Free Open FTP Face is a graphical FTP client, written in Python.
Version: 0.99.5Free Open FTP Face is a graphical FTP client, written in Python.
Operating System: Linux
Free Open FTP Face is a lightweight graphical (GTK+) FTP client. It is multiplatform, easy to use, has a built in text viewer, image viewer (very fast), and one-click gzip (de)/compression. Although it is a functional GUI, you can also input OS and FTP commands.
Its emphasis is on simplicity, convenience, and ease of use. Many free FTP clients for Windows lack the clean, uncluttered interface that gFTP on Linux has, for example.
The idea behind the built-in text and image viewers, is that regardless of the operating system, you can instantly view text and image files since there's no overhead from loading an external program.
· GTK+ version 2.6.x
What's New in This Release:
· This was originally meant for a quick follow up on 0.99.4, to do some things left out by accident, but it turns out the biggest thing on the TODO list just got taken care of. This new relaese finally implements downloading of entire directories, with recursion. The download recursion has been tested on a directory depth of 6, including multiple branches, and over 100 files, both text and binary. No problems so far, except for when the server drops the connection.
· Another cool thing that got included in this release is better unarchiving support. Previously you could only decompress single-file .gz and .bz2 files, but now there is support for tar, tar.(gz/bz2), and zip archives.
