Version 188.8.131.52 (outdated)
- When creating folders in SharePoint libraries, an error occurred stating that the property "CheckOutType" has not been loaded. "The property or field 'CheckOutType' has not been initialized..."
- Optimized error handling and reporting for unexpected Windows Service termination.
- When accessing SharePoint libraries with versioning enabled and no enforced checkout, one upload has created four different new versions. This could lead to unexpected quota exceedance and issues with workflows and notifications. Now two new versions are created, one for the file upload and one for the metadata updates. Due to limitations with CSOM it is still not possible to create one new version only.
- In some cases while updating data on SharePoint a NullReferenceException was triggered.
- The settings of the FILENAME filter of the File System Provider included filtering of directory names. Now directory names are no longer filtered.
- The Odata Provider created an error when a value could not bee parsed. This has been replaced with a warning and using of the default value.
- Creating appointments on Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 could result in an error about the StartTimeZone-field not being loaded.
- Pro Edition now allows Enterprise Edition features starting with January 2015. Customers with Pro Edition and valid Software Assurance have a free upgrade option.
- If SharePoint returns a "Request too big" error, the current server objects will be loaded and updated one by one automatically.
- Minor memory leaks fixed.

- Shareware restrictions have been adjusted.
- Logging to the Windows Eventlog or to email will no longer create multiple entries for a single error.
- The setup files are now signed to avoid warnings.
- The default log configuration now contains examples to use Windows Event Log instead of file log and send email alerts in case of issues.
- Layer2 Data Provider for Exchange: When reading appointments in some cases the Exchange Web Service would return the error "The recurrence pattern’s FirstDayOfWeek property must be specified".
- When Exchange returns with a ErrorInternalServerTransientError, the Layer2 Exchange Data Provider will automatically retry to load the remaining items.
- The "Email" connection-string parameter for mailbox-impersonation has not been recognized. Now fixed. Changes:
