gSyncit v5 Updates

CURRENT RELEASE: v5.5.166 (November 2021)


The 64-bit version of gSyncit requires that you have a 64-bit version of Outlook installed. Install the 32-bit version of gSyncit if using the 32-bit version of Outlook. You can confirm the "bit" version of Outlook used by checking the Outlook File / Help or File / Accounts dialog in Outlook.

Looking for gSyncit v4?

RELEASE NOTES

v5.5.166 - November 2021
  • UPDATE: Removed the ability to configure gSyncit to sync Outlook contacts with deprecated Google Contacts / People internal system labels including Blocked, Chat Contacts, Coworkers, Family, Friends, and Shared. This change mainly addresses the case of syncing Outlook categories with Google task labels and users notice contact update changes fail to sync from Outlook to Google.

    The Google People Membership API introduced in gSyncit v5.5 deprecated support for many internal system contacts labels / groups (e.g. family, coworker, friends). These deprecated groups were not accounted for when gSyncit v5.5 was released. Customers syncing with these deprecated groups will notice they can sync from Google to Outlook but syncing changes from Outlook to Google will fail as a result of the Google contact label assignment being read-only due to the label being deprecated by Google.

    Due to this change gSyncit will no longer allow selecting these deprecated labels on the sync mappings. Existing unedited sync mappings will continue to reference to deprecated groups but you may encounter issues syncing changes from Outlook to Google until the sync mapping is updated to point to non-system groups. 

    If you are syncing with specific Google contacts system groups (e.g. Friends, Coworkers, Family, Chat Contacts, ...) then you need to update your Google Contacts to move your contacts to equivalent labels that you create. Then update the gSyncit Contact sync mapping to point to the new group. This ensure contacts synced from Outlook to Google Contacts can be assigned to the expected groups. For example, if you are currently syncing your Outlook contacts with a label/group called "Friends" you will need to explicitly create a groups/label in Google contacts called "Friends" and update the gSyncit Contacts Mappings to sync with this new "Friends" group.

    If you are currently using the option to auto sync Outlook categories with Google groups then no changes are required. The new groups will be created automatically during the sync process.

  • UPDATE: Upgraded gSyncit to use the VC++ 2019 Runtime.

v5.5.165 - November 2021
  • PATCH: Workaround for rate limiting issue syncing Google People / Contact photos that may result in some contacts not syncing. Google limits contact photos to 60/minute/user. The sync process has been updated to reflect this rate limit. At the same time we've made a request to Google to increase our quota to improve sync performance.

v5.5.164 - November 2021
  • FIX: Corrects issue where the option to sync the Outlook FileAs field with a Google contact user-defined field was not persisted when modified on the settings dialog.

  • FIX: Corrects CardDav sync error when syncing with a CardDav account that has multiple address books associated with the principle account.

  • UPDATE: Updates the Todoist sync to use the description field for syncing the task description. This update also removes the *legacy* option to sync the Todoist comment with the Outlook task description field.

v5.5.161 - October 2021
  • FIX: Adds configuration to CalDav sync to control syncing the CATEGORIES field which is not supported by many CalDav servers. This option is enabled by default. If your CalDav server does not support the CATEGORIES properties then you should disable this option to avoid the loss of categories assigned to Outlook events.

v5.5.160 - September 2021
  • FIX: Corrects "Response status code does not indicate success: 400 (Bad Request)." caused by a change made by Google on September 23rd that requires sending a "Content-ID" header with each batch task request entry. This change conflicts with Google's own API BatchRequest implementation which does not set this now expected header.

    This was not a planned or communicated change from Google. They updates the Google Calendar service without warning that also was compatible with their own Microsoft .Net Client Libraries used by gSyncit.

v5.5.159 - September 2021
  • FIX: Corrects error "The added or subtracted value results in an un-representable DateTime. Parameter name: value".

v5.5.158 - September 2021
  • FIX: Corrects error "The added or subtracted value results in an un-representable DateTime. Parameter name: value". when syncing deleted Outlook events from Google calendar when syncing all appointments. Please note that it is strongly recommended to not syncing all appointments and to use the day range option. It is less efficient and rarely needed to sync all events with a calendar considering that events older than ~30 days rarely change or need updating. If events start outside the sync day range but occur within the day range these events WILL be synced by gSyncit.

v5.5.157 - September 2021
  • FIX: Corrects "Response status code does not indicate success: 400 (Bad Request)." caused by a change made by Google on September 13th that requires sending a "Content-ID" header with each batch task request entry. This change conflicts with Google's own API BatchRequest implementation which does not set this now expected header.

  • FIX: Corrects issue where allowing items to be deleted outside the sync range was not working as expected. Original fix in v5.5.152 not working as expected.

  • FIX: Corrects "Error 3: exceeded max bulk limit" syncing with Pocket Informant Online.

v5.5.153 - September 2021
  • UPDATE: Updated the Google Contacts/People sync batch operations to 200 items. In the 5.5.152 the batch size was changed to 500 that is not a valid batch size.

v5.5.152 - September 2021
  • FIX: Removes log4net dependency from the product.

