EasySync: Version 1.0 Released

This morning I released EasySync v1.0, the first official release of EasySync. You can learn more on EasySync's Web site: http://fmeasysync.com

EasySync has been a collaborative effort, and the framework would not be what it is today without the feedback and suggestions that I've received from all of our beta testers. There are also quite a few people who played key roles in EasySync's rapid development over the past few weeks. You know who you are, but just in case, here's a list. Thank you for everything!

So, what's next for EasySync?

We're in the process of putting together a small group of people who will help to determine EasySync's future, and take it from what it is today to... Well, to be honest, I don't know what it will turn into. There are talks of converting it to the Modular FileMaker style, of adding support for field-level synchronization, and more. I'll continue to play a role in EasySync's development, but by and large I'll be "passing the torch" to the advisory group and other developers (people who are much smarter and talented than I am). I feel confident that EasySync will be very well taken care of.

I'm also working on a related project called "ServerSync." This is a database replication solution based in large part on the EasySync engine. You can use it to replicate data from one server to another, or to allow "subscribers" to pull data from a published database. Like EasySync, ServerSync will be provided via an open source license. I gave a sneak peak of ServerSync a few days ago, and if you haven't seen it, I invite you to check it out. I have no ETA on ServerSync just yet, but I can say that it will be available very soon.

Thanks again for the interest and support that I've received over the past few weeks. It's been an interesting and fun ride!
