Syncthing v1.18.6 -- or not!

So I was going to release 1.18.6 according to schedule, but noticed that due to some unexplained fuckup we actually never released 1.18.6-rc.1, so there was no RC cycle. I mean, I tagged and it and built it and then … got distracted? I don’t know.

Given that, I’m instead releasing a 1.18.6-rc.2 today to let it bake a while, before promoting to actual release a bit later in the cycle than usual. Ah well.

Oh and this Windows release will still be unsigned because getting a certificate for a Swedish foundation turned out to be a huge pain in the ass, because it’s not a company in the usual sense and not present in any of the expected registries used for verification…


Having dealt with code signing at work…my god is that concept broken. And don’t get me started on the process of obtaining/renewal.

I’m eternally thankful for what LetsEncrypt did for server certificates.


Is there any update on this?

Indeed there is! The certificate is in place as of the other day; too late to sign the recent RC, but the next release and so on will be signed.
