FTP Applet


A new version of the FTP applet was released on the 27th. What's new in this version? not much except for a fixing up a couple of compatibility issues.

FTP servers running on window the copy cat system can sometimes be configured to return a unix style directory listing. (why?). In most cases the Applet handled this situation well, however there were still a few cases where it wasn't handled properly (would you blame the applet?). The motivation for this new release was primirily to solve this issue.

Secondly we noticed that the applet did not work as expected on titan ftp servers so we fixed it too at the same time. Titan is in fact both an SFTP and FTP server (which is unusual). And guess what Rad SFTP does not work too well with it's SFTP servers. yikes.
