with FTP Disk is now available for download. It’s the latest version of the popular shareware file transfer software for the Mac.
Interarchy provides Internet file transfer capabilities both for FTP and HTTP based servers, enabling Mac users to download files from most commonly available Internet file repositories. Interarchy 5.0 runs natively on Mac OS 8 – X.
FTP Disk is Interarchy 5.0’s major new feature. FTP Disk enables Interarchy users to use FTP directories like local folders. Interarchy connects to a remote FTP server, downloads the specified directory to a local folder, and then queues up local changes for background upload and remote changes for download.
The developer notes other changes in Interarchy 5.0 as well:
FATCarbon. Interarchy is a single application that will run natively on Mac OS X, Mac OS 9 and Mac OS 8.
Mirror Both Ways. Make a local folder look the same as a remote folder by transferring only things that are different between the two folders.
Mirror Download. Make a local folder look the same as a remote folder by downloading changes from the remote folder over the top of the local folder.
Mirror Upload. Make a remote folder look the same as a local folder by uploading changes from the local folder over the top of the remote folder.
Manual Upload. An input dialog that allows a connectionless manual uploading of a file or folder to a remote server without first calling up a remote listing. This operation can be bookmarked.
Tunnel via SSH. All FTP username and passwords can now be securely encrypted for security via SSH. This feature works for FTP Disks, This feature is only available under Mac OS X.
Drag Browser Links. You can now drag and drop links from your web browser to Interarchy, rather than having to copy and paste them.
Transparent Interfaces. Custom Interarchy interface windows now support multiple levels of transparency by using the alpha channel of the PICT resources that make up their four frames. This feature is only available under Mac OS X.
Hierarchical main menu. To reduce clutter, the main menu has been factored into command sub-menus called FTP, Web and Net.
Manual FTP. The Anarchie-style FTP listings and dialogs were renamed to “Manual FTP” to give them context from the new automatic FTP Disk feature and the mirroring features.
Interarchy 5.0 costs US$45 to register. Upgrade prices and multi-user volume discounts are available. A fully functional eval version is available for download, also.
