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.

Error in MySQL service: Exception in plugin MySQL: NSInvalidArgumentException (...)

Hi! I am trying to execute the MySQL service, but I am getting this error on Simon's activity:

MySQL Exception in plugin MySQL: NSInvalidArgumentException (-[__NSCFDictionary setObject:forKey:]: attempt to insert nil value (key: MySQLError)) Service MySQL MySQL

I have checked that the connection / query works, since I tested it with remote SQL in Sequel Pro.

Any way to solve this?

Re: Error in MySQL service: Exception in plugin MySQL: ...

That seems to be a bug in the MySQL feature. I'm not aware of a workaround, but it is at the top of my list for fixing in the next release. Sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime!
