Release Notes

This release will attempt to cache the settings that Explorer commonly uses when trawling the file details from the beginning of the file. It will adapt the code that I used for the Liquesce project's FileInfo caching, and implement a temporary file buffer to allow the BOM / Unicode / Filetype detection calls, to use local client side storage rather than trying to get 2 to 256 bytes from the file each time. (Just watch how WordPadª thrashes a file handle when it opens a file !)

Now is the time to request (Or up-vote existing) features.

Issues (To be sorted in later versions)

- When drive is not in use, Reconnects do not work.
- Need to prevent multiple client starts

Done (In code base)

- Add user option to make the FTP target Read-only
- Add some pictures to this web site.
- Implement SetFileTime
- Installer does not put down all the files !
- Advanced Feature: Add Ignore failure to set Timestamp
- Some FTP servers will not accept a full path
- Implement DeleteFile
- Implement DeleteDirectory

Done 2012-02-12 - Alpha

- Use temporary lookup file; Add temp file cache object upto the specified CacheFileMaxSize
- Improve the way the files are obtained when the drive is just "Jumped into" i.e. starting at a sub dir rather than stepping in.
- Obey GNU requirements and add a copyright to the code files
- Use Amalgam Icon, and remove status stuff from the notify tray app
