Synergy 3 Alpha (v3.0.62.14)

🔐 This is a closed alpha by special invite. Do not redistribute Synergy 3 Alpha or share this page without permission. It's top secret, we're trusting you, ok? Good.

For Synergy 3, we've completely re-imagined the User Interface and the setup process.

The main goal of this new version is to make it easier to get things going and use Synergy. However, we still want to give more technical users the ability to tinker and adjust every little detail to their liking.

It's been in the works for some time, and we've tested it internally pretty extensively, but it's the first time it gets out of our labs. There are still a lot of features missing and plenty of known issues in this super early alpha version. But we wanted to make sure that Synergy 3 is heading in the right direction, and as there is no one better than our core users to help us, we've invited some of you to test it.

So, please be gentle... but don't hold back on any feedback!

What's new in v3.0.62.14?

To be honest, from the user (your) perspective, not much has changed in this version. We've been mostly improving our infrastructure to cater for some of the changes we want to introduce in the near future.

Changes and new settings:

  • Introduces TLS encryption
  • Renamed the "Fixes" tab to the "Developer" tab in "Computer preference"
  • Added a Developer page at the bottom of the navigation pane
  • In the new developer page is the setting to stop Synergy from taking the foreground on windows (This is the same feature as "Don't take foreground window on windows servers" but reversed)
  • Improved flow for resetting Synergy
  • Fixed issue where multiple computers are marked as the Main (server) computer
  • Removed "1024" as an option for the TLS Key length

Don't worry though, we're already working hard to fix the most common bugs you've been reporting to us. You can expect to see some of the issues that have been bordering you fixed in our next release.

Warning using TLS after upgrade

If you upgrade from the previous version and want to use TLS, please reset Synergy. This is a known issue and the current workaround.
