Portable FlashFXP Changelog

New in version 5.1.0 Build 3826

March 30th, 2015
  • This update addresses an issue where FlashFXP may inadvertently revert back to the trial edition.

New in version 5.1.0 Build 3825 (March 28th, 2015)

  • Changes made in our previous release have revealed an uninitialized buffer used to store error messages from OpenSSL. This can lead to unexpected errors within FlashFXP.

New in version 5.1.0 Build 3824 (March 27th, 2015)

  • This update implements several new integrity and validation security checks to protect our users from future threats.

New in version 5.1.0 Build 3820 (March 23rd, 2015)

  • Updated: OpenSSL 1.0.2a
  • Added: new option in Preferences dialog under General > Options > Use single color application icon. When checked, the application icon will always be green, rather then changing colors based on the current program state. (red = offline, orange = connecting, blue = connected, transferring = green)
  • Fixed: The session console window wasn't displaying lines with length of 1.
  • Change: Improved file handling when downloading a single set of files using multiple parallel copies of FlashFXP.

New in version 5.1.0 Build 3818 (March 18th, 2015)

  • Fixed: Issue downloading translation updates when the translation name contains a space. i.e. Chinese Simplified.
  • Fixed: Issue with SSL session re-use when using active mode (PORT/EPRT) data connections.
  • Fixed: FTP proxy issue when connecting to the proxy via an IPv6 address to a IPv4 FTP server.
  • Fixed: Incorrect status message displayed on download when FlashFXP failed to open the local file for write.
  • Fixed: IPv6 addresses were not properly formatted when using the copy to clipboard feature.
  • Fixed: The URL parser failed to parse IPv6 addresses pasted into FlashFXP (Quick Connect / Site Manager).
  • Fixed: Failure to transfer to/from network shares \\path
  • Fixed: Custom commands > incorrect result when using /queue selected with a modifier within a command block.
  • Fixed: Custom commands > incorrect result when using () to strip characters.
  • Changed: If FlashFXP encounters an error saving a data file to disk then an error message is displayed, the error message now includes a list of files affected by this failure. For some unexplained reason a few people have a corrupted schedule.dat which is causing this issue. As long as you don't have any scheduled tasks in FlashFXP you can safely delete it. Otherwise you may need to replace it from a back-up.

New in version 5.1.0 Build 3817 (March 18th, 2015)

  • Fixed: When FlashFXP is running as a scheduled task, if the user restored FlashFXP from the system tray the main application window was blank.
  • Fixed: High DPI scaling issue where the statusbar transfer progress panel was not scaled.
  • Fixed: An issue where in some situations the remote file listing cache was stale and regardless of the settings it should of been purged and re-cached. i.e. within a single queue; upload a folder to a site followed by downloading the same folder to the users computer in new location. The download would fail because the cache was stale.
  • Fixed: An issue uploading files where the source path+filename was 260 characters or longer.
  • Fixed: on the confirmation prompt "Opening separate shell session" the check-box "Don't show this dialog again" the text was missing a UTF-8 to Unicode conversion.
  • Fixed: In the remote file browser when sorting by column (owner, group, attrib) the sorted result was incorrect due to a logic error evaluating the "parent directory" item.
  • Fixed: SFTP / Keyboard authentication issue. [BUG ID: 1020]
  • Updated SBB library (used for x.509 certificates, public/private keys, ssh, and sftp)
  • New command script macro: /busybox Displays a busy dialog during script execution with a cancel button.
  • Major change to the way FlashFXP handles remote directory listings. Now the auto-detect setting detects UTF-8 and converts non-UTF8 text using the operating system code page. Previously non UTF-8 was displayed using the Windows 1252 code page. This caused problems displaying non-English text such as Korean and Chinese. This change may result in some text being displayed incorrectly. If you experience problems please let me know ASAP. Please provide the name and version of the FTP server software and the language as well as the OS version and language. Additional information may be required.
  • Changed: Many internal Unicode to UTF-8 conversions were changed from using CP 1252 to using the operating system locale CP.
  • Fixed entering a Unicode pathname in the drop-down path breadcrumb could fail.
  • Fixed the Active Edits feature did not always handle Unicode file-names correctly.
  • Fixed an issue with timestamps in the session console window, resulting in some incorrect timestamps.
  • Changed: Timestamps in the session console window, if you turn timestamps on you will now see timestamps for pre-existing lines in the window.
  • Fixed issue with the font select dialog; the font preview used the wrong color.
  • Cleaned up parts of the transfer queue routine and removed some flawed code that attempted to swap the direction of a queue item.
  • Changed: When a delete operation is performed via the transfer queue FlashFXP makes sure that there are no failed transfers pending, if any are found then they are reset and retried, if the transfer fails again then the transfer queue is now aborted. In Previous builds the delete operation was marked as failed and skipped and the queue continued.
  • Major speed improvement when downloading from a ProFTPD/mod_sftp Server.
  • Fixed SSH/SFTP compatiblity issue with Sun_SSH that resulted in incomplete/failed uploads.
  • Major overhaul to the custom command script engine to resolve an issue where command blocks and script macro includes were sometimes executed in the wrong order. THIS MAY BREAK PRE-EXISTING CUSTOM COMMAND SCRIPTS THAT RELY ON OUT OF ORDER EXECUTION. PLEASE VERIFY THAT THEY WORK AS EXPECTED.
  • Fixed an issue in command scripts that caused /shell { } command blocks to stop working.
  • Improved the %c (clipboard text) token when the clipboard contains multiple lines of text and is used with the /shell command. i.e. "/shell %c"
  • Fixed Unicode encoding issue in the /writeln command when the output filename contained non-UF8 characters.
  • Fixed an issue with the /select* commands in the remote browser where the current item selection wasn't correctly cleared before being applied.
  • Fixed an issue in the local browser where in some situations the wrong icon was displayed for an item.
  • Fixed an issue with using -get with a ftp:// url via the command line.
  • Fixed an issue with FTPS uploads where the file transfer would fail and was treated as if it was successful. This could occur if the control channel was lost and the data data channel successfully completed a graceful TLS shutdown without actually sending the entire file.
  • Added raw command "/set app.icon.static 1" to set the taskbar/window icon to a static icon, rather than change based on the current state.
  • Added raw command "/set app.closetotray 1" to change the behavior of FlashFXP when clicking the close button to minimize to the tray rather than exit. To exit FlashFXP you need to either use Exit from under the Session menu or the tray right-click menu.
  • Fixed UTF-8/Unicode encoding issue when using a selective transfer rule that contains UTF-8 encoded characters in the Edit Queue and Edit Scheduled Task dialogs.
  • Fixed an issue with selective transfer rules; when the files list action is set to transfer and folder list action is set to skip and the entry in the folder list is an exact match (no wildcard/regex) the folder list action could be ignored and allow the matching folder to transfer.
  • Fixed Site Manager > Site Profile > TCP/IP Buffer size > Send/Receive values were reversed on load.
  • Fixed double UTF-8 encoding on some SFTP status messages shown in the console window.
  • Fixed local browser modified date was rounded to the nearest even second. The SHGetDataFromIDList api doesn't mention this limitation.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3805 (January 26th, 2015)

  • Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.2
  • Added new CLI switches -overwrite -ask -resume which can be combined with -download -upload -fxp etc to override the global/per-site transfer rules.
  • Updated the Custom command section of the help file and introduced a few new commands.
  • Fixed bug in the "Edit and Upload" feature that caused it to malfunction and not work as intended. Basically in some cases the file wasn't added to the Active Edits window. Since the file wasn't added to the Active Edits it was not monitored for changes and FlashFXP was not detecting when the user made changes to the file in turn the file was not uploaded after save.
  • The Character Encoding setting is now applied to MLSD directory listings.
  • This release contains a couple minor changes based on crash reports.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3804 (January 20th, 2015)

  • Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.1l
  • Updated SFTP engine to the latest version.
  • Fixed missing Unicode to UTF-8 conversion in the "Find dialog", as a result some Unicode text was not found when searching the file list.
  • Added automatic end of line (LF to CR/LF) conversion when pasting text into the raw command prompt.
  • The toolbar theme feature has been updated to support additional icon sizes.
  • Minor tweaks to improve the user interface on high DPI monitors. (We`re working on a large version of the Tango toolbar theme)

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3801 (January 10th, 2015)

  • Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.1k

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3800 (January 5th, 2015)

  • Fixed regression in `single connection layout` mode where the browser panes don't update correctly. Effected: 1. Toggling single connection layout mode. 2. Connecting via quick connect 3. Connecting via the command line.
  • Fixed conflicting shortcut key combination (ctrl+shift+s) 'Select Marked' & 'Set File Date / Time' in the 'Server File Search' dialog.
  • Fixed when writing to a data file fails it was triggering a application crash.
  • Fixed the skip reason field was not being written to the skip.log
  • Fixed drawing glitch in the status-bar file transfer progress pane when Windows themes are unavailable or turned off.
  • Fixed incorrect string pointer check in status-bar drawing routine, the code failed to correctly validate the string pointer.
  • Fixed drawing glitch on File exists (Ask) prompt where some of the text background was the wrong color when Windows Themes are unavailable or turned off.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3799 (December 13th, 2014)

  • Fixed when using the raw command %f token the selection list was processed in reverse order.
  • Fixed an issue where the remote folder cache expired unexpectedly. The folder cache check-box setting "Expire after minutes" was ignored and the cache was always cleared after minutes.
  • Fixed an issue with the global "Enable Skip list" setting being ignored in some cases, as a result the skip list was enabled even when the setting was unchecked.
  • Fixed an issue with the "Filename Case Conversion" feature mangling filenames.
  • Fixed a compatibility issue with OpenSSH+HPN on FreeBSD.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3795 (December 13th, 2014)

