The synchronizer and container document Rename, Delete, and Duplicate now produce more meaningful error messages if those operations fail.
Fixed a bug whereby the "Duplicate" function was not properly duplicating container documents. Several items of metadata were not properly preserved.
Fixed a bug whereby the Document Organizer could fail to display on launch under certain scenarios.
Fixed a bug that would not re-display the Document Organizer if you opened a document that required a password to access and clicked "Cancel" from the prompt.
Fixed a bug that would not re-display the Document Organizer if you opened a document and received the "Document in Use" error message.
Fixed a bug that could cause a crash if a newly created synchronizer or container document were closed before it was fully displayed.
Implemented a custom configuration option (via plist settings) to return to creating "Untitled" synchronizer documents on application launch & activation.
Fixed an animation glitch that occurred when switching to bootable, local agent connection in a single step.
Fixed some bugs that could cause a hang or crash when selecting targets.
Fixed a cosmetic glitch whereby the deletion and readiness boxes were not animating properly on 10.9+.
Fixed a cosmetic glitch whereby the background of the detailed readiness message text view was being displayed in a subtle shade of grey.
Fixed a bug whereby bootable options for remote agents would be disabled if connection to the local agent could not be established for some reason.
Fixed a bug whereby collapsing a multi-level branch of files in the Analyze or Archive panel could result in the user interface for that document becoming unresponsive.
Fixed a bug whereby user and group names on a remote agent connection were not being properly displayed in the Analyze panel.
Fixed a bug whereby the "Last Synchronized" column in the Analyze panel was not updating in real time and could continue to show an erroneous value until a refresh was forced.
Fixed a bug whereby extended timeout values for local agent connects were not being established on initial connection attempts.
Implemented more efficient collection of file metadata such as as extended attributes and ACLs.
Fixed a bug whereby changes to a file's extended attributes were not always correctly detected when the EA sync trigger was enabled.
The file synchronization engine will now only force copying new files to a temporary file name on file server connections.
Added better fall-back logic for situations where some file systems produce errors when certain file access permissions are requested.
Fixed a bug in the "Verify Data" function that was not properly bypassing device caches.
The file copying logic now iterates file forks more efficiently.
Added the option to control file copying cache behavior via plist settings.
Eliminated some inefficiencies in the copy engine that were carry-overs from very early versions of the application.
Updated the volume blacklist for bootable targets and auto-exclusion.
Fixed some bugs in the diagnostic auditing mechanism.
Changed the terminology displayed in the user interface when selecting a custom location for the "Synchronizer Documents" folder.
Added workaround logic that should prevent various progress sheet windows from failing to show progress on certain systems.
Added logic to prevent accidental deletion of files when running the installer on 10.6 systems after a very specific (and obscure) sequence of events.
Synchronize files between folders, hard drives, removable media, laptops, file servers, or any computer, not just a Mac. Features include:
• Fully customizable toolbar.
• All synchronization settings are stored in separate, self-contained, double-click- able documents that can be run or modified at any time.
• Synchronize files in any direction or bi-directionally.
• Establish simple, intermediate, or advanced rules to include or exclude files by name, size, date, extension, plus other more advanced options.
• Compare files before and after synchronizations to see the status of every file.
• Run trial synchronizations to check results before committing.
• Special options that ignore invisible files, resolve alias, preserve folder attributes and synchronize deletions.
• A complete transaction log maintains a complete history of all synchronizations run with options for exporting and printing.
• Automate synchronization with a full-featured scheduler.
• Schedule synchronizations to occur at launch, termination, once, or any repetitive time frame desired.
• Launch ChronoSync at system startup and have it run in the background.
• Use AppleScripts to automate the process even further.
