13 Jun 2016: The core team of Syncany is on hiatus for an indefinite amount of time. Feel free to do with the code what the license allows and encourages, but please don't expect any maintenance. The team thanks everyone who has contributed to Syncany in one way or another. We might pick up development again, or we might not. Feel free to contact us via e-mail or IRC.
20 Jun 2015: We had a couple of releases since December. In version v0.4.1-alpha & v0.4.2-alpha we added a new 'Preferences' dialog to add/remote plugin and a copy-link feature in the GUI. With version v0.4.3-alpha, we released our first Mac OSX version, added a history browser to the GUI and made plugins updatable. For version v0.4.4-alpha, we rewrote the Syncany API on the website, added 3rd party plugins and update checks for the application and plugins. In version v0.4.5-alpha, we added automatic OAuth token handling, added optional transfer manager features, added a default .syignore file, and much more. In all releases, we also fixes countless bugs! Check out the releases page for more details.
28 Dec 2014: We've reached another milestone. The Syncany core feels more stable by the minute. We released v0.2.0-alpha, v0.3.0-alpha, v0.4.0-alpha, with v0.4.0-alpha being the best release we have ever had. The GUI (tray icon and 'New folder' wizard) works quite well. You can see it in action on our YouTube channel. We also made a couple of new plugins for Flickr (encode data in images, video here), Dropbox, OpenStack Swift and RAID0. Beta is just around the corner!