  • Fixed windows error code 1400 crash triggered by showing toolbar hints when FlashFXP is started on a local desktop and then accessed via a remote desktop (RDC).
  • Fixed password prompt window active/focus issue when restoring FlashFXP from the tray area.
  • Fixed an issue where the seconds of a file date/time did not match the local remote file list (visual issue).
  • Fixed an issue with the Queue > Save As dialog on Windows XP that caused the file type filter to be set to "Save Selection" by default resulting in only the selected items being saved to the queue file.
  • Changed the way the status-bar panels resize to fit the text; under some conditions the constant resizing was very unpleasant.
  • During a site to site transfer (while waiting for the PORT reply) if the connection is lost then the transfer queue would stop with a "server error, aborted", this behavior has changed and now only applies to the first transfer attempt.
  • Fixed a device context (DC) resource leak when generating a prompt dialog. i.e. confirmation or input prompts. Wrong API was called; DeleteDC() instead of ReleaseDC()
  • Fixed a memory leak when closing FlashFXP, the internal custom command data structure was not freed.
  • Fixed a memory leak in a routine that expanded %appdata% and %allusersprofile%. A temporary PIDL was allocated within the routine and was not freed.
  • Fixed incorrect relative path in log folder location; i.e. ".\logs\" tried to store the logs under the application exe path rather than under the application data path.
  • Fixed incorrect logic in folder cache after stopping a 'server file search' operation followed by listing a non-cached folder; the file listing is stored in the cached for the wrong folder.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3791 (November 10th, 2014)

  • This update addresses a Buffer overflow in the Vcl.Graphics.TPicture.Bitmap implementation of the Visual Component Library (VCL) that is used within FlashFXP.
  • Fixed issue running en-queued commands via a scheduled task, when the queue also contained file transfers that preserved the date/time on file transfer.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3788 (November 3rd, 2014)

  • Fixed drag/drop issue when dragging between two separate local browsers and the drop-target item is selected.
  • Fixed an issue where raw command hot key shortcuts were sometimes non-functional. When the command menu was generated/updated/cleared sometimes the shortcut list was not synced.
  • Fixed an issue where the file list right-click raw command sub-menu was sometimes not populated. (related to the issue above)
  • Fixed an issue with the remote folder cache after refreshing a cached folder from the server.
  • Fixed crash on exit when running a scheduled task that contains special commands (raw commands, en-queued move, rename, delete, etc operations).
  • Fixed rare A/V crash in the Site Manager after deleting a site group. A sanity check failed to prevent access to an invalid object.
  • Fixed rare A/V crash when using the Remote Editing feature caused by an invalid value within the remote edit file object. Added additional sanity checks.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3786 (October 27th, 2014)

  • Fixed A/V parsing mailto: links in the console window, the mailto: prefix is cut from the line but the length of the line isn't updated, causing the memory to be read 7 bytes past the EOL.
  • Improved the custom commands progress text on the status-bar by prefixing the status text with the progress.
  • Fixed unexpected result after expanding a tree-node in the navigation tree and then refreshing the current directory. FlashFXP failed to switch the current working directory on the server back to the active directory and as a result the file list content was that of the expanded folder.
  • Fixed incorrect behavior when a directory listing failed due to a SSL/TLS error FlashFXP was attempting to auto-magically switch PASV/PORT modes when it should not have. It was checking the SSL result of the control socket and not the data socket.
  • Fixed an issue that some users experienced in build 3784 with minimizing FlashFXP to the system tray (the main window didn't completely disappear, leaving an unsightly box in the bottom left of the screen).
  • Changes to the way custom commands are loaded so that if FlashFXP is running from a removable drive and the drive is removed the custom commands are still available.
  • Added local browser specific custom commands /copy /cut /paste that mimic the windows shell operations.
  • Fixed several minor UI drawing issue when rendering the content within some dialogs. (i.e. button spacing, bottom border on section headers, etc)
  • Fixed a couple minor UI issues and an A/V crash when running FlashFXP under WINE.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3784 (October 18th, 2014)

  • Updated OpenSSL 1.0.1j
  • OpenSSL Security Advisory [15 Oct 2014]
  • Fixed DPI scaling issues with that Key Manager and Raw Command input dialogs making them unusable. As well as a few other very minor DPI related issues in the Edit Queue Item dialog, Filters dialog, Site Manager dialog, Edit Custom commands dialog.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3782 (October 16th, 2014)

  • Fixed crash when trying to remote edit a file when the setting "remember edit history" is unchecked.
  • Fixed a crash while saving the FlashFXP data files and the write operation fails (i.e. insufficient disk space/quota). FlashFXP will now attempt to preallocate the disk space first before writing the file content to prevent an unexpected failure which could lead to file corruption or loss of data.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3781 (October 14th, 2014)

  • Fixed regression in a couple right-click pop-up menus; Resulting in double pop-up menus and menu entries missing from some menus.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3780 (October 13th, 2014)

  • Fixed regression with raw command prompt right-click popup menu.
  • Some more tweaks to the way the main window layout is adjusted when certain visual elements are switched between visible and hidden.
  • Fixed crash when creating a X.509 certificate or public/private key pair and then aborting the operation.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3779 (October 13th, 2014)

  • Fixed "Stream read error." crash when installing FlashFXP for the first time. Caused by an unexpected condition when saving an empty data file.
  • Fixed "List index out of bounds (2147483647)." error when trying to access site bookmarks. Caused by trying to sort the bookmark list when it contains less than 2 elements.
  • Fixed ctrl+v paste in the local browser when the parent folder entry is selected. Previously this operation required that no items were selected.
  • Fixed issue with the status/queue windows after hiding; when unhiding the windows in some cases their size is so small that the windows were not visible.
  • Fixed unexpected result when parsing certain custom command tokens. i.e. /enqueue /ren "%f" "("%f", "(.*)($)","_(%m,%({YYYY}-{MM}-{DD}))")" would fail to correctly parse the date format.
  • Added the ability to exclude symbolic links when using the mask /select commands by using -F or -D (uppercase) rather than -f or -d.. ie. /select -F *.php
  • Added progress status-bar text when executing a multi-line custom command or a custom command that involves multiple files.
  • Added a new action "Use Rules" to File Transfer Rules "On transfer error". What this means is that instead of a single constant action you can allow this condition to use the user-defined rules. This new action should not be used unless you fully understand the outcome.
  • Fixed crash when opening up the site manager (Invalid data sent to crypt() length must be a multiple of two error)

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3777 (October 3rd, 2014)

  • Fixed Single connection mode which was completely broken and unusable.
  • Fixed crash when opening up the site manager (Invalid data sent to crypt() length must be a multiple of two error)

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3776 (October 2nd, 2014)

  • Fixed error on start up for new installations. The error was related to the change in the previous build when switching between encrypted non-encrypted data files.
  • For now I have disabled auto-complete on the raw command input drop-down box. The auto-complete behavior is not behaving as one would expect.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3775 (October 2nd, 2014)

  • Improved the method and logic behind the "application password protection" feature to lock all data files during the switch between encrypted non-encrypted mode. When sharing the data files with other machines or syncing via apps such as drop-box, BitTorrent Sync, etc. could result in mis-matched files where some data files were encrypted and some are not. This was only an issue when multiple copies of FlashFXP were running across different machines and the "application password protection" was set, password changed, or turned off.
  • Fixed error when connecting to a site that used a x.509 or key pair with the strong security option set. The code in the pass-phrase dialog prompt was wrong.
  • Fixed compare folder content / compare by size was not working correctly.
  • Fixed access violation error closing FlashFXP while the "Calculate server space used" dialog was open.
  • Added additional sanity checks when reading the "File Transfer Rules" settings, some users upgrading from 4.x and below appear to have unexpected values resulting in an A/V crash.
  • Fixed a problem with some site profile settings not being saved in the Site Manager if you rename the site name via the General tab without immediately clicking the Apply button before making any any other site site profile changes.
  • Fixed In Preferences / General / Confirmations, 4 of the check-box values were swapped (check values didn't match the option caption) causing confirmation dialogs to appear unexpectedly or not at all.
  • Fixed issue with raw command "/queue selected ". The command did not work as expected.
  • Fixed dead-lock when passing % tokens to raw command modifiers i.e. /test (%p%f)
  • Added file not found status message when using the (), (), (), etc raw command modifiers and the file is not found. these command modifiers can now be used on plain text as well provided the text does not start with \ or ?:\ i.e. /echo SHA1 hash of hi = ("hi")

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3771 (September 20th, 2014)

  • Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.1i
  • Added support for TLSv1.2
  • Added full UTF-8/Unicode support.
  • Added support for Perl Compatible Regular Expressions. PCRE can be used in place of simple wild card matching. To use PCRE the pattern must be prefixed with rx: for example use rx: .*(txt|log)$ to match files ending with .txt or .log.
  • Added many new macro commands for use in custom commands.
  • The indirect site to site (FXP) transfer mode is now much more reliable when handling broken connections and transfer errors.
  • Added the ability to send shell commands over SSH when connected to a SFTP server.
  • This release includes dozens of minor improvements and bug fixes

New in version 5.0 Build 3759 RC 2 (August 19th, 2014)

  • Added new command macro /shell to send shell commands the shell when connected to a SFTP server. The server must provide a shell access for commands to work. You can en-queue commands or send them via the raw command prompt.
  • Upgraded SBB library to the latest version, We use this library when working with x.509 certificates, public/private keys, and for SSH/SFTP support.
  • A couple minor tweaks to the liveupdate routines, please let me know if you have problems with updating within FlashFXP. (though it would apply following this release.)
  • I've added support adjusting the OpenSSL Cipher per-site, it uses the standard OpenSSL cipher string format (https://www.openssl.org/docs/apps/ciphers.html)
  • I've updated more of the FlashFXP help file to reflect the new features and changes in v5.0.

New in version 5.0 Build 3757 RC 2 (August 19th, 2014)

  • Fixed incorrect date/time offset (Site Manager > Site profile > Time zone) when using certain UTC+0 zones with daylight savings when converting from server time to local time.

New in version 5.0 Build 3756 RC 2 (August 19th, 2014)

  • OpenSSL 1.0.1i
  • Added missing phrase "rule" to translations, this is used in the status window when a file is skipped.. i.e. Skip [rule:1 equal Size-Date]:
  • Modified the behavior of the liveupdate > launch update feature to display any confirmation prompts before continuing the update. If you select Yes then FlashFXP closes and the update installer runs. If you select No to any prompt then the update will run when you manually close FlashFXP.
  • Added multi-line edit mode to the raw command dialog. The mode is toggled by clicking on the triangle button.
  • Fixed issue with Time Zone setting "Attempt to auto-discover time offset" where the date/time shown in the directory listing retrieved immediately prior to the date/time adjustment was wrong.
  • Minor changes to the Active Edits dialog. If you have an edit pending upload and you close FlashFXP a prompt appears warning you, after you select No to close FlashFXP then the Active Edits dialog is shown. Now when the Active Edits dialog is shown the list is updated to better reflect which files need to be uploaded.

New in version 4.4.4 Build 2046 (June 9th, 2014)

  • Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.1h
  • Fixed integer overflow in DateTimeToUnix() function, the result should of been an 64-bit integer but instead it was defined as a 32-bit integer.
  • Fixed rare crash when closing FlashFXP triggered by a delayed event that attempted to access an object that had already been freed.
  • Fixed rare crash when renaming a remote folder.

New in version 4.4.4 Build 2042 (March 28th, 2014)

  • Resolved a issue that could cause the EnQueue > "move" and "move folder content" features to fail
  • Fixed a sanity check issue in the local browser that performed a flawed evaluation which could lead to an out of bounds error
  • Fixed an issue where the skiplist/highlight rules were not re-applied to a folder after moving it to a new location.
  • Made several changes to the way the FlashFXP installer performs an upgrade installation. This should resolve all known issues with performing an upgrade installation.

New in version 4.4.4 Build 2038 (February 28th, 2014)

  • Resolved a issue that could cause the EnQueue > "move" and "move folder content" features to fail.
  • Fixed a sanity check issue in the local browser that performed a flawed evaluation which could lead to an out of bounds error.

New in version 4.4.4 Build 2035 (February 15th, 2014)

  • Added a work-a-round to address incomplete file upload issue on Windows 8.1. Please let us know if you continue to have problems
  • Fixed an issue that prevented using the Parent Directory button during a file transfer to switch to the parent folder (assuming the parent directory is cached)
  • Fixed an issue with rendering and displaying custom flashfxp toolbar themes on older versions of windows
  • Fixed an issue that triggered an access violation during the uninstalling process
  • Fixed an issue in the Key manager dialog where the key list was using the wrong font
  • Fixed an issue in the Site manager when adding a new site or changing the connection type, the client certificate/key drop downlist wasn't correctly populated
  • Fixed an issue using and loading custom button image's after installing a flashfxp toolbar theme
  • Improved error handling and sanity checking while resolving server hostnames to their IP address

New in version 4.4.3 Build 2027 (January 14th, 2014)

  • Fixed an application crash which could sometimes be triggered by the loss of connection or disconnecting from the remote server.
  • Fixed a crash on shutdown that prevented FlashFXP from cleanly closing and sometimes leaving processes running in the background, this was caused by a missing sanity check in the destructor of our threaded timer pool.
  • Fixed an issue in the Site Manager that could trigger an access violation when selecting some sites followed by a group. The A/V was caused by code responsible for updating the bookmarks listview control. Specifically when clearing the items.
  • Fixed an issue in the Site Manager that could trigger an access violation when using the search bar at the top of the window. The A/V was caused by a the tear down routine that cleared the treeview and updated treeview with matching sites.
  • While reviewing the code changes that were implimented to solve the incomplete upload problem I discovered a mistake that failed to deallocate a timer ID from our timer pool (when the object.reset method was called object.remove, resetting the object to the inital state changed the timer ID) and as a result eventually the timer pool became full, disgarding any new requests for a timer ID. As a result some UI elements such as progress bars, the status window console, etc didn't update.

New in version 4.4.2 Build 2019 (November 1st, 2013)

  • This update addresses an issue that could result in incomplete file uploads under some conditions.
  • Fixed multiple crashes when closing FlashFXP from 3rd party software.
  • Fixed a crash when attempting to browse non-file-system locations.
  • Fixed an issue preventing scheduled tasks from being saved or edited.
  • Fixed an access violation error in the "calculate ftp space used" dialog.

New in version 4.4.2 Build 2016 (October 22nd, 2013)

  • Fixed issue with screen reader support library causing FlashFXP to crash when opening the about box.
  • Fixed issue on the queue > item edit dialog where the selective transfer list did not update after making changes via the selective transfer dialog. (i.e. adding/removing rule sets)
  • Fixed issue with the En-queue -> "Move Folder Content" feature, if the target folder didn't already exist there was no attempt to create it and often this caused the whole operation to fail, now If the target folder doesn't exist then it will be created.
  • Fixed an issue selecting a custom toolbar button style that would result in an access violation and then crash FlashFXP.
  • Fixed an issue where in some cases the SSL session context object wasn't freed from memory resulting in a memory leak. This occurred on servers such as drftpd where the data connection was established with a slave server.
  • Fixed an issue where in some cases the local browser wasn't refreshed fast enough after renaming a file or folder.
  • Fixed an issue where sending a LIST -alR via a raw command would cache the recursive directory listing as the current folder.
  • Fixed an issue where in a rare situation the cached content would contain the content from another directory, this occurred after a directory was deleted by another user on the server or from within another session and then changing into the directory resulting in a change directory failure and followed by list.
  • When an application password is set and the user forgets the password, after 3 failed attempts the user is now prompted to reset their settings and site profiles and start with a clean set of data files. The password protected data files are automatically backed up as a FlashFXP backup file (fbk) to allow for restoration sometime in the future if the user finds or remembers the password.
  • Fixed some issues with installing updates via LiveUpdate. Depending on which build you upgrade from these fixes might not be immediately noticeable.
  • Fixed local browser shortcut handling issue that caused a folder shortcut to open in a new window.
  • Fixed an issue where selecting the login type "prompt for password" would switch to "anonymous" if the username field was blank, The correct behavior would have been to prompt for both the username and the password.
  • Added 4096 KB and 8192 KB as possible TCP/IP Buffer sizes.
  • Fixed an issue where if the previous site used a custom TCP/IP Buffer size and the new site uses (default) the previous site value was used instead of (default).
  • This release addresses 3 memory access read errors that could lead to internal memory corruption within FlashFXP.
  • Fixed a couple issues with the schedule > edit task dialog when scheduling and/or editing existing tasks.

New in version 4.4.1 Build 1998 (August 19th, 2013)

  • Fixed a prompt for password regression where if the user-entered password is invalid or incorrect FlashFXP failed to clear the temporary password and prompt again for a password.

New in version 4.4.0 Build 1997 (August 19th, 2013)

  • Fixed display issue with items shown in the active edits dialog, the default state is to show only active edits however items loaded from the edit history were also shown.

New in version 4.4.0 Build 1996 (August 19th, 2013)

  • Improved the positioning and size of several user interface elements when the OS is configured to scale the display. (additional tweaks)

New in version 4.4.0 Build 1995 (August 19th, 2013)

  • Improved the positioning and size of several user interface elements when the OS is configured to scale the display. (additional tweaks)
  • Fixed a memory corruption issue in a low level string handling routine when copying a string buffer.

New in version 4.4.0 Build 1994 (August 19th, 2013)

  • Drag/drop to the remote navigation tree no longer requires a drop on the caption/icon/button, as long as something is drop highlighted it should accept it.
  • Main menu > sites > key manager > dialog caption renamed to key manager to maintain naming consistency.
  • The local navigation tree now correctly updates when the folder case changes. i.e. MyTEST to myTest.
  • Updated the display mode icons (display all / display active edits) on the Active Edits dialog.
  • Updated the Previous / Next icons on the Language Translation dialog.
  • Improved remote move file/folder confirmation prompts to display the target location in the prompt.
  • Improved the positioning and size of several user interface elements when the OS is configured to scale the display.
  • Updated the 'on transfer complete' confirmation dialog to always appear on the same monitor as the main window.
  • Several fixes and improvements to the language translation dialog.
  • Fixed an issue with sorting the queue list by column; when one or more columns were turned off the list was sorted by the wrong column.
  • Fixed a possible access violation crash when FlashFXP is closed while the "server file search" dialog is open.

New in version 4.4.0 Build 1991 (August 19th, 2013)

  • This update addresses several minor issues that were found via user submitted crash reports.

New in version 4.4.0 Build 1990 (August 8th, 2013)

  • Fixed an issue where some commands sent to the server enforced a 60 second wait timeout, when triggered the connection to the server was automatically closed. While most commands enforce a wait time limit some commands naturally take longer than others and this has lead to some undesired results. I have modified the code to exclude certain commands from the enforced timeout.
  • Fixed caption/option swap in the Preferences dialog > General > Actions. The "Remote file listing" and "URL Clipboard monitor" were swapped.
  • X3, Our graphic designer has independently released several new toolbar button sets for FlashFXP
  • Installing toolbar themes has never been easier simply click the download link for the filename.ffxptheme and opening it with FlashFXP. I am a huge fan of the Vacca VI toolbar set.
  • When using the live update feature to download program updates the "run update" button is now disabled on click to prevent multiple instances of the update installer.
  • Fixed crash when importing invalid XML via the Site Import feature.
  • Fixed dead-lock when importing invalid CSV via the Site Import feature.
  • Fixed crash after importing via the Site Import feature.
  • Fixed crash in Calculate server space used feature when FlashFXP is closed while a search is in progress.
  • Fixed crash in Server file search feature when FlashFXP is closed while a search is in progress.

New in version 4.4.0 Build 1989 (August 8th, 2013)

  • Added the ability to Enqueue > Move Folder Content with wildcard masks.
  • Improved error handling of ProFTPD when incorrectly configured with a low SSL session cache timeout (TLSSessionCache internal: value) the server reports "425 Unable to build data connection: Operation not permitted" and no further data connections are allowed, when this situation is detected FlashFXP will now automatically reconnect to the FTP server.
  • Implemented a possible fix for an error we are seeing in user submitted bug reports where FlashFXP is crashing after receiving a WM_SYSCOLORCHANGE event change message.
  • Changed the behavior when pasting a ftp://user:pass@host:port/path style URL without a path, if the pasted URL doesn't contain a path then the pre-existing path is preserved.

New in version 4.4.0 Build 1988 (June 18th, 2013)

  • New and Improved features:
  • Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.1e.
  • Updated installer engines for the standard and portable releases.
  • Added the ability to change the application data folder after installation via the installer maintenance mode (control panel / programs and features).
  • Update: 4x speed improvement when transferring with ProFTPd/mod_sftp server.
  • Improved error handling and recovery in the event of a connection loss during rename and chmod operations.
  • New feature, when a raw command is executed via the raw command line input and FlashFXP is busy performing an operation the raw command will be en-queued.
  • New global hot-key Ctrl+Shift+/ will change the toolbar background to a random solid color, this can be used to help identify which window is which.
  • Added the ability to set the toolbar background to a custom solid color (no styling) via the Preferences dialog > Interface > Toolbar > background.
  • Added the ability to import toolbar theme packs (.ffxpthemes) to simplify the process of installing and using additional toolbar themes.
  • Changed the order in which sub-folders are deleted when deleting from a remote server.
  • Improved remote drag/drop handler code to improve compatibility and resolve a possible delay when dragging from the remote browser window.
  • Added some additional clean up code to help prevent "System Error. Code: 8." crashes.
  • More info at http://qc.embarcadero.com/wc/qcmain.aspx?d=100600
  • Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed a complex issue that resulted in files being uploaded into the wrong location on the remote server. Specifically if the connection was lost while making a remote folder a series of safety checks would fail to detect that the connection was lost before executing a fragment of code that was intended to handle situations where the remote server renames the folder to suit the server file system, this code inadvertently changed the target path to an incorrect location. To address this issue additional safety checks have been added to verify and validate the reply to the make directory command and the connection status state.
  • Fixed a rare drawing issue in the user interface that effected a small number of users, resulting in overlapping elements where the previous elements were not erased.
  • Fixed: An access violation error in SHLWAPI.dll when sorting the queue list or file list.
  • Fixed several crashes when closing FlashFXP while the "Server file search" dialog is active.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes allowed raw commands via the command line input to be executed while FlashFXP was busy performing an operation.
  • Fixed an issue with global/per-site file transfer rules not applying to scheduled tasks, instead the scheduled task was always applying the task defined file transfer rules, even if none were defined.
  • Fixed scheduled task > new/edit task > schedule tab, the repeat task until setting was allowed to be unchecked on Windows versions prior to Vista, however only Vista and up do not require this setting to be filled in. (This is specific to the Windows Task Scheduler and newer versions of Windows have additional features not found on older versions)
  • Fixed an issue where a scheduled task using a dynamic queue would create a temporary queue file each time the task was run.
  • Fixed several issues with remote edits.
  • If a remote edit was attempted while offline on a file that was previously opened via remote edit during the same session then a file modification was triggered which in turn triggered an automatic upload. (when the default action on save is set to upload)
  • Under some rare conditions If the connection to the server is lost while downloading a file for remote edit then FlashFXP would sometimes mistake this as a successful download, when combined with the prior issue this could result in erasing the remote file.
  • Under some conditions the "active edits" dialog failed to redraw the file list after a failed upload attempt and the 'modified' indicator wasn't drawn.
  • On the "active edits" dialog is a button to switch the view between active edits and all edits; when the display was set to active edits sometimes opening a previously edited file failed to add the active edit into the list.
  • On the "active edits" dialog, the right-click command "ReDownload" was broken.
  • Fixed remote file list item selection; after moving a file/folder via drag/drop the next item in the list appeared to be selected and focused but the correct state was only focused.
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes prevent a ftp upload from being resumed after losing connection to the server.
  • Local browser "On keyboard: Enter Key" now properly handles multiple file selections.
  • Fixed multiple issues with the synchronized browsing feature that sometimes resulted in out of sync browsing.
  • Fixed drag/drop issue where the returned filename ended in a null character. Some users saw this issue appear as the filename being modified on upload as file.ext_ where the null was replaced with a _
  • Fixed: File list item selection glitch when switching focus between windows or scrolling an unfocused file list and then clicking on the item below the cursor.
  • Fixed: Rare crash when dragging files into FlashFXP.
  • Fixed: Drag/drop from local browser and explorer to the remote browser.
  • Fixed: Command line switch /restorequeue was not working correctly.
  • Fixed: Issue with viewing UTF-8/non-Latin characters in filenames.
  • Fixed: When setting the file date/time for site to site file transfers the wrong time was set under some conditions. (Additional cases were found and the code has been updated.)
  • Fixed: slow SFTP upload speed when uploading to a Sun sshd based server. We tweaked some compatibility improvements that were made awhile back restore the performance back to full speed.
  • Fixed: Attempting to delete items from a remote server while working off-line would randomly fail to delete anything, the connection was restored but the item selection was sometimes lost during the reconnect.
  • Fixed a SOCKS5 regression issue that prevented FlashFXP from connecting via SOCKS5.
  • Fixed keyboard multi-selection issue when using the ctrl and shift keyboard modifiers.
  • Fixed access violation error that could occur under some conditions within the disconnect event handler.
  • Fixed the window position of the Goto dialog prompt in the Editor.
  • Fixed an issue where connecting to a FTP server anonymously would sometimes fail to send a user name during login. (REF #841)
  • Fixed an issue in the Calculate disk space dialog when redrawing the directory list after clicking on a column header to change the sort order. (REF #840)
  • Fixed a NVDA screen reader issue when reading the status bar captions (REF #835)
  • Fixed a potential lockup when forcing a disconnect on a remote server.
  • Fixed a SOCKS5 compatibility issue using active mode (PORT) when connecting to a server via a hostname.
  • Fixed a couple issues where a scheduled task would fail to transfer the files and the error wasn't shown in the task scheduler.
  • Fixed an issue where a scheduled task would attempt to prompt the user if the server certificate or host key wasn't trusted, now automatically rejects any untrusted hosts.
  • Fixed an access violation crash if FlashFXP is closed via the task-bar while a child dialog is waiting for user input.
  • Fixed an issue where the estimated queue remaining time was incorrectly calculated when uploading.
  • Fixed an issue where the mouse cursor disappears when trying to drag/drop move in the remote file browser.
  • Fixed an issue where if the server connection is refused or times out it could lead to a dead lock in FlashFXP causing it to appear frozen for up to 30 seconds due to an unnecessary delay in the close socket method.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in broken FTP file uploads using an active mode (PORT) data connection.

New in version 4.3.1 Build 1977 (June 2nd, 2013)

  • Improved error handling and recovery in the event of a connection loss during rename and chmod operations

New in version 4.3.1 Build 1975 (June 2nd, 2013)

  • Fixed a complex issue that resulted in files being uploaded into the wrong location on the remote server. Specifically if the connection was lost while making a remote folder a series of safety checks would fail to detect that the connection was lost before executing a fragment of code that was intended to handle situations where the remote server renames the folder to suit the server file system, this code inadvertently changed the target path to an incorrect location. To address this issue additional safety checks have been added to verify and validate the reply to the make directory command and the connection status state.

New in version 4.3.1 Build 1971 (June 2nd, 2013)

  • Fixed a rare drawing issue in the user interface that effected a small number of users, resulting in overlapping elements where the previous elements were not erased.

New in version 4.3.1 Build 1970 (May 24th, 2013)

  • Fixed a rare drawing issue in the user interface that effected a small number of users, resulting in overlapping elements where the previous elements were not erased.
  • Fixed: An access violation error in SHLWAPI.dll when sorting the queue list or file list.

New in version 5.0.0 Build 3615 Beta (May 21st, 2013)

  • Unicode support for translations and all user interfaces dialogs and text.
  • Full UTF-8 support for remote servers.
  • Full support for converting non-UTF-8 remote server content to UTF-8. The server character encoding can be set via the Site Manager.
  • New memory based caching system for remote server directory listings.
  • This version of FlashFXP is compiled with Delphi 7 while previous versions were compiled with Delphi 4.
  • All data files used by v5.x use a updated data format that is not backwards compatible with previous versions. Specifically all data files are now UTF8 encoded.
  • The .fqf (FlashFXP queue file format) has changed in v5.x, The format has been optimized to reduce the overall file size and it now uses UTF8 encoding. The new format is not backwards compatible.
  • The .ftp (FlashFXP Site XML Export format) has changed, additional site settings are now included in the export, This format does not export all site profile settings.
  • The .fbk (FlashFXP backup file format) has changed, backups created by v5.x should not be restored to previous versions of FlashFXP.

New in version 4.3.0 Build 1940 (March 12th, 2013)

  • Updated languages.
  • FTP: Fixed issue with anonymous logins and no USER name being sent during login. (REF #841)

New in version 4.3.0 Build 1933 (February 14th, 2013)

  • New and Improved features:
  • Updated SFTP engine to the latest version.
  • Improved screen reader support. If you find some issues please let us know so that we can get them resolved. We've tested with Windows-Eyes and NVDA. All controls should now provide proper descriptions when tabbed, mouse over, or selected.
  • Many improvements to the task scheduler. (when modifying or creating a task the syntax and parameters used by FlashFXP have changed, These changes are not backwards compatible with previous releases.)
  • Improved FTP uploading where the connection would sometimes be dropped at the end of the transfer.
  • Many code optimizations and performance (speed) improvements.
  • Added [Site Manager] multiple select to the site list. This should make it easier to manage sites, specifically when wanting to delete or move a selection of sites at a time.
  • Improved [Preserve File Date/Upload] feature, this operation is now executed as a separate operation after the file transfer completes, this is done so that if the command fails it doesn't confuse the user into thinking the transfer failed. More information is available on our website at http://www.flashfxp.com/forum/flashfxp/faq/15850-video-file-upload-hangs-99%.html
  • Changed [Task Schedule] property repeat until configuration to allow "until" to be optional, when unchecked the task will run indefinitely. Previously there was no clear way to set this.
  • Added [Translation] input validation for the Personal ID number field.
  • Improved [Queue/Operation] en-queue delete logic to check to see if the same file/folder is queued for transfer and re-order the delete operation if determined that the file would be deleted prior to transfer. Most users would want to delete the file after the transfer not before. This check is on the source file location.
  • Added [file list] icon shortcut overlays to symbolic links to files, when the file is detected as a symbolic link, not all servers will indicate when a file is actually a symbolic link.
  • Improved [tree navigation] performance by eliminating a bottleneck that resulted in a 50% speed increase during certain operations.
  • Added the ability to drop external folders/shortcuts on the local browser address bar to quickly jump to the folder of the dropped item.
  • Improved performance (6x speed increase) when transferring many small files over low latency connections.
  • Added the ability to use the keyboard shortcut shift+End during a rename (f2) to select the whole filename.
  • Changed the way data channel sockets/objects are created and managed to improve efficiency and performance.
  • Improved the way site to site transfers are aborted. This new method has been tested with pure-ftpd, gene6 ftp, proftpd, glftpd, ioftpd, vsftpd, drftpd, and serv-u.
  • Added a file replace dialog when attempting to move a file into a location that already contains a file with the same name allowing the user to select the desired action, overwrite, skip, rename, cancel.
  • Improved the user experience (reduced flicker) when minimizing and restoring the main window to/from the maximized state.
  • Improved content layout and position when using large fonts or font scaling.
  • Bug fixes:
  • Fixed [Task Schedule] property 'Expire on' setting, the setting wasn't being set correctly when FlashFXP was run on Windows Vista or newer.
  • Fixed [server/transfer/abort] access violation when the server returned a multi-line reply during an abort operation.
  • Fixed [interface/prompts] FlashFXP would sometimes disappear from the task list (alt+tab) when certain child windows were active.
  • Fixed [browser/file list] issue that prevented renaming under Wine.
  • Fixed [LiveUpdate] crash when canceling a "check for upgrade".
  • Fixed [Site Manager] crash when performing a site list search when the selected site is modified and not yet saved. (error occurred while displaying the save changes prompt)
  • Fixed [FTP/PROXY/MODE Z] download/listing issue when using a SOCKS Proxy on a FTP server with MODE Z enabled.
  • Fixed [Application] crash (Invalid Pointer Operation) triggered under some conditions when using a screen reader with FlashFXP.
  • Fixed [Application] text drawing gitches while in screen reader mode.
  • Fixed [Application] double buffer drawing with DWM composition enabled.
  • Fixed list-view column text, it was rendered upside down and reversed on some systems.
  • Added a 60 second data socket connection timeout, this is the maximum time FlashFXP wait for a data connection to connect.
  • Fixed an issue where the Windows 7 taskbar progress would incorrectly start at 90%.
  • Fixed an issue where the user was unable to transfer any files after canceling a transfer, the cancel flag was not reset in some situations.
  • Fixed [server file search/result list] issue where symbolic links weren't shown with the shortcut overlay icon.
  • Fixed [server file search/delete operation] issue where symbolic links were treated as folders when in fact they should of been treated as files.
  • Fixed [queue list] item selection issue when the queue list is focused using the tab key on the keyboard. The selected items might appear selected but attempting to perform an operation such as delete would fail.
  • Fixed [server/operation] issue when trying to move a file or folder, the operation could fail without any indication as to why it failed.
  • Fixed [server file search] crash if you close FlashFXP while the server file search is dialog open.
  • Fixed [status window] drawing issue where in some situations the last 2-3 lines of text might be delayed and not shown until the FlashFXP window was activated or the status window was scrolled.
  • Fixed a couple focus/selection issues when using tab and ctrl+tab.
  • Fixed a application crash triggered during the SSL/TLS connection handshake.
  • Several minor fixes in the remote sever search feature.
  • Several minor fixes in the remote file edits feature.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented FlashFXP from shutting down correctly under some conditions and leaving the FlashFXP process running.
  • Fixed an issue that could sometimes result in erroneous transfer failed message on connection lost when there was no transfer in progress.
  • Fixed an issue triggered after completing a remote server search or closing the remote server search dialog where the current remote directory listing might not display the correct content for the current directory.
  • The default value for TCP/IP Keep Alives has changed from 2 minutes to 120 minutes.
  • Fixed several issues when performing a remote move folder operation.
  • Under some conditions the connect and disconnect buttons were not enabled when they should have been. Fixed.
  • Changed the way the local browser handles windows shortcuts when "use accurate shell icons" is unchecked.
  • Fixed a many UI elements that weren't properly scaled/positioned when using large fonts.
  • Sometimes FlashFXP would display double confirmation prompts when FlashFXP is closed. Fixed.
  • Fixed several problems related related to the liveupdate feature, specifically when launching the newly downloaded update.
  • Fixed a situation where the local browser could appear blank and or not update correctly after a non-critical failure while navigating.
  • Fixed [upload] file read error during file upload.
  • Fixed [window/state] when restoring FlashFXP from the system tray if the previous window state was maximized then under some conditions the window state might not be restored.
  • Fixed [thread/timer] a race condition in timer/helper thread. This race condition caused things in FlashFXP to malfunction. Such as the local browser wouldn't update automatically to show new/modified files in the current folder.
  • Fixed [socket/bind] error when using FlashFXP with a transparent proxy such as Proxifier, where opening the data connection would fail with a Data Socket Error: Can't assign requested address.
  • Fixed [DNS] When resolving the server hostname some DNS servers are returning two identical IP records, if the connection fails this can result in an immediate retry attempt and an endless loop ignoring any defined retry delay.
  • Fixed [server file search dialog] the "look in" field couldn't be selected via the tab key.
  • Fixed [Proxy/Socks5] compatibility issue when connecting to some Socks5 servers using the hostname of the FTP/SFTP server. Connecting with a IP address was unaffected.
  • Fixed MLST issue with PS3 FTP server (multiman).
  • Fixed [socket/receive buffer] contained stale data on the control connection, in some situations the receive buffer wasn't cleared prior to a re-connection attempt following a connection failure. This issue was detected when using a Socks5 proxy but it's likely that other situations also triggered this issue.
  • Right clicking in the tree navigation wasn't changing the active side selection bar (below the browser panes) when the current browser wasn't focused/selected. Fixed.
  • Fixed access violation error that would sometimes occur when renaming a folder.

New in version 4.2.5 Build 1813 (August 6th, 2012)

  • Bug fixes:
  • Fixed: Selective transfer rules aren't being applied correctly, in some cases either they're completely ignored or all files are skipped.
  • Fixed: In some cases FlashFXP would crash when using a screen reader while hovering over some text or when closing a child window.
  • Fixed compatibility issue with NVDA screen reader when hovering over a richedit control, this problem is caused by a bug in NVDA but I have found a way to work around it until they fix the problem.
  • Fixed: When the option "request file size/date prior to transfer" is enabled FlashFXP will now check to see if the source file still exists before performing a site to site transfer, this will eliminate additional delays should the file no longer exist, and depending on the FTP server software aborting a site to site transfer isn't very reliable. On *nix servers it often fails.
  • Fixed: When connecting to a site profile stored in the site manager via the command line or via Win7 jump-list the site would sometimes appear in your quick connect list, deleting the site from the quick connect would also delete it from your site manager. This should now be resolved. Site profile sites should not be added to the quick connect site list.
  • Fixed: When dropping a file into the file list sometimes the drop-highlight state wasn't reset after the drop, leaving the item to appear selected.
  • Fixed: We recently changed the download behavior to compare the local file size against the remote file size to ensure the file was downloaded completely, however this caused problems with downloading files that are updated during the transfer, such as log files, so this behavior has been removed.

New in version 4.2.5 Build 1810 (August 6th, 2012)

  • Bug fixes:
  • Fixed: En-queued local delete folder operations were ignoring the optional user-defined file mask and the include sub-folder settings.
  • Fixed: En-queued remote delete operations would fail to execute when run from a scheduled task and displayed a user-interactive error prompt.
  • Fixed: When downloading a remote file, if the connection is lost before any data is transmitted then the wrong file transfer rule could be applied. This situation should trigger the user defined action for the "On transfer error" rule but instead it uses the normal file transfer rules, or if the default rule is set to prompt and the user selects skip all, resume all, overwrite all, then that action was used.

New in version 4.2.5 Build 1807 (July 27th, 2012)

  • Improved features:
  • Improved the aborting procedure of FTP file transfers to take into consideration delayed replies from the FTP server.
  • Improved SFTP compatibility with Sun_SSH, Previous versions were unable to upload.
  • Improved SFTP compatibility with mod_sftp, Previous versions could corrupt the file during upload.
  • Improved SFTP upload transfer speed (50-70% faster) with many SFTP servers.
  • Improved support for FlashFXP running on legacy versions of Windows and Windows with themes disabled.
  • Improved file date/time handling on FTP servers that use the older LIST style directory output. If the file time is not available then date/time comparison is limited to the date.
  • Improved preserve date/time on upload to ensure the date/time is set, if the control connection is lost at the end of the file transfer then the set file date/time operation is en-queued until the connection can be restored.
  • New Features:
  • Added an option to randomly select a toolbar background on start-up.
  • Added an option to turn off TCP/IP keep-alives and adjust the keep-alive interval.
  • Bug fixes:
  • Fixed a rare critical section dead lock the threaded event timer. I suspect that this issue caused the remote edit feature in FlashFXP to malfunction, as well as other event related features.
  • Fixed multiple issues that could cause FlashFXP to crash on start up when run as a scheduled task.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent the user from saving a queue file to disk.
  • Fixed an issue where the local or remote browser were ending up in different locations after transferring a file. Sometimes one would revert back to the original location prior to the transfer, or use the default path stored in the site profile.
  • Fixed several user-interface glitches where the content wasn't properly updated or redrawn.

New in version 4.2.4 Build 1784 (June 15th, 2012)

  • Improved features:
  • Improved window minimize compatibility with DisplayFusion and other 3rd party task-bar replacements.
  • Improved compatiblity with OpenSSH+HPN and HPI VMS behind a MultiPath SFTP server.
  • Added support for right-click drag and then drop into a single local browser window.
  • Bug fixes:
  • Fixed issue when en-queued local delete operations when queued in-between remote file operations which resulted in the remote server being disconnected and re-connected, and in some cases the re-connect would fail due to a race condition.
  • Fixed issue with remote edit legacy prompt, resulting in the prompt window being always on top of all windows.
  • Fixed issue with expanding folders for upload file transfer when not connected to the target server.
  • Fixed issue with x.509 client certificate authentication when connecting to FTP SSL/TLS servers. OpenSSL was failing to load the client certificate.
  • Fixed issue with en-queued sever delete operations. The deleted file wasn't correctly removed from the internal directory cache, triggering a file exists prompt/comparison rule when the delete operation was followed by a file upload with the same name as the deleted file.
  • Fixed issue with the remote directory disk cache manager that could sometimes prevent FlashFXP from shutting down correctly.
  • Fixed off screen window placement issue, in some cases such as switching between single and dual monitors the main child windows could sometimes end up positioned off screen.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented FlashFXP from successfully logging into some servers.

New in version 4.2.4 Build 1783 (June 12th, 2012)

  • Improved features:
  • Improved window minimize compatibility with DisplayFusion and other 3rd party task-bar replacements.
  • Improved compatiblity with OpenSSH+HPN and HPI VMS behind a MultiPath SFTP server.
  • Bug fixes:
  • Fixed issue when en-queued local delete operations when queued in-between remote file operations which resulted in the remote server being disconnected and re-connected, and in some cases the re-connect would fail due to a race condition.
  • Fixed issue with remote edit legacy prompt, resulting in the prompt window being always on top of all windows.
  • Fixed issue with expanding folders for upload file transfer when not connected to the target server.
  • Fixed issue with x.509 client certificate authentication when connecting to FTP SSL/TLS servers. OpenSSL was failing to load the client certificate.
  • Fixed issue with en-queued sever delete operations. The deleted file wasn't correctly removed from the internal directory cache, triggering a file exists prompt/comparison rule when the delete operation was followed by a file upload with the same name as the deleted file.

  • Fixed an issue that prevented FlashFXP from successfully logging into some servers.

New in version 4.2.3 Build 1770 (May 12th, 2012)

  • Security updates:
  • Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.1c.
  • OpenSSL Security Advisory
  • Improved features:
  • Improved file upload routine to keep the file open throughout the entire upload process, this should eliminate issues where FlashFXP attempts to upload the file only to have it fail with an open/access error.
  • Added the ability to store x509 certificates/ssh keys with a passphrase, you will be prompted to enter a password any time the certificate or ssh key is loaded.
  • Improved logical/natural sorting. The hybrid method we were using didn't always match the operating system.
  • Improved FTP directory list handling and parsing. Typically each entry should end in a CR/LF, but this isn't always the case and some FTP servers use LF or CR.
  • Improved the behavior of Transfer (via queue list > right-click ), if the connection attempt is delaying for retry it will now trigger a reconnect, rather than waiting the duration of the retry delay.
  • Improved drawing of the file list, in some cases moving the mouse over the file list would cause some items to randomly erase and not draw correctly.
  • Bug fixes:
  • Fixed a bug in the UNIX style list parser when parsing certain timestamps and as a result the entry displayed the wrong timestamp.
  • Fixed [interface/keyboard] issue that prevented item selection/unselection when using control+space key combination.

New in version 4.2.2 Build 1760 (April 21st, 2012)

  • Security updates:
  • Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.1a.

  • Improved local browser re-sort method on automatic refresh.
  • Improved error handling in the local folder select dialog.
  • Improved the method used to keep a folder cache state in sync with the tree navigation cached icon.
  • Improved automatic SSCN command switching and error handling when performing secure site to site transfers.
  • Improved toolbar/buttons rendering, some older systems had problems rendering the 32-bit button images with a alpha channel, resulting in a solid color (non-transparent) box around each button.
  • Improved toolbar backgrounds to support transparent PNG images.
  • Improved placement, position and size of translated text in several locations.
  • Improved support for files and folders containing a forward slash (\) as part of the name on unix based systems.
  • Improved font size for the local browser text on the toolbar, the font size now scales to better match the toolbar button size.
  • The shortcut key for "Connection Type" in the Quick Connect dialog has changed to Alt+E.
  • Bug fixes:
  • Fixed: [Advanced Transfer] The Queue As and Transfer As features now bypass the skip-list rules.
  • Fixed: [remote browser] The ctrl + v shortcut for view file did not always work.
  • Fixed: [UTF-8] The UTF-8/ANSI text conversion was failing on filenames that were only 1 character long.
  • Fixed: [FTP/MLST] Our previous fix for the PS3 FTP Server/multiMAN MLST issue has resulted in an unexpected compatibility issue with other servers, resulting in the wrong date/time and file size being detected, the wrong file transfer rule can be applied and the wrong date/time set on downloads.
  • Fixed: Lockup when connecting to two sites at the exact same time.
  • Fixed: When using the enqueue / rename feature the internal directory cache was not reset to reflect the changes.
  • Fixed issue with MLSD failing to handle unix.mode with a non-standard value.
  • Fixed two separate situations that could cause FlashFXP to crash on shutdown.

  • Fixed: FlashFXP was not remembering the maximized window state when closed while the window is minimized.
  • Fixed: After deleting a file the file list would sometimes stop redrawing correctly.
  • Fixed: [ftp/ssl] empty directory listing, this occurred when the data socket was closed during the SSL handshake.

New in version 4.2.1 Build 1744 (April 21st, 2012)

  • New and Improved features:
  • Improved [ftp] folder path name handling when performing operations on the server, specifically when the folder name changes as a result of the FTP server. A folder named "test" may be entered by the user but the server might name the folder as "TEST".
  • Improved UNIX:L8 directory list parser to better handle directory listings where the group or owner field contains a space.
  • Improved internal image-list stream loading/saving. A compatibility issue in the old method could cause FlashFXP to crash immediately on start-up on some operating systems.
  • Improved and updated the theme manager component. The update addresses an issue found in the original theme manager that failed to insure the window handle for the sub-classed component was valid, If the handle was invalid it could cause FlashFXP crash.
  • Improved threaded timer callback routines, Some rare situations could trigger a race condition which could cause FlashFXP to crash.
  • Improved performance of the server file search and calculate disk space features by replacing the lookup list container with a faster hash lookup list container.
  • Upgraded OpenSSL to v1.0.1.
  • Improved compatibility with PS3 FTP Server/multiMAN, The MLST command unexpectedly returns multiple non-matching entries causing a conflict when evaluating the file transfer rules.
  • Improved [server compatibility] We now attempt to detect "mTCP FTP server" and "PS3 FTP Server" during login, when detected FlashFXP will issue the standard LIST command without any parameters.
  • Improved [server compatibility] We now attempt to login with ANSI and/or UTF8 encoded username and password on login failure, some FTP servers require UTF8 while others require ANSI with no way to determine.
  • Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed [remote/tree navigation] an issue where the cached overlay icon displayed on the tree navigation wasn't removed after uploading files into the folder.
  • Fixed [connection/retry] There was a very small chance of a race condition when aborting the connection attempt that could result in FlashFXP locking up.
  • Fixed: [local browser/sorting] In some situations the sort comparison was comparing the wrong data.
  • Fixed: [sftp] The connection lost status message was reporting the wrong idle time.
  • Fixed: [download/upload] On write failure the file stream object was freed twice which could lead to memory corruption.
  • Fixed: [application/event timer] When closing FlashFXP the event thread could crash as a result of the owner being freed before the thread loop exited.
  • Fixed: [local browser/drop-down box] Unable to insert a line. error, the drop-down list failed to clear the entries on close up eventually running out of space.
  • Fixed: [remote edit / auto upload] In some cases FlashFXP didn't detect when the local file was saved.
  • Fixed: [remote edit / legacy prompt] When using legacy prompt mode and opening the file in the internal text editor the upload prompt would appear on top of the internal editor preventing the file from being edited.
  • Fixed: [remote browser / rename] Under some conditions performing a rename didn't set the browser state to busy, allowing the user to perform unsafe operations while in the middle of performing the rename operation.
  • Fixed: [remote browser / delete] Under some conditions delete was incorrectly disabled and prevented the user from performing the operation.
  • Fixed: [application] A performance bottleneck in the main application message loop resulted in a wide range of issues, non-ssl ftp downloads were being throttled, audio stuttering (text-to-speech) when using NVDA screen-reader, were a couple of the main issues noticed.
  • Fixed: [server/set file attributes dialog] Incorrect tab order when pressing the tab key to switch focus to the next control.
  • Fixed: [sftp/download] When disk write error occurred during download the file transfer wasn't stopped immediately.
  • Fixed: [server/download] A bug in the cache lookup system resulted in some upload file transfers being overwritten without prompting the user.
  • Fixed: [installer] The installer didn't always update existing language files and sometimes it installed languages that weren't installed.

