  • New Version 6.0 released 12/5/2022

    • Improved: Easier selection of default folders in sync settings. The default folders are now automatically mapped to each other. This applies, for example, to folders with the addition "(only this computer)".

    • Improved: After saving the synchronization settings, the synchronization will start faster.
    • Improved: Renamed the executable files to "SimpleSYN.Desktop.exe" and "SimpleSYN.Desktop.Service.exe".
    • Improved: Only show compatible SimpleSYN servers found on the local network.
    • Fixed: If an item could not be imported, an invalid entry occurred in the state database and the item was no longer synchronized.
    • Fixed: If conflicts were resolved differently and therefore not being synchronized, it was necessary to reset the conflict on both sides.
    • Fixed: Fixes an display error for conflicts. The wrong time was used to calculate the conflict state ("newer/older").
    • Fixed: Displaying an item during conflict resolution may have failed with a "item not found" error.
    • Fixed: The notification icon was sometimes not updated, if the Windows explorer hang for a short period.
    • Fixed: Fixes translations in the Outlook Add-In.
    • Fixed: The "Restore deleted objects" dialog of the Outlook Add-In was sometimes not correctly refreshed.

    • Fixed: The sort order of the items in the duplicate finder was sometimes incorrect if items had the same subject.
    • Fixed: Displaying contacts in the duplicate finder has been fixed.
    • Fixed: The SimpleSYN client sometimes displays an incorrect message "Server paused".
    • Fixed:The progress bar in the status dialog always went backwards a little bit.
    • Fixed: In Outlook closed data files were not correctly released by SimpleSYN. This caused the files to be in use until SimpleSYN was restarted.
    • Other: Many more minor fixes and optimizations.
    • Removed: The manual synchronization from within the Outlook Add-In has been removed, because this functionality was in use very rarely.
    • Removed: The flyout window opening with a single click on the notification icon has been removed.

  • Version 5.0 (Build 12711) released 7/12/2019:
    • Improves error handling for custom Outlook data fields that cannot be resolved. As a result, synchronization may have stopped and continued incorrectly.
    • Resolves an issue if the synchronization state on the server has been deleted. If only a few items were synchronized once, the client did not recognize the required resynchronization and the synchronization was performed incorrectly.
    • NEW: Improved initial synchronization between different versions of Outlook. For example, different separators in messages, or incorrectly formatted links, are handled better, eliminating duplicates during initial synchronization.
    • NEW: After SimpleSYN starts, the folder hierarchy is always transferred once to synchronize changes to it more quickly.
    • NEW: Subject line prefixes are now transferred separately to correctly represent custom values. Custom prefixes also could have lead to duplicates when a resynchronization takes place.
