Syncthing upgrade from v0.12 to v0.13 on freebsd


I am running syncthing on 3 nodes (2 windows PCs and 1 Freebsd file server). I upgraded syncthing on windows PCs fine to v0.13. Clicked on the notification in the GUI to upgrade to v0.13 and it was fine but I dont see the notification on the Freebsd GUI.

On all 3 systems, I just downloaded the syncthing binary and just ran it manually. I did not use the packaged version from Freebsd repository. Up until now, even the Freebsd version upgraded automatically, but for some reason not doing it for v0.13 ( from v0.12). What is the process to upgrade the Freebsd version to v0.13?

  • can I just replace v0.12 binary with v0.13 binary?

Thanks! Vyala

Yes, just replacing the binary works. Automatic upgrades from old versions of 0.12 were broken at some point.

Thank Audrius! Replacing the binary files worked perfectly.
