Now supporting trackpad gestures as well
Popular open-source FTP program Cyberduck has been updated to version 4.1, bringing with it an all-new WebDAV protocol implementation, increased compatibility with cloud storage service Cloudfront, support for trackpad gestures for navigation and selection for the Mac version, and IPv6 and numerous small interface improvements for the Windows version.
Cyberduck is offered as donationware, and supports FTP/TLS, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon's S3, Google Storage, Google Docs, Windows Azure and Rackspace Cloud file distribution systems as well as featuring Bonjour integration for local FTP, SFTP and WebDAV support. Users can also now sort bookmarks by nickname, hostname or protocol.
The new version fixes a donation key validation issue in OS X 10.5, and now preserves modification dates for folders on upload. Users can also filter bookmarks by comments as well as by the usual attributes, and Google Docs users can now upload arbitrary file types instead of just the formats Google Docs supports. Windows users can now set Cyberduck as their default text editor as well, and the developers have added a Bulgarian localization.
Cyberduck works with Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, or Windows XP or higher. Version 4.1 is available immediately.
