Accordance 12.1 for Windows and Macintosh is now available as a free upgrade for Accordance 12 users! Select App Update from the Utilities menu (Windows) or the Accordance menu (Mac) to update. Keep reading to find out about changes in Accordance 12.1!
Syncing of User Content
Accordance 12.1 is a significant update, although a lot of the changes are “under the hood.” The greatest change in Accordance 12.1 relates to Dropbox, which Accordance users employ to sync user content. Dropbox is discontinuing their current API at the end of June, 2017. Therefore, Accordance users need to upgrade to v. 12.1 if they want to sync content after this time.
Any Windows Vista, 7, 8, or 10 user who is currently running Accordance 10, 11, or 12 should not have any problems running Accordance 12.1, but as mentioned on our System Requirements page, XP is not supported by Microsoft any longer.
Mac users should note that Accordance 12.1 requires Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or higher, and syncing using the new Dropbox API will require OS X 10.10 Yosemite or higher.
Users with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard can still download Accordance 12.0.6 from our Accordance Installers page
Mac OS, Dropbox, and Accordance after June 2017
OS X 10.10 Yosemite through macOS 10.13 High Sierra need to upgrade Accordance to 12.1 to continue syncing with Dropbox.
Mac OS X 10.7 Lion through OS 10.9 Mavericks can upgrade Accordance to 12.1 but will no longer sync with Dropbox.
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard cannot upgrade Accordance past 12.0.6.
Other Improvements in Accordance 12.1
Both Macintosh and Windows versions of Accordance 12.1 include better font rendering, and Accordance 12.1 for the Mac is now fully 64 bit. Of course, there are plenty of other improvements; but as already mentioned, most of these are internal to the Accordance code itself. For a complete list of improvements, see our New Features since 12.0 page.
