OmniPresence for Mac 1.5

October 17, 2016

Requires OS X 10.11

Version 1.5 — Monday, October 13, 2016

OmniPresence 1.5 disables syncing for folders currently saved to locations that can be synced via another sync mechanism (using two synchronization services on the same document can result in data loss).

OmniPresence 1.5 requires Mac OS X v10.11 or later.

  • Unsupported Synced Folder Locations — In order to avoid potential data loss, OmniPresence 1.5 detects the location of synced folders and automatically disables sync for folders currently saved to unsupported locations. To re-enable syncing for these folders, open the OmniPresence menu and follow the prompts to move the synced folder to a supported location.
  • Unsupported Synced Folder Locations — The user Desktop and Documents folders are now considered unsupported synced folder locations by OmniPresence as these folders can be synchronized via iCloud Drive on macOS Sierra.
  • Unsupported Synced Folder Locations — The default synced folders created by Amazon Drive, Box Sync, Google Drive, OneDrive, and SpiderOak Hive are now considered unsupported synced folder locations by OmniPresence.
  • Setup — The user home folder is now the default location for newly configured sync folders.
  • Help — The in-app OmniPresence Help, which can be accessed via the sprocket in the OmniPresence menu, has been fully rewritten.

OmniPresence for Mac 1.4.1

December 1, 2015

Requires OS X 10.10

OmniPresence v1.4.1 requires Mac OS X v10.10 or later.

Version 1.4.1 – Tuesday, December 1, 2015

  • Crash — Avoid a crash when there are unexpected errors selecting a folder for the sync location.

OmniPresence for Mac 1.4

May 14, 2015

Requires OS X 10.10

OmniPresence v1.4 improves setup and stability. This version requires OS X Yosemite (10.10) or later.

Version 1.4 — Monday, May 11, 2015

  • Crash — Fixed a crash that could happen when launching OmniPresence by opening a omnipresence-config file.
  • Crash — Fixed a potential crash when closing the About panel.
  • Crash — Fixed a rare crash when doing a software update check.
  • Crash — Fixed a crash when attempting to sync with a WebDAV server that doesn’t return ETag values.
  • Setup — When performing WebDAV conformance checks, retry tests that fail due to timeout a few times. This should help configuring OmniPresence when the link to your server is slow.
  • Setup — We no longer clear your previously entered credentials during setup if you opt to retry a failed conformance test (possibly due to timing out).
  • Logging — Fixed repeated archiving of “Archived bookmark data was flagged as stale…” messages.

OmniPresence for Mac 1.3

March 4, 2015

Requires OS X 10.10

OmniPresence v1.3 improves sync performance and error handling. This version requires OS X Yosemite (10.10) or later.

  • Performance — Improved use of previous redirects during WebDAV operations to avoid extra round trips with the server.
  • Login Item — Fixed a problem where the “Open at Login” support would attempt to launch the copy of OmniPresence in the trash after a software update.
  • Error Handling — Fixed a data loss bug that could occur rarely if the sandboxing system starts denying access to portions of your synchronized folder.
  • Error Handling — Fixed a problem where the menu item would sometimes not show an error indicator when one of the synchronized folders couldn’t be synchronized.
  • Setup — OmniPresence will no longer let you put one synchronized folder inside another.
  • Last Sync — The “Last Sync” date should no longer say “None” when launched.
  • Server Clean-Up — OmniPresence now cleans up old versions of files on the server in some cases it didn’t before.

OmniPresence for Mac 1.2

October 29, 2014

Requires OS X 10.9

OmniPresence 1.2 for Mac has been updated to work better on Yosemite, and also improves the handling of conflicting edits across devices.


  • Yosemite interface — Updated the app interface and the icons for synced folders to look more at home on Yosemite.
  • Yosemite Dark Mode — Updated the menu bar icon to display properly when using Yosemite’s Dark Mode, and updated the main window’s appearance to be more usable in dark mode.


  • Auto-Sync — Made auto-syncing happen more reliably when changes are synced to the same cloud location from another device on the same network.


  • Error Handling — If too many attempts are made to transfer a file, OmniPresence will now pause syncing and offer to report the error.
  • Conflicts — OmniPresence no longer permanently renames files when there is a conflict. Instead, each client locally renames the files and doesn’t send those renames to the server (which could cause extra conflicts in heavy usage cases). If you rename one of the files that is in conflict, that file gets renamed on the server as well and other clients will see that name. If there is only one version of a file left in conflict (maybe you deleted the other conflicting versions or renamed them to something else), OmniPresence will rename it back to the original user-specified name.
  • Spurious conflicts — Fixed an issue where OmniPresence would treat an interrupted network connection as a failure, and if it turns out the operation actually succeeded it would treat that as a conflict (since it didn’t think it made that change itself). This should make syncing much more reliable when syncing over slow (or distant) networks.
  • Simultaneous setup — OmniPresence conformance tests will no longer fail when more than one device is performing those tests at the same time.
  • Open at Login — Fixed some cases where the “Open at Login” menu item wouldn’t work properly.
  • Crash — Fixed a crash that could happen when updating the settings for a cloud location.