New in version 4.2.0 Build 1730 (March 5th, 2012)

  • New and Improved features:
  • Added: [preferences/view and edit file] New option to include "View and Edit" in edit history, previously local edits were included and this was not desirable for everyone. The default value is unchecked.
  • Added: [live update] integrity check of the downloaded setup and on failure the ability to use an alternative download location.
  • Added: [session/speed limits] You can now set/adjust the session speed limits via the session menu, or by right-clicking the speed limit icon in the status-bar.
  • Added: Holding down the shift key while selecting Copy to clipboard > HTTP URL will open the url in your default web browser.
  • Added: [sftp] A fallback solution for sftp servers where the sftp-subsystem is not enabled, but the sftp-server binary is installed.
  • Added: [queue/list] The ability to hide/show the columns (Target, Size, and Remark) in the queue window, right-click on the column header for the menu.
  • Improved: [Server File Search] These improvements were made to the error handling, command execution, and sub-search filtering.
  • Improved Implicit SSL connection handshaking and auto switching from Implicit SSL to Explicit SSL if a standard plain text FTP server reply is received.
  • Improved CPU usage when connecting to two servers at the same time.
  • Improved the speed in which FlashFXP exits, depending on what FlashFXP was doing there were situations where FlashFXP might take a minute or more to actually exit.
  • Improved: [Site Manager] Loading and saving site profiles is now faster.
  • Improved: [file transfer rules/validation] In certain cases a file transfer rule could be considered invalid with a prior rule taking priority, however there was no indication if this.
  • Changed: [file transfers] When the "remove failed transfers from queue" setting was enabled it bypassed the "retry failed transfers" feature, To resolve this issue a failed item is kept in the queue until the retry limit has been reached and then it is removed.
  • Changed: The connection status icons (encryption, speed limiting, compression) are now always displayed on the status-bar.
  • Changed: [folder bookmarks/synchronized browsing] Previous versions of FlashFXP had a setting named "Use synchronized browsing" on the bookmark dialog, this has been replaced with a drop-down box allowing 3 different states.
  • Default - uses the current synchronized browsing mode.
  • Enabled - turns on synchronized browsing, if it isn't already on.
  • Disabled - turns off synchronized browsing, if it is already on.
  • Changed: [local browser/drag&drop] All drag/drop operations between local browser windows now correctly support the ctrl and shift keyboard modifiers.
  • Changed: [local browser/local to local/drag&drop] The behavior of the "local to local" drag/drop option has changed, Now this option will only change the default behavior for drag/drop between the local browsers, it will not effect drag/drop between the tree navigation and the file list within the local browser pane.
  • Changed: [tool-bars] Eliminated unnecessary repainting when toggling tool-bar buttons.
  • Changed: [network/sockets] The way we use TCP keep-alives has changed. Now TCP keep-alives are only enabled on the control channel when a data channel is active.
  • Changed: [tool bar/background] Changes to the way the tool-bar background is rendered, eliminating some unnecessary erasing/drawing.
  • Changed: [sftp] When using public key authentication FlashFXP will skip any keyboard-interactive password prompts and use the public key.
  • Changed: [on transfer complete/shutdown computer] The original design didn't allow FlashFXP to shut down the computer if the user session was locked. This has been changed, FlashFXP will now try the normal way first and if windows reports that the session is locked it will attempt to force the shutdown.
  • Changed: [remote edit] FlashFXP uses the last write file date/time stamp to determine if the file is modified, this value is only accurate to the nearest 2 seconds, as a result a quick edit and save could occur without detection. To address the problem we now set the file date/time stamp to an earlier time.
  • Changed: [remote edit/upload prompt] The site name is now displayed in the caption of the remote edit upload prompt.
  • Changed: [remote/navigation tree] The sort order now matches the file list which uses a natural word based sort.
  • Improved: [download/transfers] I eliminated a couple unnecessary file operations.
  • Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.0g
  • Minor improvements to the setup installer script, The installer now uses a new method to detect if FlashFXP is running.
  • Improved: [tool-bar/backgrounds] Using a custom background with certain display layouts. In some cases the end result wasn't what you might expect.
  • Improved: [sftp/server specific] Addressed a compatibility issue with JSCAPE SFTP server. This issue resulted in random disconnects.
  • Updated SFTP engine to latest version.
  • Improved: [socket/connections] The way socket connections are established.
  • Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed: [Buffer Overflow Vulnerability] Discovered by vulnerability-lab.com, A flaw in the VCL components (TListbox and TComboBox) resulted in a buffer overflow. I have resolved the issue in the components and added additional input validation.
  • Fixed: [file transfers] If the retry failed transfer count was set to retry 0 times and the connection is lost, FlashFXP made no attempt to reconnect and transfer any files remaining in the queue.
  • Fixed: [file list/columns] The remote file browser was not properly sizing the columns when only the name column is visible and the auto size column setting was off.
  • Fixed: [tool-bar/states] The queue/transfer selected buttons are no longer enabled when just the parent directory entry is selected. Since this is not a valid selection.
  • Fixed: [Server file search] Searching by date incorrectly used the server date/time and was not adjusting for any server time zone offset.
  • Fixed: [Portable Installer] In some cases the portable installer was failing when run via from the update check.
  • Fixed: [local browser/drag&drop] The state of the drag cursor did not reflect the actual operation that was performed on drop between local browser panes.
  • Fixed: [logging] When disk logging was disabled there was still an attempt to log the session summary on transfer queue completion.
  • Fixed: [file transfers] The "retry failed transfers" setting was counting the first failure as 1 and as a result a retry count of 1 would not retry the transfer.
  • Fixed: [file transfers] The "remove failed transfers from queue" setting wasn't working as intended and when this option was enabled a directory failure could result in an end-less loop.
  • Fixed: [local browser] Drive/device error when attempting to read the icon from a shortcut that points to an invalid location.
  • Fixed: [local browser/tree navigation] shift and ctrl key modifiers for drag and drop operations.
  • Fixed: [server/connect] In some cases the connection failure error message was incorrectly reporting "connection refused" as "connection timeout".
  • Fixed: [server/connect] The IP address list from a DNS lookup was not cleared between connection attempts. This was an issue when connected to Site A via a host-name, disconnecting, then connecting to Site B via an IP. If the connection attempt to Site B failed a the retry was attempted using the IP from Site A.
  • Fixed: [tray icon] Rapidly hiding and showing the main window could result in a race condition where the main window became hidden and the tray icon is removed.
  • Fixed: Closing FlashFXP while minimized to the system tray could cause FlashFXP to crash while exiting.
  • Fixed: [scheduled tasks/logging/email] If the task was configured to send an email and include the log for say failed transfers but logging of failed transfers was disabled, a empty log of the failed transfers was included in the email. Now if logging is disabled there is no reference to the log file in the email.
  • Fixed: [local browser/menu] The local browser/file list control menu on the right pane decided to stop working for us. Its now back in action.
  • Fixed: [remote edit/upload] If the user disconnects from site A while a prompt for upload is active, then connects to site B and clicks Yes on the upload prompt this could result in a crash or an unpredictable result.
  • Fixed: [remote browser/file list] When renaming an item the item selection state was lost, the item with the new name is now re-selected.
  • Fixed: [update/installer] When updating FlashFXP portable edition the update installer might install the update into the wrong folder if the pathname contained a space due to a missing double-quote.
  • Fixed: [site manager/statistics] A defect was discovered resulting in incorrect stats.
  • Fixed: [active edits dialog] hovering the mouse over an entry in the list could result in a range-check error while displaying the entry tool-tip if the time of the download was more than a couple weeks.
  • Fixed: [remote/move folder dialog] More fixes, en-queue > move was broken and when entering a non-cached folder the path shown in the box did not match the folder selection.
  • Fixed: [ftp/download] One of the fixes in our previous release re-introduced an issue that caused FlashFXP to hang on zero byte files.
  • Fixed: [active edits dialog] Delete was disabled after de-selecting an entry from the list.
  • Fixed: [console/ANSI parser] The ANSI color parser used in the status window contained a flaw that attempted to read past the end of the string resulting in unpredictable crashes.

New in version 4.1.8 Build 1701 (January 16th, 2012)

  • This hot fix makes FlashFXP compatible with Windows XP service pack 1 and service pack 2, The previous release required Windows XP service pack 3 to run.

  • Changed: [interface/toolbar] Added auto font scaling to The "local browser" text shown on the toolbar.
  • Changed: [task/scheduler] You can now manually execute disabled tasks using the "Run now" command. Previously it would indicate that the task was disabled.
  • Fixed: [task/scheduler] Monthly tasks scheduled to run on "first, second, third, etc" day of the week weren't being set properly on vista and up, and older versions of windows only allow a single value but the control incorrectly allowed multiple choices.
  • Fixed: [server/session] Under some conditions server replies were displayed twice in the session window/log.
  • Fixed: [server/select folder dialog] The dialog wasn't scaling the content correctly when using a non-standard screen text DPI.
  • Fixed: [queue/list] Previous builds would sometimes show blank entries, this should now be fixed.
  • Fixed: [ftp/MVS] Back in build 1669 we introduced a change that broke compatibility with MVS FTP servers resulting in incomplete downloads. This has been resolved.
  • Fixed: [ftp/ssl/download] In some rare instances the downloaded file could end up incomplete due to the way FlashFXP was handling the SSL shutdown.
  • Fixed: [mouse wheel/scrolling] Sometimes would throw an error "Cannot focus an invisible or disabled window"
  • Fixed: [tree navigation] Items in the tree weren't always color coded, either by the skiplist or the highlighting.
  • Fixed: [skiplist] The skiplist wasn't always being applied to files that were dragged from the local browser and dropped on the remote browser.
  • Fixed: [key manager] Closing the key manager while creating a certificate would sometimes result in a crash while aborting the certificate generator thread.

