Event Date Not Updating After Original Sync (#3539)
Issues with syncing events should be resolved in the next release. Thanks for your patience.
unable to sync (#3616 and #3762)
Excellent news Wayne. Thanks for the update. The engineering team has been working hard to make sync as seamless and reliable as possible.
Deleting brains
Thanks for the bug reports and suggestions. The issue of not being able to delete a remote brain when there is no local copy has already been addressed for the next release. We are also aware of the server error that is sometimes happening when the remote deletion is attempted.

Unfortunately there are still many issues with the web client and it is not yet ready for serious use.

Offline license activation
Hi James,

Please contact support@thebrain.com and someone will be happy to help you get your V8 registration working. As V9 is still in beta, we are still working out how we will handle offline registration.

TheBrain 9.0.167

This version includes a major update to the syncing process that should makes it much more reliable. It also enables you to check on the sync status of your brain by clicking the small triangle next to the sync icon, which will now tell you if there are changes to be sent/received.

As part of these sync improvements, we have disabled syncing to the server from older versions of the client, so please upgrade ASAP. Thanks!

Using web link to mobile Wikipedia article instead of to main article
I gather we are not supposed to edit it ourselves. If anyone here would like to volunteer, that would be great.

Error on starting Brain 9
Just to be clear, those instructions will delete all your data and should never be used unless that is what you are trying to do. (For example if you wanted to start with a clean install for some reason.)

As Zenrain said, TheBrain will work fine with indexing off but search will not be able to find anything inside of notes and attachments. We will add an option to disable this warning in a future release.

Don't bother trying to hack it. It's not that simple to do unfortunately. We'll be addressing this issue soon. If you need it sooner we could setup a web meeting with you and do it remotely or maybe send you instructions.
