This release changes the default location for the index database under
some circumstances. Two new flags can also be used to affect the
location of the configuration (
-config) and database (
separately. The old
-home flag is equivalent to setting both of these
to the same directory. When no flags are given the following logic is
used to determine the data location:
- If a database exists in the old default location, that location is still used. This means existing installations are not affected by this change.
$XDG_DATA_HOMEis set, use
~/.local/share/syncthingexists, use that location.
- Use the old default location.
This logic is used on non-Windows, non-Mac platforms only. On Windows and Mac the logic is unchanged.
