Next-Generation Sync Now Available as Public Beta

June 14, 2016 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

It’s no secret that we have been working for quite some time on a new sync technology (code name: “DEVONcloudy”, our little cloud). It replaces the Mac-to-Mac sync presently part of DEVONthink for Mac and will be the foundation of the upcoming DEVONthink To Go 2.0.

The new sync uses direct network connections, WebDAV, or Dropbox to keep DEVONthink databases in sync between multiple Macs (and soon iOS devices). Exclusively on the Mac it can also use local sync stores, e.g. on file servers, and iCloud Drive. Apple’s implementation here makes it extremely hard to use for sync on iOS.

Today we are releasing the first beta of our new sync as a public beta. It’s feature-complete and has been tested extensively in our labs and by our closed beta tester community. But before we make it part of the official release we want to see it running smoothly on a larger scale.

In the meantime we’ll fix the remaining issues in DEVONthink To Go 2.0 before we’re going to prepare it for the App Store.
