Maintenance release: Syncplify.me Server! v3.1.12.52

We have just released Syncplify.me Server! v3.1.12.52, a maintenance release that comes with the following improvements and new features:

  • User profile automatic expiration date can now be set via CLI (command-line interface)
  • A tiny memory leak in the logging subsystem has been fixed
  • Send buffer performance improved in critically slow network conditions

In order to set the expiration date using the CLI, you have to pass the date to the -autoexp parameter in RFC959 format (YYYYMMDDHHmmSS, no spaces). Here’s an example that will set the expiation date for a user at noon on Christmas day 2015:

Passing any parameter in a format other than the RFC959 date format specified here above, will disable the automatic expiration of the user profile. The following commands all disable the automatic expiration:
