Create Synchronicity on Linux

Hi all,

Experimental Linux builds are available from the latest builds page, .

Please keep in mind that this in only an alpha version: although the core syncing code is working well, the UI is still extremely unpolished, and still requires some work to integrate with the Linux desktop.

Create Synchronicity, now v5.0

Dear Create Synchronicity users,

(To all new subscribers who heard of Create Synchronicity by reading the Lifehacker article a month ago: Welcome aboard!)

It’s my great pleasure to announce today the release of Create Synchronicity, version 5.0, available at . This update is focused on making your use of Create Synchronicity more intuitive and easy, by fixing many discreet yet annoying bugs, and by introducing new time-savers, such as path suggestion in the settings dialog, and double-click support in the preview window. We’re also welcoming three new translations, to Russian, Czech, and Hebrew, along with a fully localized installer. System administrators may like the new “/silent” switch that I introduced, as well as the new app-logging feature. The command-line bug that many of you encountered was fixed, and new options were introduced. Check out the full release notes at for more!... read more

Create Synchronicity 4.2 is out!

Dear Create Synchronicity users,

It hasn’t been long since the last update, but a few annoying, although benign, bugs had slipped in the last release of Create Synchronicity (version 4.1). This new release, 4.2, is therefore mostly targeted at fixing bugs and simplifying the existing code.

I’m glad to say that this has permitted for many improvements in the code, resulting in a more responsive interface, a better scheduler, and prettier log files. As a side note, some of you may have had trouble with log files (these were the main reason for the 4.2 release). Yet no release would be worth it if it wasn’t for at least a few new functionalities, and this one makes scheduling much simpler. When you change scheduling settings for a profile, the scheduler immediately catches up and updates its own settings to mirror your change. No need to reboot (or restart the scheduler) anymore =) There have been improvements also in the debugging engine, including an application-level events logger.... read more

Create Synchronicity 4.1

Dear Create Synchronicity users,

I’m happy and proud to announce today the immediate availability of Create Synchronicity, version 4.1, which can be downloaded at . Although not as spectacular in terms of new functionalities than previous releases, this update brings a lot of minor improvements to the UI, installer, and marks the beginning of a large optimization work, to achieve ever- higher synchronization speeds (Good news: On Windows 7, copying files with Create Synchronicity is now faster than copying them using the default Windows copy handler). More of course in the release notes, at . If you were to encounter any bugs, please report them at .... read more

Name-based drive selection

Hello everyone!

I've just finished implementing a feature that I had been willing to include for a long time, aka name-base drive selection. When I plug in my mp3 player, it usually gets assigned to a random drive letter, meaning that I keep having to update my configuration. Well it's not so anymore. With the new features that I just finished designing, such paths as "MP3Player"\Music\Artists are now perfectly valid ; and Create Synchronicity will automatically detect the right drive letter.
