Compability with newest firmware

Mar 26, 2009 at 11:12 AM
Does anybody know if SynoManager still works on Synology DS with firmware version: DSM 2.1-0832; Build Date: 2009/03/07.
As I read, they changes there a lot.
I would like to upgrade but not sure if SynoManager (the only way to download from RS on Synology DS) will handle it.

Hi Bedni,
The new firmware doesn't seem to make any difference, but I still get a lot of crashes. I think a few of them have been fixed, but Flard hasn't released the fixes yet.

Ok, GUI crashes sometimes, need work on it ;)
But when assuming that Rapidshare link are not dead, Synology DS is not overload, I'm using most stable Windows Environment... will I able to download with no problems with newest firmware?

Well I can't d/l anything ATM, I assumed it was the ongoing problems but maybe it is the latest firmware. Can you D/L using the clipboard watcher?

(Just so you guys know: I'm currently very busy creating a new release. I fixed a lot of issues in the core code. But I also added support for the filestation and subscribing to rss feeds, and those things have to be finished before I can publish the new release. If everything goes well, I hope to release a 'beta' version around monday.)

Hi Bedni,
I don't know whether you have been following the issue I raised about the crashes I was having, but it seems the problem was I hadn't cleared the D/L list. I can now confirm synomanager DOES work with the latest firmware!

Thanks for that info John! Weekend is coming which means more time for tests.
I will update firmware this evening and spend some time trough weekend for testing app.

Or maybe I will wait until Flard release new beta version to be as more constructive as this can be (with no double issues)
