  1. I’m confused. Is this release different from last month’s 5.0.2 release or is this just a late announcement.

    I’m really looking forward to 5.0.3 since it is hopefully supposed to fix a bug preventing me from creating new Syncs.

  2. There seems to be a bug on all my desktop installs, where it stalls at “Waiting to receive initial updates from server”. Searched all over and didn’t find any remedy… any advice much appreciated.

  3. Yeah, I’m stuck on “Action – Save Backup Selection” on all PCs I have. Can’t find the download link for 5.0.3.

  4. Version 5.0.2 in Linux does not allow me to add new directories to syncs. Anyone know how to fix this bug?

  5. I have the same problem with waiting for initial updates from server on Win 7. I just installed 5.0.2 (it uninstalled previous installation) hoping that would help but it didn’t. I’m glad I didn’t pay for this
