Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. 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 will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Web HTTP checks false failing/recovering in new beta

From the moment that I upgraded to 3.5b2, all of my Web HTTP checks have been periodically failing, and then recoverying almost immediately thereafter.

There is one fairly unique feature of my environment: I've been running Simon in a Parallels virtual machine, along with one other OS X instance, to use my physical machine more efficiently. I've been doing this for about a year with no problems up until now.

Is there anything that I can do to help troubleshoot what might be causing this?

Re: Web HTTP checks false failing/recovering in new beta

Please activate debug mode for the Web plugin via the following Terminal command:

defaults write com.dejal.simon WebDebugMode YES

Then once the issue occurs again (preferably after a couple examples of failing and recovering), please email me the Console log, so I can see what is happening.
