Yesterday Microsoft has released ActiveSync in version 3.7.
It's the latest synchronization software for Microsoft Windows Powered Pocket PCs and Smartphones. ActiveSync 3.7 contains fixes making synchronization more trouble free than ever before and includes all the significant improvements brought to you in ActiveSync 3.5 and 3.6.

If you had not already installed ActiveSync 3.5, ActiveSync 3.7 will also bring you up to date with compatibility to Microsoft Office XP and Windows XP.

While ActiveSync 3.7 isn't that big feature improvement it contains some developer improvements like Pocket PC and Smartphone 2003 support as well as some security items:

  • ActiveSync 3.7 is designed to work and support Pocket PC/Smartphone 2003 which becomes important now for developers.
  • It address a publicly posted "Denial of Service security hole" in ActiveSync (not a major issue but anyway - good to have the latest fix running).
  • Some minor connectivity fixes. It isn't going to fix all problems but there are some users that will experience more reliable connectivity as a result of upgrading to AS 3.7.

In any case it's a good idea to upgrade your current ActiveSync version to 3.7.

Cheers ~ Arne

@Thomas O.: German is already available by changing the language from the pull-down menu on the download site from English to German.

@Thomas O.: Ah, okay... :-) We wrote it more or less at the same time. big_smile

Anyway - might be interesting for all, ActiveSync is currently available in English and German only!

More language to come soon!

When will they get round to allowing Activesync to sync two devices simultaneously? It is a real pain when I want to keep my PDA and my smartphone updated.

@Jason Thacker: Yes, this would be great (more then 2 would be even better ;-) ) but I don't expect it soon. At least never with 3.x maybe with 4.x - whenever it will be released.
