The latest pre-release includes two major new features and as always your help to test them would be much appreciated!
Sync target upgrade
The first one is a mechanism to upgrade and lock the sync target. In this version, it only makes small changes so as to put the feature in place and verify that it’s all working (so far there’s no known issue).
As a result, when you start the app it will ask you to upgrade the sync target. Once it is done, only the latest clients will be able to sync with this sync target. Currently that includes the desktop app (v1.0.234+) and Android app (v1.0.337+). It means if you are using these two clients you’ll be fine. However if you are using the iOS or CLI clients you might want to wait till these clients are updated.
The long term plan with this feature is to allow making various improvements to the sync target. To make it faster to sync in some cases, to fix a scalability issue, and to simplify E2EE support.
Search engine update
The search engine now includes new filters: https://github.com/laurent22/joplin#searching As this is also a major change, any help with testing the feature would be appreciated. Again there’s no known issue but If you notice any bug or slow down, please post here.
