SimpleSYN Mobile version history

Version 1.0 (Build 9710) released 1/11/2022:
  • Fixes an error while synchronizing calendar data which caused some Android devices to not be able to edit appointments at all.
  • Fixes an error in the association of meeting requests and appointments. This error caused the iPhone or iPad to show the appointment twice.
  • Fixes an error while importing time zone information in meeting requests. Depending on the time zone, meeting requests could not be send. Also fixes an error in time zones without a daylight saving time.
  • After a meeting request was send, the meeting was not correctly flagged as being send.
Version 1.0 (Build 9601) released 12/2/2021:
  • Fixes an error in the inital configuration page. The settings were sometimes not immediately saved which causes the setup of the devices to fail.
  • Enhances the compatibility with more restrictive network environments. A fallback to plain HTTP can now happen if no WebSocket connection to our central servers is available.
  • Some internal errors were not logged correctly, which made diagnosing them difficult.
  • Fixes a crash during the detection of the synchronization status.
  • Fixes a crash while downloading an update.
  • Minor optimizations and fixes.
Version 1.0 (Build 9516) released 11/16/2021:
  • Fixes a bug when synchronizing recurring appointments. If an exception already existed for a new recurring appointment, the import of the item failed.
  • Fixes another bug when synchronizing recurring appointments.
  • Fixes a possible crash if importing a new item failed.
  • Some items were not displayed correctly on the device, if the items did not contain information about the used encoding. This was primarily the case when synchronizing notes.
  • Additional minor fixes and improvements.
Version 1.0 (Build 9428) released 10/28/2021:
  • Fixes an error when adding calendar items. Some time zones were not correctly converted, which lead to unsynchronized items.
Version 1.0 (Build 9411) released 10/12/2021:
  • NEW: Works around an error in Android devices, that forces the existence of all default folders (e.g. Inbox). This workaround simplifies the synchronization of additional PST files that does not contain all default folders.
  • NEW: Exchange server accounts can now be synchronized.
  • NEW: Simplifies the manual connection configuration.
  • Fixes an error when persisting deselected folders in "Configuration". Some times the selection was not saved correctly.
  • Fixes an error when saving new user accounts. New user accounts were sometimes not found by the client device until the main window had been closed.
  • Fixes an error when synchronizing the folder hierarchy of Exchange accounts.
  • Exchange recipients are now displayed correctly in the fields "To", "Cc" and "Bcc".
  • Fixes a silent crash when exiting the app.
  • The setup now checks the availability of the TCP port used by SimpleSYN Mobile.
  • In future, SimpleSYN Mobile will correctly restart when being updated automatically.
Version 1.0 (Build 9328) released 9/28/2021:
  • An error when synchronizing monthly recurring appointments has been resolved. Note: If you have synchronized monthly recurring appointments, they will only be corrected during the next synchronization. You can either change those appointments in Outlook to force a synchronization, or you can remove the SimpleSYN Mobile account on your device and recreate it. This will force a full re-synchronization of every item.
  • There was an error in the setup program, which prevented SimpleSYN Mobile being installed on some Windows language configurations.
  • Activating or deactivating the automatic configuration will now adjust the configured hostname accordingly.
  • Some advanced settings where sometimes not persisted correctly.
  • Additional minor fixes and performance optimizations.
