We’re unveiling something cool today! It’s a management system for large Syncthing clusters, we’ve been working on it under cover for a while, and we’re calling it Arigi. arigi verb (Esperanto) to amass · to gather · to put together What’s it for? It’s for when you have a lot of Syncthing instances and you want to treat them more as cattle than as pets. That is, you want to know how the herd is doing at a glance and give it instructions as a group instead of individually.
Both VirtualBox and VMWare Fusion are neat virtualization tools. I use Fusion for most day to day work - it’s served me well for a long time and I have a significant stash of useful machines in it. But sometimes I also need to use VirtualBox, typically for working with Vagrant. The problem is that the two of them don’t get along very well…
We’ve now merged something pretty cool: Audrius’ work with integrating the KCP connection type into Syncthing! This gives us connections over UDP for the first time and I’d like to share what you can expect to take away from that.
By popular demand we’re now offering two training courses on Syncthing! Both are one day modules, held on premises at the customer.
A while back we used to release once a week. Since this summer releases are made every second Tuesday. We will now introduce the concept of “stable releases” and “release candidates”.
