NEW: Filters are now also applied to sub folders (Business Edition only).
NEW: Automatic error reporting.
NEW: New state database technology.
NEW: New function for selecting folders in sync settings. All subfolders of a data file can be selected at once via the context menu.
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: The service functionality does not require the Windows password anymore, if all data files are stored locally (Business Edition only).
Improved: Improved connection establishment during network changes or when an Internet connection becomes available.
Improved: Improved notifications.
Improved: Improved selection of the SimpleSYN Server.
Improved: Improvements in the Outlook Add-In:
Supports Office UI themes.
Revised "Recover Deleted Items" dialog.
The duplicate finder can now be used in "Deleted Objects" folder.
The Outlook Add-In now also supports SimpleSYN Mobile.
Improved: The SimpleSYN client will always display its connection status, even if no synchronization takes place.
Improved: Backed up items are now automatically removed after 30 days by default.
Improved: It is no longer possible to assign different folder types to each other in the synchronization settings.
Improved: Improved log functionality.
Improved: Improved Outlook version detection, e.g. Outlook 20219/2021 are now correctly displayed.
Improved: Improves filtering of recurring appointments (Business Edition only).
Improved: Improved performance of the status dialog.
Improved: Improved connectivity on systems with many network connections.
Improved: Very large folder hierarchies are now not loaded at once, which allows to select the folders faster.
Improved: Improved performance for the duplicate finder.
Improved: If an folder needs to be resynchronized, it will do so immediately.
Improved: Unsynchronizable folders are not shown in the synchronization settings anymore.
Improved: While selecting a target folder for the synchronization, unavailable folders are not shown anymore.
Improved: The synchronization will start immediately after resolving a conflict.
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: Automatically emptying the backup folder could sometimes cause sending read-reports.
Fixed: The sort order of the items in the duplicate finder was incorrect if an item had no subject.
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 16703) released 11/3/2022:
The duplicate finder sometimes marks different items as duplicates.
Minor fixes and optimizations.
Version 5.0 (Build 15212) released 8/13/2021:
Due to a changed digital signature of the .NET Framework, the setup failed in case .NET was not previously installed on the target machine. The digital signature has been updated.
Fixes an connection error when using proxy servers.
Fixes an error while searching SimpleSYN updates.
Fixes an crash of the user interface.
Updated Microsoft VC++ Runtime Version 14.1.
Version 5.0 (Build 14523) released 6/22/2021:
Fixes a very rare error when saving the configuration that causes SimpleSYN to stop working.
Fixes a rare crash when showing the pending synchronization state.
Version 5.0 (Build 13315) released 1/15/2020:
Resolves a possible crash if file system permissions in Windows folders differ from the default settings.
Version 5.0 (Build 13126) released 11/26/2019:
Fixes an incorrect notification of unresolved conflicts, even if there is no need to resolve conflicts.
Fixes an error while loading the folder hierarchy, if sub folders are not supported.
The fix-up of distribution lists/contact groups will now make sure the selected contact is unique.
Fixes an error that caused the client to show "online", but no synchronization takes place.
Other optimizations and bug fixes.
Version 5.0 (Build 12823) released 8/26/2019:
Fixes an error in the folder hierarchy synchronization. If Outlook returned an internal error while opening a folder, it was possible that SimpleSYN deleted this folder accidentally instead of stopping the synchronization.
Version 5.0 (Build 12812) released 8/15/2019:
Fixes a crash when Outlook is returning an unexpected error.
Version 5.0 (Build 12806) released 8/7/2019:
NEW: Improves the performance when starting SimpleSYN.
NEW: Improves the mapping of items during initial synchronization.
Resolves a possible crash due to errors in third-party MAPI datastores.
Resolves a very rare connection problem that could cause SimpleSYN to hang with 100% CPU usage.
Smaller bug fixes and tweaks.
Version 5.0 (Build 12711) released 7/12/2019:
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.
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.
