Eraserhead - that's a separate issue, which I know the engineers are working on as well. Keep an eye on the sneakypeeks over the weekend.
The only reliable WevDAV synch for the desktop app for me so far has been locally + dyndns BUT iPhone can't synch... I get a "timed out" error every time... :'(

Actually, after deleting, starting from a clean backup - OF, the latest desktop version seems to be working with most WebDAV options I have available, but the iPhone version is stuck on similar bugs the desktop version had before...

Hopefully an iPhone update will come soon :)

Thanks, I'll keep an eye on it.
SP 102775 still seems to have the "404" problem.
The 404 problem should be resolved in r102781:

Fixed another sync incompatibility with cPanel WebDAV servers (such as those hosted by

The fundamental issue we've been facing is that cPanel doesn't preserve the names of files uploaded by the client, so when OmniFocus goes back to look for something it isn't where it put it. (In fact, if you try to browse to those files using a web browser you'll find that they can't download them either.)

We've hopefully worked around this by tracking the WebDAV URL independently from the transaction name, so we can use the URL when we need to fetch data from the server but use the original transaction name when deciding how that data fits together.

Please note that the iPhone version 1.0 of OmniFocus doesn't yet have these fixes; they'll be in version 1.0.1.

When is that lovely 1.0.1 likely to come out?

When is the new iPhone app update coming?

It would have to be before my MobileMe free trial ends, because I am definitely not paying for that piece of crap. Apple's making people lose a lot of money right now.
I'm not sure how long Apple's review process will take, but my hope is that the 1.0.1 update will be posted sometime this week.
Judging by the amount of time it's taking for Apple to move and create MobileMe accounts on their servers, we can probably expect an app store update within the next decade.
