I got intrigued about the 2.6.0 beta (actually a release candidate --- the betas are odd numbered minor version, e.g., 2.5.x) and installed it. At first glance there appears to be no noticeable difference from 2.4.10 when you click on the Menu Bar Icon (what appears is the what they must mean when they talk about the ``tray popup'') but, if you hover over the `up to date' check mark it changes into `Pause syncing' with a Pause icon. I guess that saves one step.
