We are pleased to announce that the first Long-Term Support (LTS) release of Synergy/DE is now available. The release, version 126.96.36.19978, is available for all supported platforms and is ready for download from the Synergex Resource Center. We encourage all Synergy developers to update to this version to take advantage of the new features and improvements it contains.
The most significant changes in this release are
- Support for Microsoft .NET 6 in addition to .NET Framework.
- Support for Microsoft Secure Channel (Schannel) instead of OpenSSL for encryption on Windows.
- Validation of cryptographic certificates for authenticity, revocation, and expiration.
- Support for Linux license forwarding, which makes it possible for Linux systems to obtain licenses from a Synergy license server on a Windows system.
For more detailed information, please refer to the announcements of the two feature releases that preceded this LTS release, Synergy 188.8.131.5272 (September 2021) and Synergy 184.108.40.20675 (February 2022).
If you use encryption anywhere in Synergy, we encourage you to read about the encryption changes before upgrading. See the recent article Encryption Changes in Synergy 12.
As always, the release also contains miscellaneous enhancements and quality improvements throughout the Synergy/DE product set. For a complete list of changes, please refer to the release notes.
And, finally, note that we recently released a new version of Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio. You can find more details by reading Announcing SDI 2022.03.1110.
