Thanks to everyone who let us know that some of the 1.5.4 download links were broken. We’ve fixed the links and fixed a bug too.

- Transition default macOS build to PySide2 and Qt 5.x (PR #185 by albertosottile; resolves #149)

- Future-proofing configuration reading for compatibility with Python 3 version of Syncplay (albertosottile)

Note: This open source software has been marked as clean by Jotti (.exe, .zip, .dmg, legacy .dmg) and VirusTotal (.exe, .zip, .dmg, legacy .dmg). Syncplay might be flagged as suspicious by some anti-malware systems simply because it is niche software downloaded from the Internet but as we are open source anyone can audit our code if they wish to do so.
