Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.7 and ChronoAgent 1.6.1, adding direct support for Amazon S3 and Google Cloud services to ChronoSync and bringing official support for macOS 10.12 Sierra to ChronoAgent. The ChronoSync synchronization and backup app also adds SFTP server support to expand backup options to additional local servers, NAS devices, and remote servers; adds a Progressive Scanning File Operation to improve resuming suspended backups; and implements a redesigned Connection Profile Architecture to improve reliability. ChronoAgent adds the capability to mount disk images on ChronoAgent Macs, fixes a bug that displayed the ChronoAgent Preference Pane icon in the Dock when running in Sierra, and fixes some minor issues with Extended Attributes. (Free updates for both apps; $49.99 new for ChronoSync with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, 40.9 MB, release notes, 10.8+; $14.99 new for ChronoAgent, 12.7 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
