Maxum Development has released Rumpus 3.0, a major new update to its FTP server for Mac OS and Mac OS X. The new version improves OS X support and adds new features, too.

One key new feature of Rumpus 3.0 is the Web File Manager, a new file management system that provides FTP capabilities to users who rely on Web browsers instead of FTP clients to navigate a Rumpus server. This enables Web browsers users to both upload and download files, view folder listings and perform other basic file management functions. The interface can be customized as well.
Improved OS X file system compatibility has been made, with support for long file names and paths, files larger than 2GB, and customizable file permissions for uploaded files on a per-user-account basis. Rumpus also now automatically creates a Unix script to handle automatically loading at system startup.
Rumpus 3.0 also adds automatic detection and blocking of hackers trying to gain FTP access. Administrators can maintain a list of clients that should not gain FTP access. The new version sports better file recognition and file handling, simplified and extended administration capabilities and more.
Rumpus 3.0 costs US$249 (the Professional version costs $395). The upgrade is free if you’ve purchase Rumpus since January 1, 2001, otherwise it costs $79 for the new version. A free time-limited evaluation version is ready for download.
