Is there anything in the Sync Framework 2.1 that benefits non-SQL sync scenarios? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're currently using the Sync Framework 2.0 to sync between a FileSyncProvider and a custom FullEnumerationSimpleSyncProvider.

    Are there any benefits to upgrading to 2.1? The release notes seem to only mention features that are for SQL sync scenarios. Are there any general performance improvements or bug fixes?

  • afaik, none. at least based on the documentation, the release notes and a cursory inspection of the assemblies.

    on another note, the FileSyncProvider assembly has a new filename: FileSyncProvider21.dll and the metadata store format has also been upgraded (there is now a 2.1 format), but am not sure if there's something significant change that would have otherwise warrant a mention at least in the release notes or the docs.
