In v5.0 of XList, the server app's user interface has been revised, and the ability to add comments to tasks has been added, alongside OS X notifications, a new menu in the menubar for quick access, and more.
User management functionality expanded

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.
