SmartSynchronize 4 released!

We are delighted to announce the official release of SmartSynchronize 4. First, we want to thank all users who have tested the preview versions and provided valuable feedback. Without you, the progress would not have been possible!

The biggest change in SmartSynchronize¬†4 is the addition of a new dual-pane file manager. After searching for a platform independent, decent dual-pane file manager, we found only very few options that lacked in one or another area significantly. So we decided to write our own one and added it to SmartSynchronize. It focuses on keyboard-centric usage – who remembers the common commander shortcuts using F-keys will feel quickly familiar with SmartSynchronize’ file manager. One nice feature is that it remembers all used paths, so you can access them quickly later by using the Ctrl+P shortcut (Cmd+P on macOS). For simple navigation we integrated the directory navigation using the cursor keys – some users may know this as lynx-like motion. Check out What’s New for a more detailed list of improvements.

SmartSynchronize is a multi-platform file manager with file compare, file merge and directory compare tools. SmartSynchronize runs on 64-bit systems of Windows, macOS and Linux.

SmartSynchronize can be used free of charge for non-commercial purposes (e.g. by OpenSource developers, students, teachers or certain welfare institutions). For commercial use or if support is needed, you can purchase commercial licenses (or for an reduced price as addon to SmartGit or SmartSVN). The commercial licenses include up to 3 years of e-mail support and up to life-long free updates.

SmartGit 19.1 is now compatible with Git-Flow AVH 1.12

For SmartGit 19.1, we have changed the internal Git-Flow implementation to be compatible with Git-Flow-AVH (version 1.12.2), as requested in UserEcho topic #409.

This brings new features, like customizable base branches of features, but also (slightly) alters the behavior of existing functionality. Most of these changes can be switched back to the old behavior by adding the appropriate defaults to  your .git/config . For more details, refer to here.
