Liferay Sync Release Candidate 1 is now available [Download]! Liferay Sync is an add-on product for Liferay 6.1 CE and EE that enables your users to publish and access documents and files from multiple environments, including Windows and Mac OS Desktops, and iOS-based mobile platforms. You can read more details on its product page.
The initial release earlier this month was a Beta release. Since then, the Liferay team has worked with our internal and external community to fix bugs and add additional improvements, and you can now download the first release candidate! For iOS users, the Beta release is available now, but the usual 7-10 day waiting period means that the RC1 build will be available sometime next week, and your iOS device will be sure to tell you about it via its auto-update feature.
Changes since Beta
Many small items have been fixed in this release candidate. You can browse the full list, but I've highlighted a couple below:
- Igoring Deletes - if you place a
.ignore-deletesfile in the root folder on your local client, then deleting local files has no effect on the server, and the files will not be re-downloaded after a client restart.
- Fixed all known internationalization and filename encoding issues
- Windows and Mac OS X integration cleanup
- General usability and stability improvements
The full GA release will happen in late March or early April, after ferreting out any last minute issues with this release candidate. And for you Android users, I sense a disturbance in the force for you, so stay tuned!
