We are delighted to announce the immediate availability of a new Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio Developer Build and to recommend it for use by all Synergy developers. This new release is versioned 11.1.1c-2714, and it can be downloaded from the Synergy Resource Center now.
For the last few development sprints, we decided to focus on addressing quality issues, some reported by customers, and this new release represents the culmination of a lot of hard work on the part of our dedicated developers, testers, and many others.
There are many improvements and enhancements included in this release, but for now, I’ll highlight just two that are of particular importance to customers, and will significantly enhance developer experience and satisfaction overall:
- We resolved an issue with deep dependency checking that would cause files from built dependencies to not get correctly copied to referencing projects. This mostly impacted .NET.
- We resolved an issue that was causing debugger “DataTips” for class fields and properties to not show up.
The release includes many more improvements and enhancements, both in the Visual Studio Integration product, as well as both the Traditional Synergy and Synergy .NET compilers that ship with SDI. For complete information I will refer you to the release notes, you will find a link right next to the download link in the resource center.
If you are already using Visual Studio for your Synergy development then upgrade today, and if not, it’s time to give it a try. The developer experience and productivity in the Visual Studio environment really is second-to-none, and remember, you can always use the runtime version targeting features if you need to produce software that will run with older versions of the Synergy runtime on your customer sites.
