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.

{TestLastChangeTime} always sends "19:00:00"

For some reason, the {TestLastChangeTime} notifier variable is always sending a constant time, "19:00:00". It doesn't matter what time it actually is, that's always the time that appears in the notifier email.

Any ideas?

Re: {TestLastChangeTime} always sends "19:00:00"

This variable is the time that the test last had a change. If you don't have Smart Change Detection enabled, or it hasn't changed for a while (e.g. has only failed and recovered), the value wouldn't change.

You might want to consider using {TestLastEventTime} instead; it outputs the time of a change, failure, or recovery.
