We’ve just released a new version of Syncdocs. This is a collection of recent bugfixes and small improvements:
Release notes for Syncdocs version 2.22
– Improved handling on non printable characters in file and folder names.
– Fixed a bug to bypass unnecessary deletions and the re-syncs caused by the way certain applications save temporary files. This affects Adobe Illustrator, MYOB, Netbeans and Autodesk users.
– Selective Sync now bypasses Google xml errors for certain collection names, and shows these names, removes duplicates.
– Faster handling of updates to existing files and folders, especially when the user has no permission on Google to commit the update.
– Faster mirroring of Google permissions locally.
– Fixed bug where files with exactly the same name, path and content, but different mime types were seen as the same file.
– Verify Google deletes reported by changes feed.
– Timed or manual sync displayed ‘syncing’ at startup.
– Timed sync or backup displayed right time but wrong date.
– Timed sync or backup would revert to automatic sync on some errors.
– Fixed a bug where locked files were not re-synced once the file was unlocked later.
– Fixed a permissions inheritance mismatch where sub-collections on Google have been set with different permission to parents.
– Fixed error on Wipe Trash older than 7 days where next sync would unnecessarily re-upload files.
– Wipe trash function ignores file not found errors and now wipes trash better.
– Don’t overwhelm user with cryptic “access denied” error messages on Google file locked.
– Google server now adds http redirect for music files on Docs. Partial fix for mp3 playlists generation, playlists not work with all audio players yet, though.
