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.

Moving Simon setup to a different Mac

I have a few Simon tests set up on one Mac, but now that I've figured out what I'm doing, I'd rather run Simon on a different machine. Is it sufficient to move everything in ~/Library/Application Support/Dejal/Simon to the other Mac, or are there other files that I might need?

Re: Moving Simon setup to a different Mac

Yes, that's all you need, though you might want to copy your preferences as well (in ~/Library/Preferences/com.dejal.simon.plist and ~/Library/Preferences/com.dejal.simon2.plist if it exists).

Make sure you quit Simon before moving the data.
