fruux v0.7 rollout

We are happy that our fruux v0.7 rollout went quite smoothly. However we're still not entirely satisfied, because some of you are affected by bugs. There are currently three known issues with iCal syncing:

  • if you heavily use recurring events, your sync might break (we're working on this one)
  • Obviously some of our users from russia are affected by an encoding bug (we're working on this one)
  • Some users have problems with duplication and repeating sync conflicts (so far all of them used other sync systems in addition to fruux, we're working on this one, too)

Only very few users are struck by those bugs, but still we are extremely sorry for any inconvenience caused! Please keep in mind that fruux is still in beta. We're working really hard fixing those bugs as fast as possible. If you are affected by bugs or need help, please get in touch with us!

If you email directly to our support emailaddress, please include the file ~/Library/Application Support/Fruux/Sync.log). Some of our users already work with our addressbook syncing in productive enviroments.

If you need addressbook syncing e.g. in your office and there is no way you could wait for our bugfix release, please contact us. We might be able to offer you a customized version of fruux, which just syncs your addressbook. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems concerning fruux!

Thank you for your support.
