Possible to upgrade past version 1.3.0 ?

I installed the plugin a couple of days ago and the version reports as being v1.3.0, FreeBSD (64 bit)

On all my other instances of Syncthing (linux windows synology) it almost immediately updates itself to 1.3.4, however this does not.

I just wondered if there was a way to get this up to date, or if 1.3.0 is the latest available version for freenas (freebsd).

Does the person who packages this plugin ever visit these forums? If not is there a better place to ask such questions?

Same question. Syncthing release is now v1.5.0. Is there an upgrade path planned for the plugin? The port is currently at v1.4.0.

Jails set themselves to the quarterly PKG repository. (which currently shows that it has 1.4.0)

You need to create /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD.conf inside the jail and set the contents to

Code:
FreeBSD: {
  url: "pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/${ABI}/latest",
  mirror_type: "srv",
  signature_type: "fingerprints",
  fingerprints: "/usr/share/keys/pkg",
  enabled: yes
}


and run
pkg update
pkg upgrade

If you want to get the latest version ASAP.

At this time, it seems the latest port is still 1.4.0, so you will not see any newer version by making that change right now.

There's nothing stopping you from installing the latest FreeBSD version in a custom jail.

I was looking at the syncthing web site and on the downloads page there is a FreeBSD tarball. I downloaded it and unpacked it to see what was in it, and it appeared that Syncthing is a single binary. Do you think that just ssbing into the Syncthing jail and replacing the syncthing binary with the one from the tarball would work. The tarball doesn't appear to be compiling or linking anything, so that makes me think the the binary is totally stand alone.

Thoughts on this?
