After my update on March 20, here’s another update on our sync plugin. We spent the last few weeks testing and fixing all the found issues. This leaves us for the public beta 1 with only minor issues left: a few memory leaks are annoying but harmless, the Dropbox and WebDAV syncs still spend too much time checking the state of the remote sync store (but work very efficiently otherwise), and a couple of user interface changes we would like to do.
So, what’s the plan then? We will spend the coming days with fixing the memory leaks and working on the other planned improvements. But all this does not affect the actual core functionality of the plugin, so we have scheduled the release of public beta 1 for Monday, June 11, 2012.
And what’s next? After the first public beta we will collect the feedback and begin to fix potentially existing bugs, implement the speed improvements we have in mind, and make the UI prettier. We plan to publish one or multiple public betas and then the final update to DEVONthink that includes sync as built-in feature.
