Developer WorldSync announced on Monday that
Single-user Engine 5.0, as well as SyncDek Network Engine 5.0, and SyncDek Developer Kit are now shipping. Designed for use at remote sites and by on-the-go employees who often must work offline, SyncDek 5.0 enables synchronization of specific fields between distributed FileMaker databases, using Java-based background services — the new feature found in this version — to do so. It’s compatible with FileMaker 6 and 7 databases and requires Mac OS X v10.2.x or higher, 30MB RAM and 50MB free hard drive space.
Now through July 31, SyncDek Single-user Engine is US$199 per license (regularly $249) and SyncDek Network Engine is $699 ($849), while combinations of the engines are available in starter kits that are $1,299 ($1,499). The Single-user license is required for every employee with a standalone copy of a database, while the Network license is necessary if a FileMaker server is one of the synchronized nodes in the network.
SyncDek Developer Kit provides an environment for configuring, testing, deploying and maintaining FileMaker databases synchronized with SyncDek 5.0. It features a new SyncDek Developer Tool, which configures and maintains databases, two set-up assistants that create and edit replication and Version Update Management settings and an unlimited number of temporary activation keys for node set-up and testing. System requirements are the same as SyncDek 5.0, and pricing is $499 until July 31, when it rises to $749.
