Spread the love

Version 1.16.0 of Syncthing has been released. Syncthing is an open source program that allows files to be synchronized between two computers. This happens just like with Resilio, formerly known as BitTorrent Sync, without a central server in between, as is the case with storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and iCloud. The software is available for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android, among others. There are also packages for Synology and Qnap. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:
