R#41180 Highlighting of object in the history view
When the history view is opened from the context menu of an object version, that object version will now appear outlined in bold in the history view.

R#41697 Project specific patterns to ignore
It is now possible to specify additional "ignore patterns" for an individual project, allowing the specification of a set of regular expressions to be ignored by the sync work area operation. To use this feature, create a controlled file called "synergy_ignore_file_pattern.txt" in the root directory of the project. This file will be read using the UTF-8 encoding. The syntax of this file is the same as the syntax used in the GUI Options dialog to define patterns to be ignored.

R#41695 Project grouping based on release component
The "group by" option in the projects explorer in the Synergy GUI now allows project groupings to be grouped by release.

R#41736 Synergy GUI to allow empty string for the Server field in login dialog
It is now possible to leave the Server field in the Synergy GUI startup dialog blank. Doing so will result in the Synergy GUI starting up in web mode, and using the default server, as determined by the Synergy router.

R#41822 Support Synergy 7.1 running on SLES 11 SP1 64-bit
