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.
