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.

Login failure not reporting for report upload

Just updated to 3.2.1 from 3.2 - I had had this mac mini off for a few weeks, and updated prior to putting my monitoring back online. Hit update for the reports, they showed working, for longer than I thought they should, then finished with no indication of any problem. I went to the web page, and it was the old info - and then I remembered I'd changed my FTP password a few weeks ago. I changed the password inside the reports setup, and the reports ran quickly, and the new info showed up.

* it seems to be a different layout than the last version - but that's not a big problem.

So - there was no indication that the FTP login had failed - hope this helps -

Re: Login failure not reporting for report upload

Reports are independent of tests, so issues with them don't show up in the Activity log (which is test-specific). I should probably add some better indication of report issues.
