Syncplay 1.6.2

Posted by Etoh on January 16, 2019

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release!

Change log for Syncplay 1.6.2:

  • Update AppVeyor to pypiwin32 and PySide2 5.12.0; use the PySide 5.11 homebrew bottle (albertosottile, resolves #208).
    Note: This should resolve issues on Windows with Syncplay not loading (but you may need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Package) – (Download the 32-bit version, i.e. ‘vc_redist.x86.exe’).
  • Allow for settings variables to be stored in environmental variables (#211 by mordner)
  • Create XDG_CONFIG_HOME with safe permissions (#209 by sometoby)

MacOS user? Thanks to jamebus you can now install Syncplay on macOS via a Homebrew cask:

  • brew cask install syncplay

(Note: If  you want to use Syncplay with Python 2 then you can use Syncplay 1.5.5)

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.
