Transmit 3.2.1

I grew up on command line FTP clients so I still have a hard time getting my head around the fact that Transmit is the best FTP client I've ever used, bar none. It's the interface, you see. Even after two years of Transmit usage I still can't help but think... candy-coated. However that doesn't change the fact that when I need to FTP something my fingers automatically fire up Transmit. Today they released version 3.2.1 which, for a point-point release, has a hell of a lot in it:
Added ability to set permissions recursively for items in a folder via Get Info
Added French, German, and Chinese localizations
The Queue now displays per-item feedback when transferring the contents of folders
Fixed issue with SFTP not automatically reconnecting after a disconnect
Fixed potential connection failures with Secure WebDAV
Fixed a curious per-file upload stall with certain FTP servers, making uploads much faster
Fixed a potential issue where the "maximum queue connection" setting was being ignored
Fixed a crash with WebDAV uploads and incorrect file encoding
Fixed a problem with connecting to SFTP servers with changed host keys
Improved Transmit's "passive mode" fallback to better detect when passive is necessary
Directory parser now trims trailing slashes from folders
Improved element focus when using the Sidebar
Local path defaults to your My Stuff location when adding a Favorite
Improved the speed when using "Use Queue for All Transfers"
Tabs will now properly appear if a Transmit window fills a screen
Custom file permissions are now displayed in Their Stuff after an upload
Time/date stamps are now maintained when downloading folders.
Automator uploads will no longer hang if "Use Queue for All Transfers" is turned on
Added capability for sending raw FTP commands in TLS/SSL mode
Fixed a problem where a synchronization with umlauts (and other characterse) would not work
Doing "Get Info" on multiple files with the same permissions now shows permissions
Using "Go To" on a Novell server now properly refreshes the file listing
Fixed a potentially serious issue with recursive deletes being interrupted mid-delete
Display sleeping is no longer blocked while a transfer is in progress.
Fixed a problem with editing files with incorrect text encoding.
File selections are now always properly maintained when reloading listings
Directory caches now more reliably clear on disconnect
Spring loaded folders now work properly when dragging from column to list view
Mirror synchronizations now work more reliably when excluding certain file types
Directory listings no longer appear blank under certain specific circumstances
Improved support for Sun Solaris 7 (Japanese, EUC)
Removed 'FEAT' check to improve compatibility with certain servers
Widget: Added support for high-bit characters in volume/path names
Widget: Improved timeout problem with large file transfers
Widget: Fixed a problem where "\" could not be used in a username with Japanese
Widget: Now shows 'Username' instead of 'Path' on the front if the path is blank
Lots of additional polishing

  • What I love about Transmit is the Quicksilver integration. I just type the first few letters of whatever FTP server shortcut I want and it opens it up. Geez, I'm lazy.