  • FIX: Corrects issue where allowing items to be deleted outside the sync range was not working as expected.

  • FIX: Corrects issue syncing FileAs file containing quoted characters.

  • FIX: Minor revision to logic used to detect if Google events are all-day.

  • UPDATE: Updated the Google Contacts/People sync batch operations from 25 to 500 contacts per request to address potential quota limits. This also improves the contact sync performance slightly when updating large batches of changes.

v5.5.147 - July 2021
  • FIX: Corrects installer issue.

v5.5.146 - July 2021
  • UPDATE: Updated Google client libraries

  • FIX: Corrects issue where when syncing attachments from Outlook to Google calendar then sync may unnecessarily sync the Google event back to the Outlook event.

v5.5.144 - June 2021
  • REVISION: Updates the authentication browser windows to no longer use incognito mode. Using incognito mode was confusing and concerning to customers despite the deliberate choice to use incognito mode in gSyncit to offer increased security by avoiding any credentials being cached.

  • FIX: Corrects issue filtering Outlook events by private flag. When transitioning a public event to private the event failed to be marked for deletion from the Google calendar.

  • FIX: Corrects issue with ";;;;" appearing on iCloud contact group names when using iCloud.com after syncing using CardDav with iCloud.

  • FIX: Corrects formatting issue syncing http[s] links from Outlook when using the format "[name] <link>". This corrects issue where line feed is removed when a line of text contains a URLand addresses potential loss of URL if the link name/address are different.

v5.5.139 - May 2021
  • FIX: Corrects application crash issue when selection categories on the gSyncit settings dialog using Outlook 2007.

  • FIX: Corrects "Insufficient permissions to modify a field on the resource" error when updating recurring Google event occurrences related to a meeting owned by someone else. This issue surfaces when the sequence property on the event, organized by someone else, is updated. This issue caused some changes to recurring Outlook event exceptions to fail to sync/update to the Google calendar.

  • FIX: Minor cosmetic update to people configuration dialog.

v5.5.134 - April 2021

After installing this update use the duplicate removal wizard on the gSyncit tool bar in Outlook to clean up any duplicate Outlook contacts.

v5.5.125 - March 2021
  • NEW: Updated the Google Contact sync to use the recently released Google People API batch operations (https://developers.googleblog.com/2021/03/google-people-api-now-supports-batch.html) providing faster contact syncing when adding, updating and/or deleting contacts.

  • NEW: Updates CalDav sync to support the iCalendar COLOR property specification allowing the color of a Outlook category to sync with a color assigned to a iCalendar event. See specification for additional details. Please check that your iCalendar implementation supports this property.

    To enable this work-flow select the "Other" tab on the gSyncit CalDav sync mapping and select the option (see below) to sync CalDav event color with the Outlook event category. This option maps the first Outlook category color with a matching/assigned/supported iCalendar event color and vice versa.

  • UPDATE: Updates the Outlook category listings on the gSyncit settings to show the categories available within the mailbox for the selected Outlook folder. In prior versions of gSyncit the list if categories was based only on the primary mailbox.

v5.5.115 - February 2021
  • FIX: Corrects "r" character appearing after the street address when syncing Google Contacts with iOS contacts. To fully correct this issue you should set Outlook as the primary source on the gSyncit Google contacts sync mapping and re-sync all contacts to your Google account. This will remove the "\r" return control character that iOS does not render correctly.

v5.5.114 - February 2021
  • FIX: Corrects issue syncing with Google domain contacts using the new Google People API work flow resulting in missing contacts.

    Note: if you experience this issue after installing gSyncit v5.5 then you will need to edit the gSyncit Google Contact sync mapping, select the repair tab and reset BOTH the sync history and cache to ensure the updated contact information is requested from your Google domain contacts list.

  • FIX: Updated the "Restore Settings" button on the gSyncit settings to open dialog to the current gSyncit settings folder. We'be seen a few reports of users upgrading to gSyncit v5.5 where the settings failed to migrate.

  • FIX: Corrects issue syncing Outlook distribution lists with Google groups.

  • FIX: Corrects "r" character appearing after each line on the Contact notes when syncing Google Contacts with iOS contacts.

    gSyncit v5 was released without support for Wunderlist knowing that Microsoft had already planned and communicated plans to deprecate this service back in April 2017. We restored Wunderlist functionality in gSyncit v5.2.41 based on customer feedback to allowing syncing until the service was disabled. We are now removing this functionality as Microsoft has fully discontinued Wunderlist. 

v5.4.94 - May 2020
  • FIX: Corrects issue where gSyncit settings accessed from the system tray does not reflect the same settings configured through Outlook after installing the gSyncit v5.4.93 update. 

    The v5.4.93 update resolved an issue caused by a recent Microsoft Office update. However, this change also affected the logic gSyncit used to read the name of the default Outlook profile to ensure it loads the gSyncit settings associated with the default Outlook profile. 

