Today is the first of March, the third month of 2011, and so we would like to give you guys some updates.
As of today, the following changes are officially live across all three of our officially supported platforms:
- **Folder Sync – **AeroFS no longer requires a virtual drive to synchronize files. Any libraries you create starting today going forward will be created locally. On Windows, they will appear under
My Documents/AeroFS. On Linux and Mac they will appear under
~/AeroFS. For existing installations, the drive will continue to be enabled for the next few versions, allowing you to migrate your files easily to the new location.
- Selective Sync - Some of you have expressed that you may not want to sync all libraries on all devices. We’ve now implemented that feature in an opt-out fashion. By default, all your computers will automatically join a new library when it is created, but by visiting the control panel of a particular device you’ll be able to opt that machine out of any library it is a member of. Additionally, if you want to disable a computer from automatically joining a newly created library, this is also possible by visiting the Control Panel.
- Although this is not a direct feature, we’ve also drastically increased stability and performance!
Additionally, as of today our team has grown from two engineers to three. Our newest member, Allen, is joining us from Toronto and will be contributing to all things AeroFS related. We’re incredibly excited to have him on board and he’s already hard at work making AeroFS better for you.
Finally, and probably what most of you reading this are hoping to hear: We’re releasing another set of invitations today, so check your emails!
The AeroFS Team
Yuri, Weihan, and Allen
