I wanted to send out a quick follow-up notification to our users – alerting
you all that we will be performing a schedule maintenance/upgrade for 4 hours
on Friday the 6th from 2 pm to 6 pm CST. It is important to note that this
outage will not effect all of our users; however, those that are effected will
lose connection to the SpiderOak servers. This downtime will not have any
consequence on the security or integrity of your data; rather, the upload
process will stop and then resume as soon as the connection is
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding and we do
apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you find the timing to be a
problem, please don’t hesitate to contact us immediately at
Very best wishes,
The SpiderOak Team
Last week we released the 1.4x series builds of SpiderOak out of beta.
Download here. Existing installs
on Windows and OS X should self-update, and the newest Linux packages are in
the apt. Most users seem to have upgraded already.
In addition to many internal improvements, users are likely to notice a huge
responsiveness and speed boost: we estmiate 4x faster than the predecessor.
There’s also several new command line options, and SpiderOak now supports
backup queues larger than physical memory, so go ahead and install on machines
with hundreds of thousands of files.
A new web feature you may have noticed: each SpiderOak share room now has an
associated RSS feed which will indicate when items in a share room are changed
or updated with newer versions. So, for example, everytime you add new
pictuers to a shared folder, or you make changes and a new version of a
document in one of your shared folders is archived, subscribers to the RSS feed
will automatically notice without you having to do anything extra.
See the complete release
notes for more information.
