CrushFTP 4.6 released
CrushFTP.com has released the latest version of its file transfer utility, CrushFTP 4.6. The update adds automated server alerts for messages like low disk space, user bans, and exceeding a threshhold. The latest release also adds support for maximum upload file sizes, maximum download amounts per session/day/month, MagicDirectory plug-in enhancements, and better support for foreign characters from Windows XP. CrushFTP 4.6 is priced from $30 for new customers, with updates available for free to existing 4.x users.
Further additions include the ability to use flexible miniURLs, a training video for performing a headless install, and an option for the MagicDIrectory plug-in to clean up unsafe Web characters. The latest release includes options for IP addresses that can never be banned to safeguard against accidentally banning vital addresses, and adds support for UTF8 OPTS mode.
The update fixes several bugs related to rejecting uploads under heavy load, encoding with Java 1.6, logging and plug-ins, CrushSQL account expirations, miniURLs, and forcing a remote update on a CrushFTP server.
