    • The network connections used by SimpleSYN can now be configured in the advanced options. In the advanced options it is also possible to activate a user-defined connection, for example to run SimpleSYN on local networks without an internet connection
  • NEW: Improved conflict resolution and conflict detection
    • Faster conflict resolution directly in the conflict list, as well as improvements in conflict detection
  • Improved performance
    Greatly improved performance during in the initial synchronization, as well as in the transmission of multiple elements
  • Improved synchronization
    Improved change detection, improved error handling, and improved detection of different synchronization states
  • Improved support for high resolution displays
    SimpleSYN has been optimized for displays with high DPI
  • Improved synchronization of distribution lists
    Distribution lists with many recipients are better supported
  • Improved selection of folders in the sync settings
    Default folders are now mapped, even if the folder names are different (for example, sent items <> sent objects)
  • Revision of how the filter works (business version)
    If the filter settings for an already synchronized folder change in the future, filtered-out items are not visible anymore for SimpleSYN and are considered a deletion

  • Improved export / import of data
  • Many other improvements and optimizations

  • Fixed an issue: It was possible that a deleted folder was still selected for the synchronization. This lead to error messages
  • Fixed an issue: Changes during the synchronization on the SimpleSYN server were probably not detected immediately, because the folder was not checked for further changes
  • Fixed an issue: The connection could be lost if a synchronizing folder was moved or deleted on the SimpleSYN client
