Removing duplicated contacts

Unfortunately, Google Contacts is not stable enough yet and sometimes creates many duplicates. As a workaround for the issue, I've added a function to remove duplicates. Please note it is an experimental function. Try Google's one first and then, if Google cannot remove them, try Google Contacts.

The function checks primary email, second email and display name. If all of them are the same among some contacts, they are recognized as duplicates and removed. It is available in v0.6.40b4. Again, please try it carefully.

Invoke the function from drop down menu of toolbar icon

Google Contact 0.6.39 and 0.6.40beta

New Google Contacts are available: v0.6.39 and v0.6.40beta. As I posted before, Google Contacts has a problem in photo sync. So, I decided to release v0.6.39 before finishing work for freezing problem. It will be addressed in v0.6.40.

Unfortunately, after I released v0.6.39, a bug was found in a group sync; it was reported by some users as Ticket-80 in Issue Tracking System. It was fixed in v0.6.40b1 and later. But v0.6.40 includes modifications for the performance issue and need more test. So, please use it carefully if you use v0.6.40beta and please let me know if you find a problem.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Freezing problem of Google Contacts

I've received many reports about freezing of Google Contacts. But it is very hard to find a problem and fix it because I don't have huge amount of contacts as you have. I've tried to go one step forward this issue in v0.6.39 and the first beta is available now.

Please try it and let me know the result.
