Summary of enhancements and new functionality
On Demand Sync has been removed
With On Demand Sync, document placeholders appeared on users’ desktops instead of the actual files; if a user clicked on a placeholder, the document associated with it was downloaded and opened. With this release the placeholders will be replaced with the actual documents they represent. When syncing occurs, documents will be copied to the users’ desktops. For existing exchanges, if placeholders are missing on the desktop, the corresponding documents will be downloaded from the exchange on the web; the documents on the web will not be deleted. This change was made to ensure the reliability of syncing between the web and the desktop.
Zero-byte files are no longer created when On Demand Sync is turned off. These files caused errors to appear and syncing to fail.
