"Next Generation" Revamp

The version 16 release of FTP Voyager provided a "next generation" FTP client built with 64-bit operating systems like Windows® 7 and Windows 8 in mind. We replaced our toolbars with the same type of ribbon control used in Microsoft Office, revamped the layout and icons, added the ability to connect to multiple servers at the same time, and rebuilt our scheduler service. We also simplified our licensing model: instead of paid "Standard" and "Secure" editions there is now only one "FTP Voyager" product – and it’s completely free.

 

Updated User Interface

FTP Voyager’s main interface now features a ribbon similar to the one used in Microsoft's popular Office applications.

Multiple connections to different servers are now supported through a "connection per tab" interface similar to the "page per tab" interface used in most desktop web browsers. FTP Voyager still defaults to a side-by-side "local and remote" connection display, but you have many more layout options, especially if you just want to drag-and-drop files between FTP Voyager and Windows Explorer.

In addition to layout changes, new icons and updated styling are present throughout the application. Some of the icons, such as the "connect" icon, are specific to FTP Voyager. However, many others, particularly the icons used when browsing file systems, are automatically set to match the icon set of your local operating system (e.g., on Windows 7, FTP Voyager's file browsers use the same icons as Windows 7's Explorer).

FTP Voyager's thumbnail view now integrates with Windows Explorer offering the same thumbnail views supported by your operating system. In addition, we've added a scalable "Preview" pane that can be used to view remote images without changing to a thumbnail view mode. Advanced users can take advantage of the ability to dock/undock the preview pane, log pane, and the transfer queue to customize the layout to their own preferences.

Finally, new controls have been added between your local and remote panes to make "visual sync" operations easier. When you "go up" or drill down into a subfolder in one pane, the new "lock navigation" button automatically performs the same operation on the other pane. A new "compare folders" button also highlights differences between files in the two panes with customizable colors. Together, these two controls help flag discrepancies while traversing a matched set of local and remote folders.

 

Updated Scheduler Interface

FTP Voyager Scheduler continues to run as a service, but it is now controlled and configured from a tray icon.

Like the previous interface, the new Management Console provides a list of configured tasks, each made up of a list of actions and an associated schedule. However, the new interface also provides a new "calendar" view that helps visualize when tasks are scheduled to run.

FTP Voyager Scheduler improves on the throughput and reliability of previous versions, but it also adds new features that make it a formidable automation solution in its own right.

  • Tasks starting additional tasks
  • Email notifications on success, failure & task completion
  • Tray icon balloons for custom alerts
  • Multiple transfer sessions (see below)
  • Conditional event handling
  • Optional trace logs (with log aging) for each task
  • Custom icons & colors for each task

 

 

Multiple Transfer Sessions

FTP Voyager version 16 builds on earlier versions' concepts of "power downloads" and "power uploads" by providing multiple transfer sessions on all connections by default.

In the interactive interface, there is a new "Workers" field on the "Transfer Queue" window that allows you to throttle the number of simultaneous transfers across all interactive sessions. You may also pause or cancel individual transfers.

In the Scheduler interface, which did not previously support the usage of multiple transfer sessions, there is a new "Number of Workers" drop-down on the main tab of each task that allows you to throttle the number of simultaneous transfers used when that specific task is executed.

 

Architectural Improvements

Re-architecting FTP Voyager allowed us to make other improvements, including many requested by customers just like you:

  • Native support for 64-bit Windows. The FTP Voyager installer ensures that the appropriate version is installed for your platform.
  • IPv6 is now fully supported. Specific command support includes EPRT, EPSV, and host name resolution.
  • Site Profiles can now be defined with their own unique SSL and SSH settings.
  • FIPS 140-2 validated transfers may now be enforced.

  • Corrected a bug where active transfers may not appear in the transfer queue if it is configured to not show pending transfers, only show detailed items, and no other transfers are taking place.
  • Corrected a Scheduler bug where tasks created when daylight savings time is off and scheduled to run daily or at a custom interval would repeatedly run for an hour after their scheduled execution time when daylight savings time resumed.
  • Corrected a Scheduler bug where MLST could fail when performing a transfer task in the home directory where the remote path contains wildcard characters.
  • Corrected a Scheduler bug where changes to site profiles may not be picked up by Scheduler the next time a task is executed.

