We've just finished testing and have released version 5.98 of Syncdocs.
This is a maintenance release. The main reason for this release is to be compatible with upcoming Google server and security changes. The next major release of Syncdocs (version 6) will be out beta in July. It contains many new features, will be faster and use less memory on 32bit systems.
For those still using a username and password with Syncdocs, you will be forced to upgrade to Google app permissions, as Google is doing away with app passwords. Syncdocs does this automatically, and you can learn more about the upgrade process here.
For users of Windows XP and Vista, you may need to install .NET 4 as Syncdocs has upgraded to this over .NET 3.51. Windows 7 users who have not updated since 2011 might be prompted to download a Microsoft patch. Full details of this are here.
How to Update
The upgrade is free and will happen automatically. The old Syncdocs version should ask if you want to update automatically in the next few days.
To update now, right click on the Syncdocs taskbar icon, go to Preferences -> Advanced -> “Check for Updates”. (Note that the update might not be immediately available if the server load if high.)
You can also download the new version and install it over the old one.
We'll be releasing updated 64bit and portable USB stick version 5.98 in the next few days.
