The beta of next version is finally available. If you want to test it, you can install it manually using this link. Please report any issues regarding this version on the forums.
There are many changes since the 1.0.0 release, mainly around installation and the GUI.
As previously announced, and since DSM 4.3 broke authentication, the “standard” GUI has finally been removed.
The “optimized” GUI is now the only GUI, automatically started with the SynoBox service, and can be accessed using the icon in the DSM menu, as usual.
By default, the GUI is started on port 9007, and the login/password is admin/admin. It is highly recommended to change at least the password.
If you need to access the GUI from the internet, you can of course NAT the 9007 port number to your NAS. However, data are sent through HTTP, which is not encrypted. This could allow hackers to find your login/password.
The best would be to install an HTTP proxy like HAProxy (from SynoCommunity), and configure a new synobox backend, like the others. This way, SynoBox access will be secured with HTTPS, external URL will look like https://synobox.XXX.synology.me/.
- updated downloaded files modification time to match the time stored in Dropbox (based on client_mtime field)
- fixed selfcheck error since permission propagation has been added
- fixed var/ permissions to limit access to synobox and root users
- fixed temp download folder to empty at startup
- fixed upload of live updating files like webcam videos, which result in thinking file has been modified in Dropbox
- updated ignore list to match .~files
- removed standard gui, since DSM 4.3 introduced a new security feature that broke authentication
- added settings wizard at installation, to define GUI HTTP port number, login and password
- EDIT: fixed missing parallel input box in the general options
- EDIT: fixed some permissions fix to fail silently
- EDIT: changed updated files detection to scan all files, as files with dates set to the past were systematically lost
- EDIT: added new option to control DSM notification, disabled by default