FEATURES:

  • Updated End-User License Agreement

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a bug where attempting to rename or delete a folder from the right-click context menu of the tree in a remote browser caused FTP Voyager to navigate to that location, which could cause the rename or delete operation to fail.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager did not log proper information about the error encountered when it is unable to open a local file for writing during a download operation. The information logged errorneously stated that the operation completed successfully.

  • Corrected a memory leak in FTP Voyager that occurred when using the visual compare feature.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager did not properly handle proxy logins that require an account (ACCT).
  • Corrected a bug where restoring a local browser that was last viewing search results upon application startup resulted in a blank local browser until the user manually navigated somewhere using the folder view.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager did not send properly formatted remote paths when communicating with IBM MVS servers during file transfer operations.
  • Corrected a bug where multi-line responses from FTP servers were not properly parsed if the server separated the lines using just <LF> instead of the RFC required <CR><LF>.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager would crash when closing a browser that wasn't the active browser if other browsers existed in the application in a separate grouping.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager would crash if the server disconnected FTP Voyager in the middle of performing a comparison for a synchronize folders operation.
  • Corrected a bug on Windows XP and Server 2003 where FTP Voyager did not properly save the view mode for a browser when it is changed and FTP Voyager is exited without navigating to a new location in that browser.
  • Corrected a bug on Windows XP where the remote date/times displayed in the list control were not properly formatted for the user's time zone.
  • Corrected a bug on Windows 8 where the file view of a local browser would not update when the contents change after manually refreshing the view (such as pressing F5).
  • Corrected a Scheduler bug where scheduled execution times for tasks using the daily, weekly, or custom schedules were affected by the change for daylight savings time.
  • Corrected a Scheduler bug where tasks setup for deletion after execution were not deleted and appeared to continue executing instead. Aborting these tasks caused Scheduler to crash.

  • Fixed a bug where manually modifying the properties of a file on FTP servers not supporting MLSD using the "Properties" dialog resulted in the session appearing to "hang" after successfully modifying the file's properties.
  • Fixed a bug where FTP Voyager did not automatically reconnect and disable the HOST command after the FTP server disconnected the client following rejection of the HOST command.
  • Fixed a bug where SFTP file handle information was not always properly logged resulting in a blank handle name getting logged.
  • Fixed a bug where uploads to SFTP servers would fail if they did not support SSH_FXP_WRITE requests larger than 64KB.
  • Fixed a bug where uploads to FTP servers failed if they responded to a LIST command for the file being uploaded with a 450 response code instead of a 550 response code.
  • Fixed a bug where FTP Voyager would crash on Windows XP while changing the auto-layout settings after previously opened browsers had been restored and new browsers were opened.
  • Fixed a bug where toggling prompts in the Prompts dialog under "Tools | Options" caused unexpected behavior when clicking on a checkbox after previously selecting an item in the dialog by clicking on the item text.
  • Fixed a bug where disabling the "Upload Overwrite" or "Download Overwrite" confirmations caused FTP Voyager to skip transferring files that would normally trigger a prompt instead of overwriting the existing file.

  • Fixed a Scheduler bug where adding a transfer action containing a remote or local path that used a '%' macro caused a script error to occur after saving the action.
  • Fixed a Scheduler bug where creating a trigger task action for a task that contained a '%' character in the task name caused a script error to occur after saving the action.
  • Fixed a Scheduler bug where selecting a site profile that contains a '%' character in the site profile name caused a script error to occur.
  • Fixed a Scheduler bug where using the "Copy to Clipboard" button on the log dialogs in Internet Explorer caused extra blank lines to be inserted into the copied text.
  • Fixed a Scheduler bug where the log view did not display the entire line of log text when the text was wider than the original width of the log display window.
  • Fixed a Scheduler bug where synchronization operations failed on FTP servers that do not support the MLST/MLSD commands.

