AeroFS Release Notes

Please note: Android release notes may be found in the Android Store.

AeroFS releases prior to Dec 4th are all "Hybrid Cloud" Releases. Post Dec 4th, a new release will be tagged -private for Private Cloud release, and -hybrid for Hybrid Cloud release.

Because we develop software off of a unified code base, a private cloud release will contain features that were applied to a previous hybrid cloud release, and a hybrid cloud release will similarly contain features that were applied to a previous private cloud release. For example, 0.4.253-private (released Dec 6th, is an incremental release over 0.4.251-hybrid and contains all of 0.4.251-hybrid's new features as well)
