ArraySync 1.0.3 and ArraySync Client 1.0.3 are now available for web download customers, and will be in the Mac App Store pending Apple’s approval.
Work is definitely progressing towards the big 1.1 release, but this update was important enough to push through on its own. Version 1.0.3 brings a huge improvement to ArraySync’s internal synchronization algorithm. Users should now see much more fluid and reliable syncing between server and clients, and also improved performance on systems with more than one display.
Have you been to Info-Mac lately? I’ve just been finishing up a total redesign of the venerable online Mac user community, and I think you’ll agree it looks fantastic.
The old style was quite a mess of nested tables, old-style image-based everything, and inefficient navigation. Now, everything is streamlined making use of the latest HTML5 and CSS3 has to offer. And navigation has never been easier – instant access to virtually anywhere on the massive website with just a click of the mouse.
So stop by, have a look around, and sign up if you haven’t already.
Mac App Store customers are unfortunately subject to a time delay as updates are pushed through Apple’s approval process. ArraySync and ArraySync Client 1.0.2 are now available on the Mac App Store (or will be within minutes of this post). Thanks for your patience and sorry for the delay! We have no control over this.
Apologies for the slow and/or unresponsiveness of NaSoLab web services today. Our host, DreamHost, seems to be suffering an apocalyptic hardware meltdown that is affecting tens of thousands of websites across the interwebs.
Hopefully this will be cleared up soon.
Just posted an update to ArraySync and ArraySync Client. Version 1.0.2 fixes a bug that caused ArraySync to crash if a preset file was opened that linked to a video file that no longer exists (moved or deleted). Now such links are simply ignored.
I discovered this bug while working on version 1.1 (not quite ready yet) and thought it best to release a bugfix update right away. The web download versions are available now. Mac App Store customers will have to wait for Apple’s approval.
Also, new toolbar icons!
As always, let us know if you experience any problems with the update!
I’m happy to announce NaSoLab Direct is now live and, based on my preliminary testing, seems to work well. NaSoLab Direct allows you to manage various features of your ArraySync license, such as serial retrieval, activation counter reset, create sublicenses, and remote activation.
I’ve uploaded a new copy of ArraySync Client for Windows that fixes a problem experienced by some users installing it on a machine for the first time. It’s still version 1.0.1, there was just a resource left out of the package that went unnoticed by users with existing installations. Visit the ArraySync homepage to get it.
We’ve gotten a ton of feedback from ArraySync early adopters, including many great suggestions for future updates to ArraySync. Some of them had already been planned, while others we hadn’t even thought of. Here’s a tentative list of what’s in the works for ArraySync 1.1, a massive update due out in March.
Based on a customer suggestion, I’ve written and uploaded a little app that you can use to activate ArraySync server on a computer that does not have an internet connection. This may be a server running on a rental unit at a conference center or other venue where an Internet connection is unavailable, or running on a closed network intentionally disconnected from the Internet.
Simply install Remote Activator along with ArraySync, then visit ra.nasolab.com on your smartphone or other web-connected mobile device, enter your activation credentials, and submit. You’ll receive a special 10-code unlock key unique to your machine. Type this into Remote Activator and you’ll be ready to go!
You can find Remote Activator on the ArraySync homepage.
Apple has finally approved ArraySync for sale in the Mac App Store. Both ArraySync (server) and ArraySync Client can be purchased/downloaded from Apple’s online software store for Macs. They’ll be able to talk to standard web-downloaded versions of ArraySync too. It only took Apple three weeks but it felt like forever.
If the Mac App Store is your cup of tea, this might be a good option for you.