  • Added the ability to define the maximum size of a file to download for the purpose of displaying a thumbnail if the FTP server does not support the THMB command.
  • Added queue completion events that allow FTP Voyager to perform an action upon completion of queued transfers, including: shutdown FTP Voyager, lock, log off, hibernate, sleep, or shutdown the computer, display a message box, display a notification message, or play a sound.
  • Added the ability to set the default folder for a site profile by right-clicking on a folder in the remote tree or file view.

FTP Voyager Version 15 Release Notes

Version 15.2.0.19

FTP Voyager 15.2.0.19 was released November 29, 2011. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Upgraded development environment and Microsoft runtime libraries.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a problem with certain servers that will close the data channel, then expect the client to still perform an SSL shutdown causing delayed directory listings and file transfers.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug where symbolic links were not correctly recognized.

 

Version 15.2.0.17

FTP Voyager 15.2.0.17 was released July 20, 2011. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Added compensation for certain SSH servers that have a bug when listing directories for which the end-user has no permissions. When this occurs, on some servers, the server incorrectly sends the same error code for subsequent directory listings causing FTP Voyager to fail any further directory listings. The problem was solved by executing a "pwd" command after receiving an error when attempting to open a directory, causing the server to reset its incorrect error state.
  • Updated OpenSSL libraries from 0.9.8q to 0.9.8r.

  • Improved accuracy of "XX KB", "XX MB", and "XX GB" displays to round up to the next highest value instead of checking for any amount over the unit (as older versions of Windows did).
  • Upgraded to Inno Setup UNICODE installer to provide greater localization flexibility in the future.
  • Added support for saving FTP Voyager's Window coordinates over multiple monitors.
  • Added support for maintaining file dates and times using the MFF (modify file fact) and MFMT (modify file modify time) commands as documented in draft-somers-ftp-mfxx-04 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-somers-ftp-mfxx-04).
  • Mask proxy password in the log to hide the actual proxy password from prying eyes.
  • Changed Explicit TLS to initialize only TLSv1 methods when creating the SSL context. This is important when connecting to servers with FIPS 140-2 enabled

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected an SSL/TLS bug where FTP Voyager would not recognize a closed socket after calling SSL_read() from OpenSSL.
  • Corrected a bug in the local list when creating a new directory when one or more items were already selected, FTP Voyager would not go into in-line edit mode for the newly created directory.
  • Corrected a remote list redraw bug where the delete confirmation dialog would appear and not allow the directory list under the message box to update the display in the area where the context menu appeared leaving a blank white spot.
  • Corrected a status bar bug where the current remote and local directory name would not update when renamed from within either the remote or local tree.
  • Corrected a partially translated Italian Tip of The Day.

FEATURES:

  • Added support for servers supporting UTF-8 encoding.
  • Added support for UTF-8 on SSH.
  • Added support for the new CSID command. When a server supports this command, FTP Voyager no longer uses the CLNT command. When successful, FTP Voyager uses the return values from the server to identify the server and its capabilities.
  • On subsequent connections and reconnects, send the CLNT or CSID command to identify FTP Voyager with the server.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a bug in Synchronize Folders where an empty subdirectory, nested one or more levels deep, could be created in the incorrect directory.
  • Corrected a bug when using image thumbnails on images with very large file names or nested very deep on a server, FTP Voyager was unable to build the cache files due to path name limits in Windows
  • Corrected a bug where the update notification dialog would appear every 2 hours if an update was available. This notification now only appears every 3 days, as was originally intended.
  • Corrected a bug when the server was returning an empty response string, FTP Voyager could appear to hang.

FEATURES:

  • Added the ability to disable the use of the HOST command for Site Profiles. This option is under the "Advanced | Connection" settings for the site profile.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a problem when sending the new HOST command prior to login. Some firewalls and servers immediately disconnect the connection. During the reconnect FTP Voyager won't reissue the HOST command, instead it continues logging in normally.
  • Corrected a rare problem where installation failed on certain computers with an error message about failure to expand a shell folder constant.

