WatchFTP beta 2.2
Jul 9th, 2009, 10:54am
 
Hello,

A beta version for WF 2.2 is available here:
link removed, see next post for the current download

New in this beta release is that you can enter all kind of "timing" related settings for each task. Among other things, this gives you easier access to all the "secret settings" described on our blog ( http://watchdirftp.blogspot.com/2008/10/undocumented-watchftp-stops-after-10.htm... ).

This beta does not have the new features translated to German and Spanish yet - the new items will show in English.

To install (and keep your current settings and tasks):
* Do NOT uninstall your current WF version
* Install the beta and use all proposed settings of the installer (same directories)

We are still looking at this:
http://www.watchftp.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1246855978
so far, it seems to work OK here. Is anyone else experiencing strange timestamps on downloaded files?

Hello,
We have a new beta for WatchFTP: 2.2 beta 2.

New in this beta:
  • Previously, files bigger than 4GB would not download properly.
  • French language support (helpfile is not translated yet).
    We are very interested to here about the quality of this translation.
    Any remarks you have, please send an email to eric@watchftp.com
  • Separate installers for each supported language.
    Previously, the user interface language was detected by the operating
    system. There was no way to use the English interface on a German
    language operating system. This new version will bypass the automatic
    detection and always use the language depending on the download you
    have installed.

(replaced by a new beta, see below)

Install the new beta "on top" of your current install - no need to uninstall your previous version.

We have a new WatchFTP beta with the following new features:

* You can now let WatchFTP rename the FTP file after it has been downloaded. For example, let WatchFTP add a ".downloaded" suffix to the filename. At the same time you can tell WatchFTP never to download files with these suffixes.
* 4 new Proxy methods, including SOCKS4 and SOCKS5.

To install this new beta without losing your previous tasks and settings, install it "on top" of your current install - do not uninstall your old version first.

Note: The French language download still has English helpfiles and may show a few English texts in its user interface.

We are currently debugging some issues with this beta - Proxy methods SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 do not work (yet) correctly with the downloads above (see http://www.watchftp.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1254592968 ).

Thank you, "Spirou" for helping us testing this.

We have a new WatchFTP beta.

The SOCKS4/SOCKS5 issue mentioned previously is now fixed.
New in this beta: When WatchFTP has trouble downloading certain files (for example because they have an illegal filename), those files are automatically added to a "blacklist" and will not be downloaded again during this "run". When the task is restarted, they will be retried again.

The final release will probably automatically expire those blacklist entries every few hours.


To install this new beta without losing your previous tasks and settings, install it "on top" of your current install - do not uninstall your old version first.

Hi,

We have a new WatchFTP beta with the following fixes:

The WF_FILE_E variable (Email and Batch file action) contained garbage when the file has no extension.
A memory corruption is fixed, depending on your exact settings this may have caused your WF tasks to crash.
The French version has an improved translation (Thanks Jacob), the helpfiles in the French release are still English.

Install the new beta "on top" of your current install - no need to uninstall your previous version.

<b>links removed, this is now the official 2.2.6 release</b>
