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 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:

If you are living in Russia and are affected by incorrectly displayed times in, e.g., SmartGit, here comes the solution.
The reason for the incorrect time-zone display is that the Java version shipped with SmartGit does not know about such new time-zone changes (see the chart for time-zone changes and Java versions).
To work-around, please edit
smartgit.vmoptions, add following line (and tweak if necessary)
and restart SmartGit.
