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 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

As usual you can download this new release from our website.

Syncplify.me Server! v4.0.2 Released!

We have just released version 4.0.2 of our Syncplify.me Server! software. This hot-fix release was necessary to address an issue with some of the upgrades from version 3.x to version 4.0 where – at times – a “path not found” error could appear during the upgrade process.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and recommend anyone that needs to upgrade from version 3.x to download this new hot-fix release.

Syncplify.me Server!: upgrading to version 4.x

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.0+

Syncplify.me Server! v4 is more than just a major release. The software was totally redesigned and nearly entirely rewritten. The back-end database is new, both in structure (JSON) and with regards to the engine (MongoDB). The virtual file system (VFS) implements a true separation of the file transfer engine and the storage. Management is now entirely based on a rich set of REST API, to which we provide 2 front-ends: a modern Boorstrap/AngularJS secure web interface, and a completely redesigned CLI (command-line interface). For all these reasons, in order to upgrade to version 4 and keep your configuration and user database, you will have to carefully follow the procedures explained in this article, and especially in the VIDEO here below.

Syncplify.me Server! v4: new license code format

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.0+

This is a little, yet relevant, difference between Syncplify.me Server! v3 and v4. Version 3’s license codes were composed of 3 chunks of 4 digits each (ex: 1234-1234-1234) while the new v4 features license codes composed of 4 chunks of 4 digits each (ex: 1234-1234-1234-1234).

This means that v3 licenses are not compatible with v4. If you are an existing customer with an active support/maintenance and upgrade protection subscription, you will still need to contact us (before upgrading from v3 to v4) in order to request your new v4 license code. As usual, all v3 customers with an active subscription will be entitled to a FREE upgrade to v4.

Maintenance release: Syncplify.me Server! v3.1.16.56

We have just released version 3.1.16.56 of our Syncplify.me Server!

This new maintenance release fixes a bug in the FileToString function that was erroneously assuming the file encoding was always UTF. Now the file encoding is properly detected before the “read” operation takes place.

As usual you can download the latest version from our web site. Thank you!

Maintenance release: Syncplify.me Server! v3.1.15.55

We have just released version 3.1.15.55 of our Syncplify.me Server!

This new minor update (maintenance release) fixes a bug that affected only Windows Server 2012 and 2012R2 and prevented Syncplify.me Server! from correctly identifying overridden home folders for network user.

As usual you can download the latest version from our web site. Thank you!

Maintenance release: Syncplify.me Server! v3.1.7.47

Today we have released Syncplify.me Server! v3.1.7.47 to fix a tiny bug that on some Windows Server 2012 systems (and only in certain conditions) prevented the user profiles from re-loading the user-specific white list after saving it to the configuration database.

Should you experience issues with saving/reloading some users’ white list, you may want to upgrade to this latest maintenance release.
