Software Update: Sync Thing 0.14.0




0:14 version of Sync Thing was released. Sync Thing is an open source program that allows files to be synchronized between two computers. This happens just like BitTorrent Sync without a central server in between, as is the case with storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and iCloud. The software is among others available for Windows, Linux, OS X and Android. There are also packages for Synology and Qnap. 0:14 version includes a new extensible sync protocol and is therefore not compatible with the previous version.

Thing Sync version 0.14.0

This is a new major release, incompatible with Sync Thing v0.13 and earlier. This release introduces a new, extensible sync protocol and correspondance thing changes to local discovery and the database. A full rehashing or directory contents will happen on first restart. To rollback to a v0.13 release, simply download and run a Sync v0.13 Thing.

Resolved issues since v0.13.10:
# 3397 : The Anonymous Usage Reporting Preview is now correctly formatted
# 3346 : Discovery results now respects address family for listen addresses.
# 3080 : The sync protocol, local discovery protocol and database format is now based on protocol buffers.
# 3227 : File names ending in space are now correctly marked as invalid on Windows.
# 3278 : Local discovery now quickly Detects other local devices on restart.
# 3077 : A race condition causing a deadlock on flyers Addition is fixed.
