Danger Will Robinson!

If you use Missing Sync, it's going to ask you to upgrade to 5.0.2 today. If you value your sanity (and the contents of your calendar and address book) I really recommend you not. <LJ-CUT text=" --More--(13%) ">

Here's what I sent via their feedback form last night. No reply yet, except an auto-reply saying that the company will be completely shut down for Thanksgiving! Making it even more awesome that they did a release the day before. "Time to ship, save your buffers!"

I upgraded to 5.0.2 and synced, and all kinds of bad things happened:

  • every email address, postal address, and AIM handle in my addressbook was duplicated: if someone had 3 email addresses, now they had 6.
  • the tags on lots of those addresses changed from "work" or "home" to "other".

  • every "repeat yearly" entry in my iCal was duplicated. Now there are two copies of every birthday reminder I ever entered.

So I restored Library/Application Support from backup and tried again, this time saying "overwrite handheld at next sync" for contacts and events. That seemed to work at first, but:

  • then the next time I synced without doing "overwrite", it screwed up the start times of all of my events! E.g., every event that was "8pm - 10pm" is now "12am - 10pm"!

Should I downgrade to 5.0.1, or do you expect 5.0.3 to be out almost immediately?
