today released an update to its popular file transfer protocol (FTP) client application Fetch. The new version, 4.0.2, is available for download from links on the company’s Web site now.
According to the developer, the new version incorporates “dozens of bug fixes,” along with new features such as support for longer-than-31-character filenames and the ability to duplicate remote files. One important change is the restoration of drag-and-drop capabilities to file lists, a feature that broke when Apple upgraded Mac OS X to version 10.1.3.
The full-featured FTP client software has long been a staple of many Mac users’ systems — it provides an easy-to-use interface for navigating and manipulating file directories maintained by public and private FTP servers all over the Internet.
Fetch costs US$25 to register, and a 15-day trial demo version is available for download. It works on Mac OS 7 through X. Fetch 4.0.2 is a free upgrade for anyone who has licensed Fetch versions 3.0.3, 4.0 or 4.0.1.
