Syncplay 1.6.0 (RC1)

Posted by Etoh on September 17, 2018

Syncplay 1.5.6 has been promoted to being called Syncplay 1.6.0 due to the significance of our transition to Python 3.

Change log for Syncplay 1.6.0 (Release Candidate #1):

  • Transition to Python 3, and move Windows builds to PySide2-Qt 5.11.1. (Issue #169 by FSMaxB with input by albertosottile, xNinjaKittyx, and et0h) resolved by PR #191 (by albertosottile with support from xNinjaKittyx, wiiabo and et0h) with fix by PR #200 (alxpettit)
  • The Linux requirements have now changed, so you’ll now need Python 3.4+or newer and either PySide 1.2 or PySide 2-Qt 5.10+. If you wish to figure out precisely which PySide 2 dependencies people will need then let us know! Python 3.5 is required for Windows developers
  • As a result of the transition the newer Unicode characters are now supported on all operating systems (so long as you are on PySide2!). Time to find out some emojis! ????
  • Introduction of anonymous server statistics (#196 by albertosottile, with code review by Uriziel and et0h)
  • Code syntax refactoring (#195 by xNinjaKittyx with code review by albertosottile and et0h)
  • Removed obsolete encode/decode calls (#198 by sometoby)

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.
