Announcing Synergy/DE 18.104.22.16892May 19, 2023
Our latest release of Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio (SDI) comes packed with a range of new features, improvements, and fixes to give you a better development experience. Changes include:
- Enhancements to general multi-threading and exception handling to provide better stability and performance of the build system
- Changes for improved .NET stability, including better support for referencing C# projects without project GUIDs, and moving projects across solutions
- Improved Telemetry, designed to proactively catch unexpected exceptions and make it easier for us to diagnose issues and thus provide more effective support. When you contact our Developer Support team, provide your Telemetry IDs by navigating to Tools > Options > Synergy DBL > Advanced (see image below). These randomly generated IDs will enable us to look up the diagnostics for your specific session to troubleshoot the issue. (The telemetry data is anonymized.)
- Ability to load Common Properties and Environment Variables set from a selected project in the Solution Explorer into the Synergy VS Command Prompt (see image below)
Note that Winforms and WPF projects are now deprecated (see image below). We’re no longer maintaining these project types with Microsoft updates. Winforms and WPF templates will be removed in a future SDI release, but the projects will continue to load until a Microsoft update fully breaks their support. We encourage you to turn on Telemetry to help us gain insights into whether these projects are still being actively used.
The improvements in this new release will provide you with a more seamless development experience. We encourage all users to upgrade.
Your feedback is crucial to us. Please share your thoughts on this release or anything SDI-related by emailing software development manager Tim Bauguess at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you.
