PureFTPd Manager now runs on 10.6

Just a quick update to let you know that PureFTPd Manager 1.8 is out. It has successfully been tested with Mac OS 10.6.

It's really a very small update targetting Mac OS 10.6 specifically but you can install it on 10.4 and 10.5 too.
Also, I'm thinking about dropping support for Mac OS 10.2 and 10.3. Please mail me if you'll be affected.
Again, I'd also like to thank you all for your patience and all your kind emails.

I'd also like to thank you all for your patience and all your kind emails.
Cheers to you all and Merry Christmas !

PureFTPd on your iPod Touch / iPhone

It's a minimal server (112KB) with directory aliases, virtual users, FTP/TLS capabilities and Bonjour support.
It can transfer at 1.2MB/s (scp/sftp max speed is around 350KB/s).
A default certificate for FTP/TLS is installed to /etc/pureftpd.pem. You can use this one or replace it by your own self-signed certificate.

The package is accessible through the Installer.app, under the Network category.
People who feel clever enough to install it manually can download the archive here.

I'm also working on PureFTPd Manager to make it compatible with Mac OS 10.5. More news on that later.

I'm glad to announce that PureFTPd Manager will now run natively on the latest Apple hardware. I still didn't get my MacBook Pro but some of you out there were kind enough to test this release on their Intel based Mac and their reports were very positive.
Here is the additional changelog for this release:

User Interface
  • Previous releases of PureFTPd Manager (1.6.x) lost the ability to save window size and position along with toolbar customization. This release fixes this bug.
  • New gradient window background and unified toolbar look (for Mac OS 10.4).
User Manager / Anonymous Preference Pane
  • Virtual Folders list was not refreshed when a virtual user's home directory was changed.
Logging Preference Pane / HTML Statistics generation
  • Bug fix for monthly totals calculation.
Server Option Preference Pane
  • You can now define your recursion levels limit in response to ls and ls -R commands.
  • More French localization fix... still no French documentation, hélas!
One more thing ...
  • Today is my 25th birthday.
