Recent changes:

1.1 (03-May-2010)

- Now uses OS4.1 Update 1's URL handler instead of
- Fixed all warnings with the latest SDK
- You can now sort by name, size or date (suggested
by Mario Cattaneo).
- When copying multiple files, the overwrite/resume
requester now also offers "Overwrite All", "Skip"
and "Skip All" where appropriate (suggested by
Heiko Gyrok).
- Uses built-in scrollwheel support instead of a
custom IDCMP hook.

1.0 (14-Oct-2009)

- Exclusive OS4.1 Update 1 CD release
- No longer beta
- Now theres a checkbox to disable passive mode
for servers that don't support it. Previously
we tried to detect servers and switch automatically
(which we still do), but it wasn't perfect, so
now you can force it. Thanks to nexus on AW.net
for pointing it out.
- When attempting to upload a file to an FTP server,
it now properly copes with permission denied errors.
Also reports it in the error log window.
- Now hides newly opened browser windows until their
final position and size has been calculated.
- Fixed date calculations when using a non-english
system locale (thanks to Philippe Ferrucci for the
- FINALLY fixed the mysterious stalling bugs
(thanks to everyone who reported it, and especially
Kicko for bugging me about it and being such a
helpful tester).
- Added CHMOD support (I think spotUP asked for this)
- No longer leaves any images locked (thanks to
Jahc and anyone else who reported this).
- Now has its own image set (thanks Mason)! If you want
it to use AISS instead, add "USE_AISS=Yes" to the
- If the server responds to a PASV command with the
IP address, PFTP now uses the server address
instead (thanks to Jahc).
- If you have an FTP server with maximum connections set
to more than the FTP site will allow, it'll reduce
the maximum connections as and when logins fail. Note
that it is better to set this value correctly in the
first place to avoid spamming the server with logins.
- If you connect to a server without an "initial local
directory" set, it no longer resets an adjacent local
browser to the volume list (thanks to Mario Cattaneo).
- Copes better with 451 server errors when attempting
to retrieve files (thanks to Janne Per?aho).
- You can now specify a screenmode. NOTE: You have to
quit / restart for the change to take effect.
- You can now optionally disable compositing on the PFTP
screen to save ram. Again, a quit/restart is required.
- Whole new icon and image set created by Mason (thanks!)
- Now uses "LIST -a" instead of just "LIST" (thanks to
Andy Broad and Joerg Strohmayer for the suggestion).

 Re: Pete's FTP v1.1 released!
Thanks mate :)

Too bad just that my mediaplayer "Xstreamer" FTP server sucks when renaming/deleteing etc. But thats not your apps fault.So i use pftp to only send files to it. And if i want to delete/rename i just use the webinterface.

pftp looks and feels great

 Re: Pete's FTP v1.1 released!

Thanks for the update!

Would it be possible to add an option to replace a file only when the one to be copied is newer?

 Re: Pete's FTP v1.1 released!
a feature i love in filezilla is if you right click a document,
you get an option to edit it in your favourite editor,
and when you save it in the editor filezilla uploads the new file to the server, this is a nice way to make small changes to web sites.
i would love to be able to use pftp like this.

It's normal that mouse-wheel does not works for me in PFTP (but works in OWB for example) ?

Mouse wheel should work in PFTP (and does perfectly here).

 Re: Pete's FTP v1.1 released!
I just run it, chancel first window with my connections, going to Work: (where is many files, and they all not fits in all the window), and just try to scroll wheel: nothing changes.

Maybe i need set some settings in WB ? (but in OWB it works through ..)

The mouse wheel doesn't work here, too (Sam 440ep, OS4.1 Upd2)
But, that's not so bad. The essential for me was the other new functions. Hope you find the reason and fix it or can help us anyhow.

There seems to be a problem with AmiUpdate recognizing when pftp has been updated. (It keeps reporting that a new version is available.)

The date from the version string did not match the date from the database. I have since corrected this, so the problem should be fixed.
