Syncdocs supports new Office file formats and OAuth
We’re happy to announce a new version of Syncdocs, version 4.1.
Google recently announced that they will be dropping support for exporting older Microsoft Office formats. Syncdocs has been updated to reflect this Google change.
Syncdocs also now supports the Google OAuth 2 protocol. This means that you can authenticate/de-authenticate Syncdocs using the standard Google permissions console.
How to upgrade
As usual your old version should ask if you want to update automatically in the next few days, if you want the fixes now, right click on the Syncdocs taskbar icon, go to Preferences -> Advanced -> “Check for Updates”
You can also download the new version and install it over the old one.
USB Portable versions
