Econ Technologies has released ChronoSync 4.7.6 and ChronoAgent 1.6.2, enhancing the ChronoSync synchronization and backup app with improved logic to preserve the currently selected Target path, plus a new Readiness Warning if the startup volume is selected for an operation other than Bootable Backup. ChronoSync also updates how keychain entries are managed, fixes a bug in the AWS S3 Connection that could result in an infinite loop, and resolves a potential problem with displaying the progress window content. The ChronoAgent utility fixes a bug that caused a WAN-IP check to fail and eliminates “overzealous” authd system log messages triggered by the ChronoAgent Monitor. (Free updates for both apps; $49.99 new for ChronoSync with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, 42.8 MB, release notes, 10.8+; $14.99 new for ChronoAgent, 12.7 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