 

Version 15.0.0.0

FTP Voyager 15.0.0.0 was released April 2, 2008. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Added support for the new THMB command added by Serv-U 7.0. The THMB command is used to download a smaller version of image files for the remote thumbnail view in FTP Voyager. This feature can substantially increase update time, thumbnail images are usually around 2-3KB as opposed to several MB on the server. Using the THMB command instead of RETR can make thumbnail image retrieval as fast as possible.
  • Added support for the new RMDA command added by Serv-U 7.0. The RMDA command works like RMD to remove a directory, but it also removes the contents of a directory in one command. This command substantially decreases the time to remove a directory and its contents.
  • Added support for the new HOST command added by Serv-U 7.0. The HOST command is issued immediately after connecting to the server, much like the "Host" header parameter in HTTP. This command allows the server to support multiple domains or sites on a single IP address and port.
  • Added support for the new DSIZ command added by Serv-U 7.0. The DSIZ command returns the number of bytes stored in a directory and all contained sub-directories. This command allows FTP Voyager to send a single command to the server instead of drilling into each sub-directory to determine the number of bytes on the server. This value is displayed when the size is determined in properties dialog for single or multiple remote file and folder selections.
  • Added support for the new AVBL command added by Serv-U 7.0. The AVBL command returns the number of bytes available to a user in a directory on the server. This value is displayed when the size is determined in properties dialog for single or multiple remote file and folder selections.
  • Added Spanish translation.
  • Added support for MLST options Win32.dt (Drive Type) and Win32.dl (Drive Label) for MLST and MLSD commands. Serv-U 7.0 introduced these MLST/MLSD options (return values) allowing FTP Voyager to identify a drive type and drive label for disk drives.
  • Added icons for remote disk drives such as /C:/ and /D:/. FTP Voyager can clearly identify using icons disk drives and drive types.
  • Added drive label support for remote disk drives such as /C:/ and /D:/. FTP Voyager shows the actual drive label, if available, in the tree and list views.
  • Removed some very old functionality that would assume /C:/ was the same as / for default directories or the root directory. Starting with Serv-U 7.0, this isn't necessarily the case, the root in Serv-U 7.0 "/" can now be a listing of drives on the server.
  • Removed the UNIX permissions validation check found in the file properties dialog, that would prevent CHMOD from being executed on servers that might not be UNIX style servers.
  • Added mnemonics for the following pop-up menu options: "Navigation List" (last option when right-clicking the remote or local toolbar), "Explore" when right-clicking a folder in any view, "Send FTP Command" when right-clicking in the remote list view, "Send FTP Command" when right-clicking in the log view, "Refresh" when right-clicking outside the borders of an item in the remote tree view
  • Added a check box in the SSL Security Alert dialog allowing the user to avoid being prompted for the same certificate on subsequent connections.
  • Improved the wording in the User Interface options for showing the site profile or server name on the title bar.
  • Improved the Alternate Editor file extension support to include multiple file extensions, separated by semicolons, and for adding support for wildcard comparisons of the entire file name.
  • Added an overwrite warning when attempting to rename a file in the remote list to an existing name in the same directory.
  • Added a registry entry for system administrators to disable the ability to store passwords. To disable saving of site profile passwords, create a DWORD value named "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Rhino Software\FTP Voyager\Allow Password Storage" and set the value to 0. 1 enables password saving support. This option is very useful for organizations where regulations or policy don't allow passwords to be saved on computers.
  • Added "View Log File" to the log pane right mouse click menu. This option is available only when a log file is specified.
  • When using "Manual Put" to upload a file, FTP Voyager no longer renames that file it uploads directly to the specified file.
  • Removed the file size check for the thumbnail image cache. Now only file dates and times are checked against the thumbnail cache.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a bug where Power Download may not work in some situations.
  • Corrected a listing bug where "NcFTPd Server" UNIX FTP servers do NOT correctly follow the MLST/MLSD specification for directory listings. Prior to listing a file or folder name the server does not include the last semicolon ";" before the file name. For these servers file names containing a semicolon may not properly be shown in FTP Voyager listings.
  • Corrected a problem with some servers that do not correctly follow the MLST/MLSD specification in response to the OPTS MLST command. If FTP Voyager can identify required MLST/MLSD options by using the FEAT command, and the server incorrectly returns a response to OPTS MLST, FTP Voyager will still use MLST/MLSD.
  • Corrected a bug where the "Skip File" option while downloading would cause FTP Voyager to sometimes crash.
  • Corrected a validation problem when creating an SSL certificate. FTP Voyager now verifies that the length of the country code is 2 characters long, which is required for an SSL certificate.
  • Corrected a very rare memory leak when attempting to select an SSL certificate that fails to open. Under normal operations this would not occur.
  • Corrected a minor graphical imperfection in the right mouse click "Commands" sub-menu.
  • Corrected a bug when editing a Site Profile while connected to a server where FTP Voyager's Folder Short Cuts are being used. When a Folder Short Cut was changed from with in the Site Profile Manager while connected, FTP Voyager could crash.
  • Corrected an internal problem where adjusting certain registry entries could cause FTP Voyager to store a site profile excessively large. This problem is not something that would happen to most users, other than those who are changing registry entries for configurable options, which isn't recommended.
  • Corrected a problem where the "Alternate Editors" and "Auto Rename" dialogs would not bring up the correct context sensitive help.
  • Corrected a bug in the About dialog when the cursor was in one of the multi-line edit controls or in the rich text edit control, pressing ESC would cause the sub dialog (the category) disappear.
  • Corrected a bug usually found in FTP Voyager Scheduler but also appears in FTP Voyager when using "Manual Get". The problem occurred when downloading files from a VMS server using FTP Voyager Scheduler, FTP Voyager Scheduler would incorrectly create the source directory path. Now it simply uses the current directory and uses the relative file name.
  • Corrected a bug where the "Upload newer files only" check box under "View | Options | User Interface | Confirmation" would not work as expected and would eliminate prompting all together.
  • Corrected a bug where the Site Profile Manager would not come up when the remote and local trees were disabled and running with the log pane on the bottom instead of the top.
  • Corrected a problem where the window could come up "off-screen" when restarting. This is a very rare condition and could only happen when Windows was shut down while FTP Voyager was minimized.
  • Corrected a bug in wildcard comparison; comparisons such as "a.011" and "a.0111" to "a.???" would previously pass when they shouldn't have. This affected both FTP Voyager and FTP Voyager Scheduler.

