Old-school FTP gets souped up: Interarchy 9
Interarchy 9, Nolobe's FTP application, is out Friday 1/11 with over 100 new features. We've covered Interarchy in the past, in part because of its old-school cred, but this release has some new-school polish.
In addition to the existing support for the usual protocols and Amazon S3 transfers, version 9 adds a new protocol built on SSH that offers security, speed and flexibility beyond the limitations of SFTP. The protocol is perl-based and should work with any server running perl v4 or later. I'm also happy to see the addition of a Finder-style path bar which accepts dropped files on any part of the path. Some other highlights from the extensive release notes include:
- Major upgrades to tab functionality
- A multi-function sidebar for easy access to, well, everything
- "Copy Public URL"
- "Preview in Safari" support added
- Path Finder support
- Sparkle updates
Of course, if Interarchy is your current solution, upgrades are $29 and free for anyone who purchased Interarchy on or after February 1st, 2007.
