It's been a little under a month since MilkSync for Microsoft Outlook was released and we've received a bunch of great feedback — thanks! :)

The one thing we've heard loud and clear is that support for 64-bit versions of Outlook was something a lot of people wanted. Bob's been working his magic again, and we're happy to announce that version 1.0.11 of MilkSync now supports 64-bit Outlook.

While Bob had his MilkSync hat on, he snuck in a couple of other things into the update…

Localization updates

We love making MilkSync available in as many languages as possible. This version adds localization for Chinese (Simplified), Dutch, German and Polish. Interested in helping to make MilkSync available in your language? We'd really appreciate any help — please check out our online translation program.

Bug fixes and enhancements

We've also taken the opportunity to include some other small enhancements and fixes in this release:

  • Fix issue with syncing non-English tags/categories.
  • Fix issue with syncing notes that begin with '. '.
  • Fix issue with syncing some tags causing sync to get stuck at 83%.
  • Fix issue with installer not finding Outlook due to user permissions issues.
  • Fix issue with errors related to 'Addin Express' on Outlook start up.

How do I get this update?

MilkSync will automatically check for and install this update. If you'd like to manually check for this update, just:

  1. Right-click the Remember The Milk icon in your Windows System Tray.
  2. Select About and check the status at the bottom of the dialog.

I'm new to MilkSync, and I want some syncing goodness!

Head on over to the MilkSync for Microsoft Outlook page, where you'll find more info about the app as well as the all-important download link. If you don't have a Pro account yet, you'll be able to try the app free for 15 days (just download it and start syncing to begin your trial :).

Happy syncing!
