Microsoft releases new version of ActiveSync

Microsoft released ActiveSync 3.8 yesterday, a successor to the 3.7.1 version. There are very few specifics about the new version; here is the overview posted on Microsoft’s site:

“Microsoft ActiveSync 3.8 is the latest synchronization software for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs and Smartphones. ActiveSync 3.8 contains fixes making synchronization more trouble free than ever before and includes all the significant improvements brought to you in ActiveSync 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7.1: it is easy to install and use while offering the best levels of reliability.”

The download is 3,871Kb and requires Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows NT Workstation 4.0 with SP6 or later, or Windows 98. In my experience, each version of ActiveSync has become better and more stable than the last. To download this new version for your PocketPC, Windows Mobile or SmartPhone device, visit the Microsoft download site.
