We have released Synapse 1.3.6 which contains a collection of bug fixes. The primary purpose of the release is to consolidate the individual component updates that have been released since 1.3.5 and to fix a common installation problem that people have been running into lately. As releases go this is a minor one.
Among the components that have been patched are:
- The probe component (fixed crashes)
- Delta Terminator (fixed performance issues)
- RBF Layer (fixed GUI bug)
An important issue with the install of Synapse has now hopefully been fixed. When starting Synapse the first time on a Vista or Windows 7 machine and with User Account Control (UAC) running, trial version users have been getting "License System Corrupted" messages from Synapse. This was due to UAC blocking a part of the install of the system that occurs when you start Synapse for the first time. The workaround was to start Synapse with administrative privileges, but many missed the workaround and could not subsequently get the software running. In 1.3.6 when you start Synapse, it will check if it has enough permissions to do the install, and if not to start a new process with administrative rights (the user gets a prompt). Hopefully this will be the end of that particular issue.
