synergy advance dead?

  1. anonymous

    I just purchased a copy of this software and it doesn't seem to work with my new imac running 10.5.6. Is development for this product dead since there hasn't been any updates since 2008ish. If so can i get a refund for the product?

    I just posted a progress update a few days ago in ticket #944 so please see that ticket for full details. The short version is that things are moving forward quickly right now as I have four to six hours per day available for getting things ready. Your ticket was anonymous so I don't know who you are but if you'd like a complimentary Synergy license in the meantime to tide you over please get in touch with by email (