 

FTP Voyager Version 14 Release Notes

FTP Voyager Version 13 Release Notes

FTP Voyager Version 12 Release Notes

Version 12.3.0.1

FTP Voyager 12.3.0.1 was released January 9, 2006. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Added additional check using the SIZE command when resuming uploads, to ensure the file size is not exceeded.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected remote thumbnails, where the remote path contained an invalid path character such as ":" or "*" for Windows file names. When this occurred, thumbnail images would not appear in the remote pane.
  • Corrected a bug when using certain HTTP proxy servers, FTP Voyager would get out of sync with commands and responses.
  • Corrected a problem, introduced in 12.3.0.0, where FTP Voyager negotiates an SSL termination when issuing the CCC command. Previously it didn't do this. Now, the negotiation is done only when connected to a Serv-U server.
  • Corrected a long standing Synchronize Folders problem where FTP Voyager Scheduler would fail to operate when the remote folder did not appear in the parent folder's listing. This problem showed itself primarily when the remote folder was on a different drive than the user's home folder.
  • Corrected a bug where deleting folders and files inside a Folder ShortCut would fail.
  • Corrected a VMS server problem where file names containing the $ character could cause uploads to fail.
  • Corrected a VMS problem where the server could require the VMS version number in order to delete a particular file. When this happens, FTP Voyager tries deleting the file with the version number as part of the file name.
  • Corrected a problem on some VMS servers where the permissions value wasn't being trimmed of leading characters.
  • Corrected a potential problem where FTP Voyager might not allow the user to shut down FTP Voyager, thinking transfers were still running.
  • Corrected a bug where switching to Thumbnails view in the remote pane could cause FTP Voyager to crash, depending on whether or not a default directory was set for the site profile.
  • Corrected a problem where certain ProFTPD servers return 450 instead of 550 for the LIST command when a file doesn't exist. This caused FTP Voyager to retry a LIST command more times than needed.
  • Corrected a bug where clear data channel may not have been working under certain circumstances
  • Corrected a problem where if the "PROT P" command fails, FTP Voyager would still attempt to use an encrypted data channel.
  • Corrected a bug where, on certain servers, an incomplete server response could have been considered complete by FTP Voyager.

