The nightly the homepage calls 13-03-2010 claims it is incompatible with
my tb 220.127.116.11 (20100228). I tried 18.104.22.168 which seems to have
sychroniyed correctly (run throgh, no obvious errors) but interestingly,
if I say extras|synckolab einstellungen and I select Kontakt, Kalender
or Aufgaben, the tree "Verzeichnisse" is always empty -- I would have
expected to see my IMAP folders there, I assume it has taken the
configuration from my previous synckolab.

I am using Windows 7 on 3 computers, 2 of them with tb3.
Please consider that I might want to upgrade to tb3 as much as you want
me to but the reason why I still have use a TB2 is that I need at least
one computer to synchronize with my kolab server which I do not consider
stable in TB3 with some nightly build that might break the other day.
That is the reason why I keep testing synckolab and it was the reason
why I offered money for a stable version in the first place.
More precisely, we have three companies (usegroup.de=at least one win7
requires kolab, otb-it.de=three linux boxes require kolab and
knicken.net=four macs and one PC require kolab connectivity) eager to
migrate to TB3 -- only usegroup.de can not recommend it's partners to
change some obscure settings in a config file and ask them to install a
experimental nightly build.
Sorry for bein harsh, actually thank you very much for developing and
providing synckolab at all but as mentioned, I'd rather contribute to a
stable version than using nightlies on productive systems where I have
to guarantee that everything works.
Should we e.g. keep a copy of the 03-13 nightly in case we need a new
workstation to be set up -- or would we use the current nighly of that
day and how likely will we be able to rely on it?
Thank you and kind regards,
mit freundlichen Grüßen
