Release Notes: The synctool software itself is now being kept up to date automatically on client nodes. This makes upgrading synctool a breeze. Making some typos on the command line, like with "-diff" and using multiple slashes in filenames, could lead to undesired effects. This is no longer a problem in the new version. synctool no longer prints a Python stack trace when hitting Ctrl-C. The backwards compatibility with older versions of Python has been improved. Two very useful contributions have been added to the package: a .bash_completion file and a graphical synctool-diff tool.
Release Notes: The groups 'all' and 'none' are now built-in groups. Compound groups are new and may now be defined in the config file. The command-line parser now checks for excessive arguments. This catches mistakes that could previously lead to undesired results. A (harmless but annoying) bug in filtering ignored nodes in synctool-config was fixed. The upload feature was improved; it now works a lot better when the target is in a subdirectory that has been given a group extension.
