Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.5.3 and ChronoAgent 1.4.7 with improved compatibility with OS X 10.10 Yosemite. The ChronoSync automated synchronization and backup app also migrates away from using several deprecated APIs in Yosemite, provides a much shorter delay when performing a Trial Sync that finds a large number of nonexistent files, performs update checks via a secure connection, sets a volume’s Ignore Ownership state to Off when performing a bootable backup, fixes a bug that interfered with the initial Document Organizer display and the auto-update check on launch, and fixes some animation glitches when running 10.9 Mavericks. The ChronoAgent utility receives some minor interface tweaks when running in Yosemite and improves its performance and error handling. (Free updates for both apps; $40 new for ChronoSync with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, 41.7 MB, release notes, 10.6+; $10 new for ChronoAgent, 12.5 MB, release notes, 10.5+)
