This site is in german and as far as i can "read", it has not been updated yet with this new release.
Here are my first observation with this update :
- the icon for sharepoint subsites sync has been changed
- it seems that the synchronisation for external users is on its way (it does not work on my PC, but the sync wizard is going one step further)
Has anyone got more informations ?

Version 17.3.6705.1122 changelog is here: https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/New-OneDrive-sync-client-release-notes-845dcf18-f921-435e-b...
It is very confusing that the same version number is listed both as a preview version and as an apparent production version, with different features and fixes!
Moreover, current installations of production version are not automatically upgraded, and remain at version 17.3.6517.0809, while the new version (17.3.6705.1122) is downloadable only from the preview page!
What a mess!!!
Can someone at MS shed some light?

I write most of my blog posts in two languages, so now you have both versions online

Thank you Hans...
I still miss the external user TeamSite Sync feature... I hope this will be available soon.

not all, but more then in earlier Versions, are automaticall updated. This is done by Microsoft. So I have also one PC from a diffrent Office 365 tenant, that is still on 0809
12-08-2016 07:30 AM
Is there any "official" download way of the new client (17.3.6705.1122) or is the only way to wait until Microsoft decides when "my" client is updated or visit Hans Brenders page and download it from there?

Also, shouldn't the OneDrive.exe automatically take over the Groove.exe? It says so here: "When you sign in to the new OneDrive sync client (OneDrive.exe), the new OneDrive sync client automatically takes over syncing the sites libraries that the previous OneDrive for Business sync client (Groove.exe) was syncing."

Again, Microsoft makes it confusing... having the same version number on two different versions.
12-08-2016 08:35 AM
For the sake of clarity: are you saying that, on some machines, production version 17.3.6517.0809 (i.e. without the preview registry key) has been automatically upgraded to a newer version? Indeed?
12-08-2016 12:37 PM
It looks confusing.
You have to do something manually, setting a registry key,.... then you are able to sync
but without that, then you use this version as a Released Version
or see here

OK, so it seems like there is only one version of 17.3.6705.1122. I've compared all the downloads I could find:
With Microsoft's FIle Checksum Integrity Verifier (fciv.exe) here, they all return the same checksum:
But I guess all clients and tenants will be updated eventually automatically whenever Microsoft think it's time.
However, on the Microsoft instructions cause some confusion for me at least. It says:
If you are currently syncing sites and libraries using the previous OneDrive sync client (Groove.exe), then this preview automatically takes over syncing those sites libraries.
But then just a few lines later they have instructions to "To set up team site sync using the OneDrive for Business Next Generation Sync Client" which means adding the registry key.
So it seems like it will automatically fix sites and libraries but you have to manually put the registry key for team sites. Correct? In that case I didn't realize they were two different things.

you step into the preview version, lets say mode, when you enter tke registry key.
Then you are able to sync more....
But st tuis time, there is no automatic
you have to go to with your Browser (best, take no Microsoft Browser] to
the Teamsite or Group or Shared with me
navigate to the document library... Look for the Sync Button: Press Sync
A Popup window will ask, what you want to sync (Selective sync)
thats for new one.
This time, there is no AUTOMATIC process, to replace the Groove.exe sync with NGSC.
the issue for Microsoft is:
They are not able to replace an old version of the Groove.exe with the newest one. You have to install the update manually or use WSUS. The newest version is prepared for an automatic process. But the current verion of the NGSC 1122 is not ready for the fully automate process.
NGSC an Updates:
NGSC always look 1 time a day for a never version.
NGSC is not using ans existing Update like WSUS or C2R
Perhaps you have heard about the ring system.
And therefore Microsoft is able to say: No we want to have a broader rollout, but not all.
Therefore some systems are still having NGSC version 0809 and will not receive an update
So you may do an update manually, going to version 1122
There is still no GA for the NGSC

The current build / version (.1122) suddenly stopped signing in successfully. Restarts (client and pc) won't help, type of internet connection and bandwidth do not matter.
The client constantly says "connecting to ..."
Anyone experiencing the same?
I had the registry (preview mode) enabled.

I have had this issue last week, ...
If I stopped sync for some minutes, restart it, It never comes back
same isssue, when my Surface goes into Sleep-Modus...
But now it works (and it is still the same version .1122)

Have you tried to remove the Onedrive-credential from Windows' Credential Manager?

I've seen a newer reelase today. 6720 i think it was. on a computer that had the non-preview release installed previously.
