AweSync 2.0.0.0

 

Dear AweSync Users! We’re glad to announce the first production release 2.0. As already mentioned in recently published “what’s new“ blog entry, the major change in this release is full support for repeated events with exceptions. Also, in addition to the announced, we have added the configuration wizard for quick setup of product on the first run.

For now we have disabled portable installation option previously announced, as we found some problems with it during testing. For now please refer to our website FAQ section for the information on how to make portable installation of AweSync.

Please note that this download is a 30 days trial. We really hope you’ll enjoy it!

Update to the "Cannot find Google Time Zone" problems

Guys, here is quick update regarding the problem.
We've added the code in current 2.0 version to manage daylight savings, as previously some users had issues with time not synchronized correctly in some circumstances.
Now we've discovered that due to continuous changes in daylight savings in various countries, corresponding patches from Google and from Microsoft are not simultaneous, and even if they are, some users might not have latest operating system hotfixes (please refer to this Microsoft KB article for details).
So, if you can, please install all latest updates for your Windows operating system. It should fix the problems in 90% of cases. And we'll publish update for AweSync soon to handle this in our code as well.