 

Version 12.3.0.0

FTP Voyager 12.3.0.0 was released November 1, 2005. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Updated the FtpTree ActiveX interface and created the FTP Voyager Software Development Kit.
  • Updated OpenSSL libraries from 0.9.8 to 0.9.8a.
  • Substantially improved transfer rates on very fast networks, and when transferring many files at the same time.
  • Substantially reduced CPU usage for very fast file transfers.
  • Changed FTP Voyager exit so that exiting while an operation is active stops the operation, then exits.
  • Added support for the "OmniStack FTP Server" which lists directories like UNIX, but pads files names with a lot of spaces on the right.
  • Changed the installer to check the version numbers for shell extensions, so a computer restart isn't required when a shell extension file is in use.
  • Substantially improved the log and transfer pane update speeds.
  • Added the ability to define the number of threads to use for Synchronize Folders when using the FTP Voyager Scheduler.
  • Substantially improved FTP Voyager Scheduler's responsiveness to canceling transfers and tasks.
  • Significantly improved FTP Voyager and FTP Voyager Scheduler's performance, especially when using SSL.
  • Updated the default transfer animations for pop-up transfer dialogs to use the Windows XP animations if FTP Voyager is running on Windows XP or better.
  • Disabled the sending of the TYPE command when using MSLT / MLSD, it is not required and it has no effect on the listing.
  • Improved description file parsing to strip file paths and a terminating colon.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a minor error when detecting whether or not a connection attempt was canceled.
  • Corrected an error when using "manual get" options to download files, and the source file doesn't exist and the local file exists, FTP Voyager would prompt for overwriting the file, when it should show an error as soon as it could.
  • Corrected an error where FTP Voyager add-ons could receive the wrong session number when certain FTP errors occur.
  • Corrected a potential memory leak when using compression during a upload, when a transfer was canceled or an error occurred.
  • Corrected a bug where canceling a connection saver file transfer could make no additional PORT or PASV commands to be sent until another command was sent.
  • Decreased the winsock send buffer back to the Windows default, the larger send buffer set in 12.2.0.0 would cause uploads on slow connections appear to be "hung".
  • Corrected a bug introduced in 12.2.0.0 where uploading or downloading files where the server would return a failure code, the error wasn't being reported by a dialog box. This bug was introduced when correcting the reconnect problem upon error described below.
  • Corrected a compression bug where, in certain conditions, where FTP Voyager would shutdown the data socket when uploading a file.
  • Corrected a problem where the main thread's priority was elevated and not restored to the normal priority.
  • Corrected a bug where the local tree could show the wrong directory name where the path and the display names were different. For example, "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents" would be displayed as "Documents" only.
  • Corrected a problem where a local folder reports it contains no files or folders, but a scan of the fold reveals it does contain entries. The problem would not allow listings of one of these local folders in the local panes. This problem manifested itself when browsing to an iPod in the local panes.
  • Corrected a problem with the transfer pane where items could appear with no text or icons.
  • Corrected a problem where FTP Voyager Scheduler would appear "locked" while performing several transfers and tasks at the same time.
  • Corrected a problem where running multiple Synchronize Folders operations, with many files, and at the same time, could cause FTP Voyager Scheduler to crash.
  • Corrected a problem where the "Append Between Sessions" logging option was not working correctly, it would always append to the log file.
  • Corrected a problem where FTP Voyager Scheduler Tasks might not cancel (by pressing the cancel button) when using Synchronize Folders.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager could fail on downloads, when attempting to create a directory, and another download (thread) is attempting to create the same directory or sub directory.
  • Corrected a toolbar display bug in FTP Voyager Scheduler where the toolbar would be drawn incorrectly after starting a task.
  • Corrected a bug where starting multiple FTP Voyager Scheduler tasks that use compression at the same time could cause a GPF.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager would not recognize a file transfer's abrupt termination when the data socket was closed by the server.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager was not checking for the SSL shutdown or issuing the SSL shutdown when using the CCC (Clear Command Channel) command.

