im aware this functionality is only available in the latest versions.

Thanks.

You can drop last experimental build from Dropbox Forum, here you can find the last version available, 0.8.110.

Simply download your desired tar.gz and extract .dropbox-dist into your Home folder, than copy your desired icons in /home/yourname/.dropbox-dist/icons/hicolor/16x16/status. Be careful to icons name.

Solved:

Thanks to @skalka, ive spotted the difference between the dropbox daemon, and the dropbox-nautilus application that shows up in the package manager.

There is a script on the dropbox forum for an app that will automatically pull the dropbox daemon up the latest version:
