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.
