Hi @all,

I just released synckolab 0.5.1 on the update server. It is HIGHLY 
recommended that all users which use <0.5.0 upgrade to this version 
since it resolves almost all the old bugs (there are still a few known 
issues open, but they are being worked at).

Make sure you backup your profile directory beforehand, since there have 
been quite a few changes in this version that might result in data loss 
if you configure it wrong (shouldnt happen, but its always a good idea 
to backup your profile directory from time to time :P).

In case you have problems:
- uninstall synckolab
- remove all lines containing synckolab from your prefs.js (in your 
thunderbird profile folder)
- remove all *.hdb files from your profile folder
- install 0.5.1 and configure everything

have fun :)
