Panic released today Transmit 2.2, a new version of their FTP client software for Mac OS X. The new version sports support for Rendezvous, Apple’s zero-configuration networking technology, and other improvements.

With Rendezvous support, Transmit can find any Rendezvous-capable FTP server on your local network. If one is found, Transmit creates a “Rendezvous” menu in the connection panel, and keeps that menu up-to-date as servers go on and off the network, so no manual refreshing is required. If no Rendezvous FTP servers are found, the menu hides until needed, according to Panic.
Other changes include Edit in BBEdit support, enabling users to use Bare Bones Software’s popular text editing tool to work on files in remote directories. You can also set ASCII file extensions manually and configure an automatic server connection on launch.
What’s more, Transmit 2.2 gains Spanish language localization, fixes a problem with high idle CPU usage, fixes bugs and improves support for SFTP.
Transmit 2.2 is a free upgrade for registered Transmit 2 users. Others can buy a Transmit 2 license for US$24.95.
Panic will be exhibiting at next month’s
Macworld Conference & Expo
in San Francisco, Calif. as well — the first time in three years they’ve attended the event as exhibitors. The company noted that folks who buy Transmit in person at the show will get a “very, very cool special surprise bonus.” The company also plans to have T-shirts and CD-ROMs on hand. Look for them in booth 1748.
