Preview 8 is now out, and with it, all the issues that have been reported should now be solved!

Specifically Preview 8 fixes a difficult to reproduce but nasty problem where the sqlite database on the iPhone could be corrupted.

iTunes 9, Fw 3.1.1

Thanks for the has72.exe bug reports. I managed to reproduce the problem, and spent 7 hours last night up to my neck in c++ for the first time in a while! I've fixed the problem, and moved as much of the future potential-problem code (file read/write/locking) into managed code. Its now faster and much more reliable :)

As I was finishing up (and feeling pretty good about the hash72 stuff), I updated to firmware 3.1.1. For the most part, SharePod still works, but the Sqlite databases on the iPod have changed sufficiently that its going to take several more hours of work before I can release the next (and hopefully final) Preview version.

Talk about bad timing, and really soul-destoying at 3am!

Preview 4

Preview 4 is available for download. It should fix the 'An item with the same key has already been added' error!

If you have a problem please let me know what you were doing and attach your sharepod.log file.

EDIT: Preview4 has been re-released to fix a stupid bug added just before release. Please download the zip file again. In the readme, it will say Preview 4 - 4 September instead of 3 September.

Thanks to everyone who submitted bug reports. Much appreciated.

Theres one major outstanding issue as far as I know with Preview 3 (the "An item with the same key has already been added" message).

Preview 4 will fix it, but lol unfortunately my cat bit through my last working usb cable this morning so haven't been able to test it. Will pick up another one today and hope to release Preview 4 tomorrow morning!
