This is great news! I hope, that the reason why was newer files overwriten is known.

 

Would it be possible to release patch for this bug for "old" version of BTSync client 1.3.109 ?

Thus for last usable version in production. Existing 1.4.x version is not usable in meantime.

Thank you, anyway.

Nope - 1.3.x is no longer maintained.

Why do you feel that 1.4.x is "not usable in the meantime"? If you're suffering from the "newer files overwritten by older files" issue, as per the theme of this thread, the latest 1.4 build (1.4.103) should address this.

At least is not tested, and as you know, version 1.4 still have many reported bugs outside this one. (listening port, predefined hosts, UPnP port mapping, many reported UI problems...)

 

I think that there is many lucky users that did not update their environments to 1.4 and for all of them this patch should be extremely helpful, because this issue was one from the essential one.

Many of the "bugs" you list HAVE since been fixed!! - For example, the "listening port" bug was resolved for 1.4.93

@kratochviljan

The fix is important indeed and bug was affecting both 1.3 and 1.4. Unfortunately, we cannot longer support 1.3 so my advise would be - upgrade to 1.4.

 

1.4 has a number of fixes since release covering issues discovered in both 1.3 and 1.4 and shows much better stability than after release. Also, we continue to work on issues reported by customers to make 1.4 even more stable.
