Syncthing v0.14.19


This is a regularly scheduled bugfix and improvement release recommended for all users.

Resolved issues

  • #3846: Changing bandwidth rate limits now takes effect immediately without restart.
  • #3859: The event log (-audit) can now be directed to stderr for piping into another program.
  • #3584: A panic on folder listing at startup has been fixed.
  • #3857: On Windows, we now make sure to never descend into directory symlinks.
  • #3819: When a folder is deleted, the .stfolder marker is also removed. The ignore file and .stversions directory are retained, if present.
  • #3839: Several scenarios where a device would get stuck with “not a directory” errors are now handled again.
  • #3861: Third party copyrights in the about box are now more up to date.


Hashing performance has been improved again, after it was inadvertently reduced in v0.14.17.


The issue #3839 seems to be there but with a new twist. That error changed it is error output to “The system cannot find the file specified”. They are not files they are directories btw, even though it is complainign about a file . The reason I am saying it transformed because those are the exact same folders that Syncthing was complainign about not being a directory. Basically those were some folders moved up one folder up in the chain they st started complaining about them.

If you can come up with a repro open a new issue.

Thank you!
