OpenSync is a synchronization framework which provides a synchronization service for PIM data. Generally it consists of the library libopensync, various plugins and the cli msynctool/osynctool.


The OpenSync project provides a stable release, currently version 0.22, and a unstable/experimental release 0.3x, currently latest is version 0.39. Project access via SVN is also possible. A release date for the next stable release, version 0.40, is not yet announced.


Generally a mixture of different version numbers should be avoided especially between the stable and experimental releases. A version 0.22 plugin insists version 0.22 libopensync and a version 0.39 plugin should joined with the corresponding unstable library version. Since not every version step provides all available plugins, your choosen version of libopensync may depend on your plugin needs.