New in version 4.1.7 Build 1688 (December 20th, 2011)

  • Improved http proxy and ftp ssl/tls handshakes.
  • Improved passive mode connections via a proxy server.
  • Fixed: [ftp/list/parser] trailing spaces in file/folder names were being truncated.
  • Fixed: [ftp/ssl] Improved and addressed some issues related to ssl session re-use on the data connection socket.
  • Fixed: [ftp/ssl] When closing the ssl session of a data connection FlashFXP wasn't waiting for an answer from the server, technically this is acceptable but could be a security risk? This change makes FlashFXP compatible with vsftpd when the config setting strict_ssl_read_eof=Yes
  • Upgraded SFTP engine to the latest version.
  • Fixed: [UI/drawing/non-themed] a small area of the toolbar background wasn't being painted correctly and displayed random colors.
  • Fixed: [ftp/upload] In some situations the upload would fail with a "File Read Error".

  • Improved: [site configuration] Site Manager > FTP > Option "Use site IP for passive mode connections". The previous build wasn't using this option correctly causing a malfunction on some FTP servers.
  • Fixed: [transfer/case conversion] Filename case conversion option when using 'first character upper case' the first character was not upper-cased.
  • Fixed: [queue] When performing an en-queued delete operation if the connection to the server was lost then FlashFXP did not mark the delete operation as failed and go onto the next item in the queue.
  • Improved: [local browser/tree] The performance of local browser tree navigation when navigating network file locations.
  • Fixed: [task scheduler/task] When using the weekly schedule and selecting Wednesday, it would report a COM error "the parameter is incorrect".

  • Added: [custom commands] the ability to create symbolic links (SFTP protocol) using a custom command, the syntax is "SITE SYMLINK "
  • Misc: More general tweaks, improvements, fixes and optimizations

New in version 4.1.6 Build 1673 (November 18th, 2011)

  • Improved status-bar panel width sizing for text translations, specifically during a file transfer the panel width would re-size to fit the length of text plus time which could fluctuate between hh:mm:ss and mm:ss changing the width of the panel, now the panel is sized to fit the translation + hh:mm:ss.
  • Deleting a symbolic link to a folder via the tree navigation now treats the symbolic link as a file delete operation instead of a folder delete.
  • Cleaned up the site name displayed in the Active Edits window.
  • Improved remote edit feature to auto reconnect and re-upload the file in the event of a connection loss during the file upload.
  • Fixed symbolic links on FTP servers using MLSD, in some cases the symbolic links were not displayed.

  • Fixed drawing issue in the text editor when when resizing the window or toggling word wrap.
  • Fixed excessively long wait when aborting a file transfer when using FTP+SSL, sometimes the abort could take up to 2 minutes to complete.
  • Fixed memory leak triggered by aborting a FTP upload using MODE Z. The Zlib compression object wasn't properly finalized to free the internal memory buffer.
  • Fixed FTP+SSL download issue that sometimes resulted in a transfer error even though the transfer was successful, this was caused by the way the SSL connection was shutdown.
  • Fixed access violation crash when running FlashFXP on windows 2000 or with themes disabled when in the Preferences dialog > Toolbars section. We missed a test to verify themes before attempting to use them to draw the default background.
  • Fixed access violation crash that can occur when switching between the local and remote browser.
  • Fixed a defect that prevented ASCII files from downloading 100% on some FTP servers, the transfer would appear frozen or stalled and would eventually time out.

  • The remote navigation tree wasn't populated correctly when connecting to sites with a pre-defined remote path.

New in version 4.1.5 Build 1667 (November 8th, 2011)

  • Fixed an issue that resulted a false positive error "Change Folder Failure: (5: Access is denied)" during upload. The IO result wasn't cleared before testing for failure.
  • Fixed an issue where switching between MLSD and LIST (or stat -al) didn't correctly clear the remote folder cache.
  • Added a work-around specifically for XeXMenu FTPD 0.1 to address an issue when navigating into empty folders.
  • Fixed an issue where the oldest site in the quick connect history was removed when the history limit was reached, instead of removing the site with the oldest last connection time.
  • Fixed an issue where FlashFXP was throttling the rate at which commands were sent to the server, this was most noticeable during recursive deletes and when transferring many small files.
  • Fixed changing the per-site preserve file date/time settings in the file transfer rules dialog didn't take immediate effect.
  • Fixed proxy/connection failure when connecting to an sftp server, resulting in an error message 'SSH Error: The packet is too large.'
  • Fixed a connection failure that occurred under the following conditions, connect to a ftp+ssl server and then disconnect before the ssl handshake completes, now connecting to a non-ssl ftp server, after about 30 seconds the connection attempt would fail.
  • Fixed an access violation that occurred when performing an en-queued operation (rename, exec custom command, move, delete).
  • Fixed reported progress percentage during an en-queued delete operation, the progress would jump between the correct value and 100%, and the progress bar wasn't shown on the status-bar.
  • Fixed an issue where several toolbar buttons would enabled/disabled while transferring a queue under multiple different conditions.
  • Added additional support to handle servers that report the remote path as "//path/to/my/home", the tree navigation wasn't allowing "//" as a valid root.

New in version 4.1.4 Build 1664 (October 29th, 2011)

  • Fixed upload performance issue, after lots of testing and research I have determined that the problem is related to windows "Receive Window Auto-Tuning Level" setting. If you experience a slow down in this release vs previous releases please let me know via the forums.
  • Fixed custom command token %f when executing a command via the FTP search dialog. It was returning the path + filename instead of just the filename. (bug #582)
  • Fixed custom command token %c to correctly handle multiple commands separated by CR/LF.
  • Fixed the Active Edits dialog would automatically appear after restoring the main window, this issue only appeared on versions of windows prior to Vista.
  • Fixed auto reconnect on remote server move folder/file, the connection was restored but the operation was not executed if the main window did not have focus. (Bug #586)
  • Fixed the "swap panes" feature wasn't swapping the text shown on the status-bar. (Bug #587)
  • Fixed defect when performing a custom command after a loss of connection (i.e idle timeout), The connection is restored but the command wasn't always sent. (Bug #585)

  • Added new option (in Preference / Live Update) "prompt to select download location".

New in version 4.1.2 Build 1657 (October 9th, 2011)

  • Fixed FTP UTF-8/ANSI character converter. Due to the incomplete bug reports I received regarding broken UTF-8 I was not aware that FTP was broken too and sadly it didn't show up in my test cases.
  • Fixed floating point unit crash in memory manager, if the FPU was changed by a dll loaded by FlashFXP it could result in a crash.
  • Fixed a defect resulted in a lockup or failed upload when uploading to a site via a proxy server.
  • Removed the daily automatic update checks. This setting can be manually configured via the Preferences.

  • Fixed defect in single connection mode where the abort button wasn't enabled unless the remote browser pane was selected.
  • Fixed defect in the FTP server reply command handler that trimmed excess spaces from the end of each line, this caused a problem with FTP servers using unusual server replies, such as multi-line replies where the last line of the reply was 230

New in version 4.1.2 Build 1655 (October 7th, 2011)

  • Updated language translations.

New in version 4.1.2 Build 1654 (October 6th, 2011)

  • Fixed file name character case conversion during a file upload, the conversion was not always being applied to the file name in some situations. (bug #565)
  • The installer update used for the previous update included an unexpected change that resulted in all command line parameters being quoted. This this change was unexpected and broke part of the uninstall process where FlashFXP prompts to remove the program data files.
  • Fixed PASV mode when using a FTP proxy. FlashFXP was forcing the server IP when the FTP proxy was located on a local network.
  • Fixed the behavior of select-all (ctrl+A) in the file list pane, performing a select-all will now un-select the parent directory. (Bug #571)
  • Fixed local file browser slow performance issue navigating to "My computer" if it contained a disconnected or ejected disk.
  • Fixed an issue where custom commands weren't being imported when upgrading from FlashFXP v3.x.
  • Changed the list socket data timeout so that its not bound by the connection timeout value, a low connection timeout could result in a lost of connection on a large directory or slow ftp server.

  • Fixed memory leak in key / certificate manager.
  • Fixed memory leak in DNS resolver.
  • Fixed a defect that prevents logging of scheduled tasks when global logging is turned off and "store logs in unique session folders" is checked.

  • Fixed a defect in the logging setting of scheduled tasks that resulted in no logging from occurring.

New in version 4.1.1 Build 1651 (September 26th, 2011)

  • Fixed an issue where certain raw command groups contained invalid keyboard shortcuts that would be bound to standard A-Z characters without a (alt, ctrl, shift) modifier, in most cases binding to the "e" key, this prevented the "e" character from being entered.
  • Fixed an issue with plain text FTP downloads being incomplete (missing the last few bytes) under heavy disk i/o.
  • Updated the installer script engine to resolve an issue with FlashFXP failing to install on large hard drives (the previous fix was a crude patch), this is an official update from the developer.
  • Fixed 'compare folder' and 'transfer mode' tool-bar button defect, after clicking the drop-down arrow the button arrow disappeared.
  • Fixed defect in the behavior of the "Stalled transfers > Restart transfer if no data transferred" option, when the option was unchecked the feature did not disable as intended and the stall detection timeout was to 0 seconds triggering a timeout.

  • Fixed an issue when importing sites from total commander, the password field wasn't decrypted correctly.
  • Changed the way the navigation tree monitors for folder changes, in previous builds FlashFXP monitored all drives, now only the drive of the selected folder is monitored for changes.

The mask only applies to files. The second new option is "include sub-folders", by default sub-folders and their content is deleted during a delete operation, this new option limits deleting to only the file content only.
  • Folder bookmarks have a new setting on the Add/Edit Bookmark dialog "Use synchronized browsing", this setting will activate synchronized browsing when the folder bookmark is clicked. This allows for multiple synchronization locations defined at different folder locations.
  • Several changes to improve application compatibility, this should allow FlashFXP to work in many environments where previous versions would just crash on startup.
