Title: WatchFTP 2.4.0 Beta
Post by Gert on Feb 5th, 2011, 12:03pm

We have a first beta for the next WatchFTP release. This beta has the following changes:

* The Email action can now also send to CC and BCC email addresses
* The Email action can send html formatted emails
* The Email action supports a so-called Repeat block

The above new functionality is not documented in the helpfile yet, so please read their description below.

Downloads - Just install "on top" of your current release, no need to uninstall:
See the download links in the reply below

Next Beta
In a few weeks we will have one more beta that will implement optional "delayed deletes". This allows you to tell WatchFTP to remove files from the FTP server after 99 minutes or hours.

Using a Repeat block in Email
If you have not selected "One email per download", WatchFTP sends just one email for all downloaded files. Inside the message body of this email you can now write a "repeat block" that will
be repeated for each file. Inside those repeat blocks you can also use Environment Variables (see ) that will be replaced by correct
values for the "current" file.
If you use $UFILE$ or $WFILE$ outside the repeat block, they are replaced by the list of files (just like previous WatchFTP releases did).


Below are the files that are just downloaded:
The FTP file $UFILE$ has just been downloaded to $WFILE$ (%WF_FILE_SIZE_KB% kilobytes).


Sending HTML formatted Email
If you want to send nicely formatted emails, you can let WatchFTP send them in HTML format. To make sure WatchFTP recognizes it should enable html, make sure your message body starts with <html>.

New in this (probably last) beta:

* A new option to "delay the delete". After downloading a file from the FTP server, let WatchFTP remove the FTP file after X hours.
* The "history window" (right-click a task, select "History") now behaves better when "Automatically Refresh" is selected - it will not scroll to top when refreshing.
* If you have configured the "Delay Delete", right-click the message in "History" (The file /a/b/c.txt is scheduled to be deleted on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 14:03:00) shows a little popup menu where you can disable this delete of the FTP file.
* When you right-click a message about a downloaded file in "History" you can start Windows Explorer inside the directory of that file.

Download and install this beta "on top" of your current install so it will keep its settings and tasks.

The beta is now released
