In the SymmetricDS 3.9 release, many user interface changes have been made to improve usability and display more information. One area of focus for these improvements are within the Incoming and Outgoing Batch screens. These changes provide a cleaner and more uniform representation of the data displayed on both screens.

SymmetricDS has supported syncing data to and from Android SQLite databases for some time now. But with the 3.8 series, we now also have support for pushing and pulling files from your Android devices. This could be useful to collect things like signature files captured on the device, log files, or to push files down to your devices as well. Maybe you have a company materials you want to make available offline for instance. Whatever your use case, SymmetricDS now supports bi-directional file sync on the Android platform.
