CrushFTP 4.9.6 ships

CrushFTP has updated its webserver technology, releasing CrushFTP 4.9.6, improving the overall speed of the software's server and fixing a bug in the software's WebDAV client that crashed Mac OS X 10.5's Finder. SFTP (Secure FTP) connections are faster in version 4.9.6 and directory deletions can be done all at once, instead of line-by-line. In addition to the WedDAV bugfix, there are numerous other fixes in 4.9.6, including a bug with folders that had a double space in them with a FTP proxy, a fix for GUI sizing in the preference window and a repair for problems with Active Directory style domains and usernames.

CrushFTP focuses on ease-of-use in setting up an FTP server, handling numerous security protocols like SFTP, SSH FTP, FTP over SSL and WebDAV/WebDAV SSL. The software offers on-the-fly compression as it transfers files, hence the name "Crush"FTP, and the WebDAV abilities allow for the server to appear as a unique volume on a Mac, allowing for read/write and rename opportunities that would not work in standard FTP within the Finder. CrushFTP includes other conveniences like e-mail notifications, built-in reporting, an OS X widget for quick monitoring and easy-configuration routines for a quick server set-up.

CrushFTP 4.9.6 works with Mac OS X 10.2 or later. It costs $30 for up to 10 concurrent users, $60 for up to 50 users and $100 for limitless users.
