To further muddy the waters, the two projects have merged back
together. I think. From the wikipedia page:


"On 20th June 2010, a Synergy+ project leader requested that the
Synergy+ project take over the original project [7] under the
SourceForge.net Abandoned Project Takeover (APT) system. The owner of
the Synergy project (Chris Schoeneman) denied this request two days
later. However, this led to the two projects merging two months later,
at which point a new website was created under the original Synergy
project name."
