When does Synergy 2.1 release?

17 posts in this topic

I bought Synergy thinking everything would work like I'd like it to, much like sharemouse.  At this time all the features I want are in supposed to be coming in 2.1.  Is there a release date for 2.1?

 

Thanks.

I also bought synergy because of the features. When will version 2.1 be released?

I am also curious. 2.0 was released back in November. I keep watching, but haven't seen much for development news.

Also semi-patiently waiting for Synergy 2.1.  What about it, Nick?  Any projected date for release yet?

In a support ticket, when I asked about downgrade to Synergy 1 (current version - 2.0.5 did not satisfy me), It was also mentioned that Synergy 2.1 is "due in Q3 of 2018"

This is really poor! I have not used Synergy for a long time until just now. The biggest issue is that the second PC does not tunr off the display yet alone lock itself! This is HUGE issue and I I simply cannot use Synergy 2 at all!

Extremely sloppy and poor development to release it in this state IMHO!

Gah, Q3 2018?  I guess I'll be downgrading to 1.x, also.

Is this really Q3? Can we get some official word on this?  The only reason I bought this software was to replace share mouse, if it's going to take that long I might as well have bought that. I thought it was coming Q1 Februaryish per last reports.  I don't understand how 2.0 can have so many fewer features than V 1.0?

Thats what I got in a support ticket when I wanted to downgrade, that feels official to me:

Really? July ~ September? Is their dev team coding with hammers and chisels?

But seriously, I look forward to the new release.

I hope they release a beta 2.1 for feedback before they push out the final. It will be upsetting if they release another "user friendly" release.

It would be nice if you could still buy 1.9 if you have a situation where 2.0 is completely non-functional (ie. behind a proxy), especially since proxy support has disappeared from their roadmap.

I bought 2.0 because 1.8.8 worked pretty well.

I see 2.1 will still require phoning Synergy home every time it's launched.

Still broken, even before being released.

It's on the roadmap: https://symless.com/synergy/roadmap

Don't worry. It is a high priority.

Sadly, Jerry is leaving (we'll miss you @Jerry Hou), so this will set Synergy 2.1 back a few months while we find his replacement.

:/ sorry to hear. I just read the blog post. It looks like Jerry is a key player in the Version 1 Synergy that got us all hooked, 'back in the day.' Therefore, this is a long-delayed THANK YOU from one of your fans! Well wishes as you continue your career here in 'the new world.'

Onward, through the fog!
