Product Release: July 3, 2018
We are pleased to announce the release of IBM Aspera Sync 3.8.1 for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. This release offers two new sync option settings.
KEY NEW FEATURES
- A new async option,
--ignore-mode, prevents the file mode from being synced from the source to the destination. Use this option to allow the file to have different modes on the source and destination and to prevent Sync from hanging if the destination permissions change.
- Sync now respects the
files_filelock_enabledsetting in a user's access key, which overrides the server setting in aspera.conf.
- A new Sync option
--clean-excludedcan be used to optimize the Sync snapshot database when using
--excludeby removing directories from the snapshot as they become excluded. The option applies to all Sync directions and the excluded paths are removed from the snapshot database on both endpoints.