 

Version 12.2.0.0

FTP Voyager 12.2.0.0 was released August 2, 2005. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Updated OpenSSL libraries from 0.9.7g to 0.9.8.
  • Updated to zLib 1.2.3 from 1.2.2
  • Improved transfer pane item update, some items were being updated even when it wasn't required.
  • Improved Synchronize Folders so the dialog appears prior to searching sub directories, so the "Cancel" button is available if needed.
  • Increased the winsock send and receive buffer sizes from 8192 bytes (the default) to a larger size of 100 KB, making transfers more efficient on higher bandwidth connections.
  • Changed the MLST return code parsing mechanism to be more forgiving of servers that don't follow the MLST / MLSD specification to the letter.
  • Improved cancel response when using power upload.
  • Display better error messages in the log when queuing errors for Synchronize Folders (both FTP Voyager and FTP Voyager Scheduler).
  • Change the deletion confirmation prompt when deleting a shortcut to a folder, so it's clear the shortcut is being deleted, not the folder.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a bug where using "Move Down" to download, then delete remote files, would cause FTP Voyager to crash (GPF).
  • Corrected a problem were the FTP Voyager Scheduler user interface would appear to be locked up during very fast transfers, on a fast connection, and many, many files.
  • Corrected a receive buffer problem where connecting to a server on a very fast LAN or connecting to a local host server, FTP Voyager would use an excessive amount of RAM.
  • Corrected a potential GPF bug when canceling scheduler tasks.
  • Corrected a bug when running the FTP Voyager Scheduler Synchronize Folders, where pressing cancel would not stop remote folder listing.
  • Corrected a minor memory leak when using filters to exclude items from the remote list.
  • Corrected the "Move Up" icon to match the menu, the arrow color was wrong.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager Scheduler problem where using wild carded file names such as "*.*" could cause invalid RETR commands to be sent to the server.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager Scheduler / Connection Saver bug where when attempting to download a non-existent file, FTP Voyager Scheduler would crash (GPF).
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager / FTP Voyager Scheduler bug where attempting to download a non-existent file would cause a reconnect when the server returns the file doesn't exist.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager Scheduler bug where attempting to start two FTP Voyager Schedulers at once could cause a GPF in one of the FTP Voyager Scheduler instances.
  • Corrected a log display error, when canceling, FTP Voyager could show an "unknown socket error".
  • Corrected a log display error, when canceling certain commands, an error would still appear in the log.
  • Corrected a rare memory leak when file uploads fail.
  • Corrected a memory leak when FTP Voyager / FTP Voyager Scheduler is unable to change the working directory.
  • Corrected a memory leak when FTP Voyager / FTP Voyager Scheduler was unable to upload a file.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager was incorrectly showing the contents of the specified "Default Directory", if the default directory didn't exist.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager would use a System Modal message box when not needed.
  • Corrected an error message to include "MLSD" when an MLSD command is issued instead of LIST. Previously the Error message read: "Error sending command "LIST"..."
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager and FTP Voyager Scheduler would not retry sending the LIST or MLSD command when a timeout occurs.
  • Corrected a bug where if a file is locked, being used by another program, FTP Voyager first tried to create the remote file, before attempting to open the local file, causing a 0 byte file to appear on the server. Now FTP Voyager checks if it can open the local file before trying to create the remote file.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager Scheduler display bug where the "Repeat Run Time" column wouldn't update each time the repeat run time changed.
  • Corrected a bug where an add-on may not be notified of a session completion, if the command socket was closed prior to the QUIT command, or when using SSH.
  • Corrected a bug where the local list pane's automatic update was not working correctly when updating shortcuts. When new shortcuts were created in Windows, FTP Voyager would show multiple copies of all shortcuts in the current directory.
  • Corrected a bug where some shortcuts in the local list would not appear with the shortcut "swoosh" on the icon.
  • Corrected a bug where local properties on a shortcut showed the file or folder being pointed to by the shortcut, instead of the shortcut itself, like Windows does.
  • Corrected a bug when automatically updating the local tree for a shortcut to a folder, the new folder would not appear in the local tree.
  • Corrected a bug when automatically updating the local tree for a deletion of a shortcut to a folder, the deleted shortcut folder would not disappear from the local tree.
  • Corrected a bug when deleting a shortcut in the local list, would cause an error message to appear even when the shortcut was deleted correctly.

