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).

Hi Guys,

I am new here also a new customer, and i ran into some issues.
I've read the post about mysql and i checked everything but simon doesn't check my database.

The database is on our internal network and i can connect to the database with navicat, so far so good. But when i add this server to simon it doesn't come up with a healty status.

I use a password to connect to the server, and the database is also password protected. One thing i completely don't understand is the query part of the settings.

Also is there a script for SQL Servers?

Any help is very welcome.
