Why do developers even bother with version numbers anymore? It's not like they actually MEAN much nowadays.
Version 3.0.3 will be followed by 3.0.7 or something and then that will be followed by 3.1.1 a few days later and so forth ad infinitum. The real problem is - it's pretty much all bug fixes and not actual improvements to the program itself. Although, technically a bug fix IS an improvement I guess. The fact remains it is a chicken**** way to release software.

How about let's go back to the days when you didn't RELEASE software until it was considered READY?

I am sick to death of installing a program only to see a "new version" a few days later with hardly any noticeable difference. And very few of these guys provide for an in-place upgrade or patch-style installation. Oh no! You must first uninstall the previous version and install the new one.

I know people are going to say "but this means the programmers are more responsive and reactive and this is better quality programming and ... blah blah blah." I think the reverse is actually true. I believe programmers and software companies in general are a great deal lazier and sloppier than they ever were before. They just don't seem to care if they get it right because they know they will be releasing a new version in a very short time.

This is not an indictment against filezilla - I love the program. I am just tired of having to install a new version every week.

I know what you mean. FileZilla has always been guilty of TOO frequent updates. A bigger update every month or two would be far better.

Does this still have anything to make it better than the old 2.2.32 (or something like that) version? My experiences with the 3.x.x versions have been that they corrupt uploads and don't have the View/Edit option. They do have a pretty icon though.

i think the best is still FlashFXP hands down. cause it just works and it's interface is perfect.

plus it has FXP transfers (site to site) and SSL etc etc.

but FileZilla is probably one of the best FREE ftp clients
