ObjectName and VirtualObjectName deprecated in V5

Syncplify.me Server! version: 5.0.0+

Starting from version 5.0 of Syncplify.me Server! the ObjectName and VirtualObjectName variables (scripting engine and event-handling subsystem) will be deprecated.

They are still available, but they will be removed in future versions, so we do recommend to update all scripts that may be using such variables and make sure you use the new ones:

Session.ObjectName: substitutes ObjectName
Session.VirtualObjectName: substitutes VirtualObjectName

There are also two new similar values that will normally be empty, but may contain a string value only when responding to client commands like COPY, MOVE or RENAME. Such variables are:

Session.ObjectName2: contains the destination file name, relative to the local file system, for the object to be copied to, moved to, or renamed to (example: C:\SFTPData\NewFileName.txt)
Session.VirtualObjectName2: contains the destination file name, in POSIX-compliant format, for the object to be copied to, moved to, or renamed to (example: /SomeFolder/NewFileName.txt)

Syncplify.me Server! v5.0 new pricing scheme

As previously mentioned, with the release of version 5.0 of Syncplify.me Server! our prices will change.

The price increase is justified by the vast range of new features developed for the new version, as well as by the fact that our prices have always been much lower than competing solutions with a comparable feature set.

The table below summarizes said changes:

Edition

Basic


Professional


Ultimate

V4.x

$199


$399


$749

V5.x

$299


$499


$849

All current customers who own a license for version 4.x of the software, and are current with their support subscription, will receive this major upgrade for free. Therefore, we urge all customers who are planning on upgrading to v5.0 upon release to make sure their support subscription is valid and active.

Thank you.

What’s new in the upcoming Syncplify.me Server! v5

Syncplify.me Server! version: 5.0.0+

While the step from v3 to v4 was somewhat “epic” (as 80%+ of the code was rewritten from scratch) the upcoming Syncplify.me Server! v5 will, instead, build upon the rock-solid foundation of v4 and expand and improve its features significantly. Version 5 will also be our most cloud-enabled version to date.

Here’s a list of some of the most important upcoming new features our users will find in Syncplify.me Server! v5: Continue reading

No, we’re not vulnerable to the libssh attack CVE-2018-10933

Many of our customers these days have sent us emails asking our team if Syncplify software products are affected by the libssh vulnerability documented in CVE-2018-10933.

Good news: none of our software products is vulnerable.

As mentioned in previous articles in this knowledge base, our products are not based on 3rd party open source libraries and solutions (like OpenSSL, OpenSSH, libssh, …) therefore our software does not inherit their bugs.

Regarding the upcoming version 5

We, the Syncplfy team, have been asked by few customers and prospect customers about the upcoming version 5 of Syncplify.me Server! the release date for the last few months now. We know the release date keeps being postponed due to several reasons, some that were out of our hands. Syncplify’s goal and us, behind it, is to provide the most reliable and secure product to you. That’s one reason why we keep delaying the release of the new version. We run and re-run multiple tests and sessions to ensure the product satisfies us, then to relay the satisfaction to you. Although we understand some might be upset by the fact of “unfulfilled expectations”, we focus on long-term satisfaction and security. Thus, the Syncplify team asks you, our dear customers, to accept our apologies and continue to support us.

Thank you and sincerely yours,

Syncplify team
