Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

It appears that the {TestLastRecoveryTime} and {TestLastRecoveryDate} variables do not report the correct time and date. This is running 2.2 on a G4 10.4.8.

Re: new variables

They may not be correct if the test has never had a recovery.

I had set up a recovery

I had set up a recovery email, so I assume that a recovery triggers the email.
