Heading for 0.2
February 23rd 2009
After a rather idle period, the development is back on track for the 0.2 release. The main focus for 0.2 has been a bookmark system. As a preparation for 0.2 you can try the 0.1.9x development releases found in devel-snapshots. I even made a Ubuntu package.

I really want to smoke out as many bugs as possible before the 0.2 release. So please give 0.1.9x a try and report any bugs you may encounter.

Things to check out in 0.1.9x
Ok, we have a new bookmark system. It should be quite traditional and intuitive. The connect button has moved, and a Sites menu has taken it's place. Bookmarks can be added manually, or by adding the current connected site. You can edit the bookmarks and folders and move them around in the treeview. A word of warning: currently stores bookmark passwords in clear text.

If you have access to a VMS style ftp server, should now be able to browse and transfer files for some of those systems.

needs more translators!
Want to translate to your language? At the moment we have quite complete translations for Norwegian and French, and a partially Spanish one. Please contact me if you want to contribute! (see contact info on front page)

0.1.4 released
January 25th 2009
This release is mainly a bugfix release, but it also comes with some new features.

This is a quick summary of the changes: This is probably the last release in the 0.1 series. Work on 0.2 has already begun.

Release plans
January 23rd 2009
So, 0.1.3 has been out for a while, and as with all releases, it came with some new features and both new and old bugs. I've been hacking a bit on this project lately and have a quite solid version coming along soon..

This is some of the things already in place in svn: Try the latest devel release or build from svn if you want to check it out. Please report any issues.

A 0.1.4 release can be expected shortly, and that will probably be the last 0.1.x release. The plans for 0.2 include a site manager for bookmarks and site specific settings.

Happy New Year!
December 31st 2008
On this last day of the year I made my first attempt at making some rpms for Fedora 10. You'll find them in the downloads section. The guys maintaining the PackMan repository for openSUSE have made some packages too.

Happy New Year to everyone! See you for a new release of in January!
0.1.2 Released
December 23rd 2008
This release fixes some of the issues reported with the initial release. Most notably, the multi threaded remote operations now work more as intended. You can now continue to browse directories etc while a transfer is in progress.
Thanks for the feedback!
December 22nd 2008
I want to thank the people who have given feedback on . This project got a lot more attention than I anticipated, and that of course motivates me to hurry up with new features! It seems I may have some co-developers coming to the project too.

On a side note, the latest development snapshot has a lot of fixes and multi threaded remote operations that actually works. I bit more testing is needed, but a 0.1.2 release is not far away. Stay tuned!
0.1 Released
December 19th 2008
This is an initial release, and is to be considered as alpha quality. Lots of features are still missing. Feel free to give it a try!

A few cool new things made it into this release, and among them is drag'n drop.
Name change completed
December 17th 2008
As you can see, the name change has been completed. A lot of class and namespace renaming has also been done in the source.
Name change
December 12th 2008
Ok, it is now official. plumFTP will change name to . plumFTP was always a temporary working name for the project. The new name can be interpreted in several ways. The actual idea came from the Norwegian meaning of the word bare, meaning something as just in English. Website changes and renaming of namespaces and classes will follow. Stay tunded.
