A new preview release for the upcoming SmartSynchronize 4 is available.
The dual-pane file manager has further been improved allowing us to use it on a daily base (instead of our old license of a discontinued one).
SmartSynchronize 3.5 has been released. It comes with improved compare results especially for natural languages with wrapped lines. By default, SmartSynchronize 3.5 requires a 64-bit system but can be launched on 32-bit systems with tiny changes.
All commercial licenses that work with SmartSynchronize 3.4 continue to work with 3.5.
If you are using a recent KDE version, e.g. with openSuSE Leap 42.2, you will notice that some toolbar buttons don’t show a selected (or toggled) state.
You can fix (or work-around) it, by opening the System Settings and selecting “Application Style” in the “Appearance” section. On the tab “GNOME Application Style (GTK)” you can find the options for selecting GTK themes:
If you select, e.g. “Adwaita”, and click “Apply”, SmartGit’s toolbar buttons will show their selected (or toggled) state:
SmartGit, SmartSVN and SmartSynchronize show a black area right beside the last column in the header area.
It is following bug in SWT
and we don’t know of a work-around for now.
We would like to encourage you to vote for this bug at bugs.eclipse.org, so it will get the necessary priority.
Though the SWT team has fixed it, Microsoft also released a fix for Windows 10 which solved this problem.
SmartGit, SmartSVN, SmartSynchronize and a lot of other Java-based (GUI) applications, e.g. Eclipse, hang on OS X 10.11 beta 3 / public beta 1 (El Capitan). They worked on previous OS X 10.11 beta versions.
It is discussed in following thread forums.developer.apple.com/thread/8776.
We will see whether Apple fixes it in a new beta version.
Update on July 27th 2015
The problem has been fixed by Apple with the release of OS X 10.11 public beta 2.
If you try to launch SmartGit and see a “Couldn’t load main class.” error, be sure to check the TEMP and TMP environment variables. They should point to a directory where the current user has write access (references).
If SmartGit, SmartSVN or SmartSynchronize crashes for you on dialogs where (on other platforms) comboboxes are visible, please check whether the oxygen-gtk style is selected. It is reported to be extremely buggy and better should be replaced with either Adwaita or Clearlooks-Phenix:
