Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Trigger on offline, or disable offline disabling

I'd like to be able to have a notifier trigger when a local network interface goes down, but Simon helpfully notices that it's offline and disables notifications. :/

Any way to disable the disabling?

Re: Trigger on offline, or disable offline disabling

Not at present, no. Generally people wouldn't want that, as it'd result in false failures. I'll make a note of the suggestion to make that a preference, though, and consider it for future releases.

Simon 2.3 adds the ability to disable the offline check.
