FileZilla 3.2.8

FileZilla is powerful Open Source FTP/SFTP client with many features. It includes a site manager to store all your connection details and logins as well as an Explorer style interface that shows the local and remote folders and can be customized independently. The program offers support for firewalls and proxy connections as well as SSL and Kerberos GSS security. Additional features include keep alive, auto ascii/binary transfer, download queue, manual transfers, raw FTP commands and more.

    New features:
  • Remember last used search conditions
  • Display link overlay on icons of links in remote file list
  • Display of average transfer speed should converge faster to overall average
  • Simplify default file exists action dialogs
  • Apply decimal places size formatting option also to total queue size
  • MSW: Reduce number of needed user interactions in installer if update started from within FileZilla
  • MSW: Check that there are no running instances of FileZilla before installing

    Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • Fix handling of remote directory names with leading or trailing spaces
  • *nix: Fix memory leaks in D-Bus session management and power management inhibitor client code
  • *nix: Fall back to org.gnome.SessionManager if org.freedesktop.PowerManagment does not exit to inhibit idle sleep during transfers
  • Increase default size of SO_RCVBUF (TCP advertised window) to fix performance issues on high-latency connections
  • MSW: Fix displaying list of shares on local network resources
  • MSW: Remote file editing no longer gets confused if two filenames only differ in character case
  • Fix dialog line wrapping issues
  • Ensure width of site manager is large enough to fit all tabs
  • Better guard against filename columns being moved or hidden
  • *nix, OS X: Handle filesystems without advisory file locking instead of falsely warning about site manager being opened in a different instance of FileZilla
  • Changing directories at the same time an upload finishes no longer disturbs synchronized browsing
  • *nix: Ensure dialogs can be closed using escape key
  • *nix: Fix height of settings dialog

I wish they would add WebDAV support....*sigh*

WebDAV:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebDAV
Quoted from Wikipedia:
"Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning, or WebDAV, is a set of extensions to the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that allows computer-users to edit and manage files collaboratively on remote World Wide Web servers."
Has nothing to do with ftp...
keyword: "web-based"

Actually, the context here should not be about whether Filezilla supports just FTP versus HTTP. Just look at the name and the interface... *File*zilla is about transferring and receiving files. I would think Filezilla should support WebDav or any other non-FTP protocol. Take a look at a piece of software called, AnyClient... it supports both FTP and WebDav in a common interface.

"web-based" can mean nearly anything these days. Microsoft tends to think so... you can use Internet Explorer to invoke ftp://whatever to pull down files via their "web-based" browser. I would think the natural progression of FileZilla would be to include WebDav support. If they don't somebody else will and has done so.

Just a matter of time and perhaps a change in their software architecture.

Let's get this straight...
web = http(s) protocol [TCP port 80]; keywords: GUI, interface, web browser, web site/server
opposite to...
ftp = ftp protocol [TCP ports 20 (data) + 21 (control)]; keywords: *nix based, directories/files/permissions, ftp client, ftp server
http [hypertext transfer protocol]:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertext_Transfer_Protocol
ftp [file transfer protocol]:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ftp
Let's not confuse "web" [strictly http-based] with "internet" [everything "net": http, ftp, irc, news, usenet, etc...], they are 2 different terms, it's like apples and oranges, they do not mix. ;)
Ergo...
web-based = means anywhere anytime http-based, never ftp.

HTH [hope this helps]