    In late April 2020 Microsoft released a update to Microsoft Office that altered the Outlook profile work flow in the MAPI32.dll Windows library when calling  MAPIInitialize causing it enter a fault state when invoked. This MAPI API call is required before calling any other API calls needed to access Outlook related content. This patch loads the required libraries into the process so that the MAPIInitialize() call runs correctly allowing gSyncit to read the name of the default Outlook profile name. 

    The actual C# (.NET) code to work around this issue is shown below....

    var programFilesPath = System.Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.ProgramFilesX86);
    LoadLibrary(string.Format(@"{0}\Microsoft Office\root\vfs\ProgramFilesCommonX86\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE16\Mso20win32client.dll", programFilesPath));
    LoadLibrary(string.Format(@"{0}\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\OutlookServicing.dll", programFilesPath));
    MAPIInitialize(IntPtr.Zero);
    
v5.4.93 - April 2020
  • FIX: Corrects "System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException (0x80004005): External component has thrown an exception." after installing April 2020 Microsoft Outlook/Office updates. The root issue is related to a problem invoking the MAPIInitialize() function on the MSMAPI32 library.

  • UPDATE: Updated Google libraries/dependencies to latest 2020 v1.45 release. The Google library updates are important as they include the latest changes/updates by Google for interfacing with the Google API's used by gSyncit.

v5.4.89 - March 2020
  • FIX: Corrects issue gSyncit settings dialog did not render correctly when using scaled display settings.

v5.4.88 - March 2020

  • FIX: Corrects issue where syncing Outlook calendars with Google event colors, if the event color uses the same color "id" as the default calendar color then the event color may not sync correctly and shows on the Google calendar without the expected color.

  • REVISION: Improves sync of Outlook rich text formatting with Google event HTML formatting. In some cases if the rich text formatting uses specific tags or name spaces, when converted to HTML by Outlook, Google is unable to parse the HTML and shows the raw HTML code. Google calendar events support very basic HTML formatting including bold, italics, underline, basic bullet points/numbers lists and links. Complex HTML formatting using styles or more advances HTML is not supported by Google calendar. This discrepancy necessitates the need to strip some of the formatting from the Outlook version of the HTML before syncing it to the Google event.

v5.4.76 - December 2019
  • REVISION: Simperium has discontinue support for third party access to Simplenote. This feature has been disabled in the software until further notice. We strongly encourage syncing Outlook notes with Google Drive "notes" folder using your Google account.

  • REVISION: Updated the sync calendar sync logic with Google calendar and CalDav calendars to correctly sync the iCal UUID between calendar events and set the PidLidGlobalObjectId, PidLidCleanGlobalObjectId, and PR_OWNER_APPT_ID properties on the Outlook event. This fix applies to new and updated meetings after the update is installed.

    This revision corrects the case where updating a meeting and sending a update results in original and updated event appearing in the attendee calendar. This revision also corrects being able to tally responses to meetings from either calendar and canceled events being correctly removed from the attendees calendar.

    For example, if a meeting event is created in the Outlook calendar, sync to attendees, synced to the Google calendar, moved to a new date/time in the Google calendar, and then sent to the attendees from the Google calendar then the attendee will correctly receive a update to the original event vs. a new event.

    Changes based on details available in the Microsoft Appointment and Meeting Object Protocol

v5.4.59 - September 2019
  • FIX: Corrects CardDav sync issue where not all contacts may sync from the CardDav server. This occurs due to a bug where if the CardDav return returns a 404 status for any requests properties then gSyncit incorrectly considered the contact as deleted and ignored the contact record.

v5.4.57 - September 2019
  • FIX: Corrects calendar/contacts sync error syncing with the iCloud. Apple now requires using the /.well-known/... path to determine the principle Uri vs. the root CalDav/carddavicloud.com URI to determines which iCloud server group the user CalDav information is accessed.

v5.4.54 - September 2019
  • FIX: Corrects issue where the Outlook timezone may be mapped incorrectly to the Google event. This issue is caused by the & character being represented in the timezone as %2A preventing a proper time zone match. This issue appears to be related to a recent Microsoft Outlook update.

  • UPDATE: Updates Todoist sync to use the latest v8 API

  • UPDATE: Revision to the collision dialog for events to include the date/time before the subject

  • FIX: Corrects "Parsing Failed" error when syncing with Google Contacts. This error can occur when syncing a Google contact with a anniversary date that does not include the year (e.g. "Jan 23") or the year is set to "0000" (e.g. 1/1/0000). 

v5.4.41 - July 2019

At a lower level when trying to access the recurrence exception using Exception.AppointmentItem this error is sometimes returned where-as using RecurrencePattern.GetOccurence(date) does not return this error.

  • UPDATE: Adds option to explicitly allow Outlook to send meeting responses to meetings that are synced from the Google calendar. For example, if the Google event meeting response is marked as not attending/denied then when the change is synced to the Outlook calendar then Outlook can be set to sent a response. By default Outlook will only send responses for meetings marked as accepted/tentative. This option is available on the gSyncit Google Calendar sync mapping / Other tab.