 

Version 12.1.0.0

FTP Voyager 12.1.0.0 was released June 30, 2005. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Added support for the MLSD command. MLSD replaces the LIST command to give consistent, more accurate, directory listing results independent of the server type.
  • Added support for the MLST command. MLST is used when checking for information about a single file or directory. MLST provides much better and consistent information about files and directories than LIST. MLST also returns its single line results on the command channel, instead of opening a data channel like LIST, NLST, and MLSD.
  • Added the ability to enable or disable the use of MLST / MLSD for site profiles, under the "Advanced | Connection" dialog.
  • Improved description file parsing to give precedence to tabs over spaces when searching for file names in the file.
  • Changed the remote list right mouse click pop-up menu option for "Properties" to read "Properties / CHMOD" to make the CHMOD capabilities more apparent.
  • Improved message boxes displayed by FtpTree from within background threads. A modal message box is used, preventing further U/I activity until the message box is dismissed. As a result, the icon on the title bar, used by system modal message boxes, is no longer shown. This functionality is consistent with Windows and most Windows programs.

BUG FIXES:

  • Adjusted the Icy menu style text position up one pixel to match the other styles
  • Corrected a bug where selecting multiple items in the list view and pressing F2 (rename) was allowed.
  • Corrected a bug where in-line renaming, by clicking twice, would not work in the remote tree, local tree, or local list.
  • Corrected a bug where selecting an item in the local list, then scrolling down so the selection is out of view, then pressing shift would cause the selected item to become visible again, automatically scrolling up to the item.
  • Corrected a bug with OTP (S/Key password encryption) where if the server returned the OTP hash in any line other than the last line of the USER response, FTP Voyager would not recognize the OTP hash.
  • Corrected a bug when deleting a Folder Short Cut FTP Voyager could crash.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager Scheduler or FTP Voyager would not correctly call the FTP Voyager Rename Tweak prior to overwriting a file. FTP Voyager Scheduler always overwrites files. FTP Voyager can optionally overwrite files.
  • Corrected some information in certain Tip of the Day messages. The message contained incorrect references to where certain menu options exist.
  • Corrected a problem where removing the "Run as a System Service" check mark in FTP Voyager Scheduler, would cause FTP Voyager Scheduler to appear "locked".
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager and FTP Voyager Scheduler were storing Port Range settings in different (and incorrect) registry locations. The result was that FTP Voyager Scheduler didn't use the Port Range settings defined in FTP Voyager.
  • Corrected a problem where FTP Voyager Scheduler was appending an unnecessary "/" onto file names when downloading from the remote root directory and the remote directory was specified as "/" in a download action.
  • Corrected a very small FTP Voyager Scheduler memory leak, when transferring multiple files.
  • Corrected a bug with Folder Locking when connected to a case sensitive server. When changing the local folder, FTP Voyager converted the paths to all lower case. The lower case path conversion only occurs on known letter case insensitive servers. This bug only applied to changing the local folder, remote folder changing was working correctly.

 

Version 12.0.0.5

FTP Voyager 12.0.0.5 was released May 23, 2005. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Added a new Tip of the Day topic for easily switching between Detail and Thumbnails views.
  • Removed the need for FVSchedulerNT.exe when running the FTP Voyager Scheduler as an NT service. FTP Voyager Scheduler itself now runs as a native NT (Windows) service.
  • When FTP Voyager downloads a file, and the file is a UNIX link, and file size less than 1KB, FTP Voyager now uses the SIZE commend to attempt to get the actual file size for accurate transfer statistics.
  • When FTP Voyager performs thorough link resolution and encounters a file with a size less than 1KB, FTP Voyager will use the SIZE command to get the actual file size.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected the toolbar background color when using one of the "Windows Default" menu styles under Windows 9x/Me. NT based operating systems, such as NT, 2000, and XP do not appear to be affected.
  • Corrected the Readme.txt file, removing support for Windows 95.
  • Corrected several grammatical errors in the tip of the day text.
  • Changed the Tip of the Day to use text instead of arrows for Next and Previous when the arrows font doesn't exist or can't be loaded.
  • Corrected a problem when logging off and FTP Voyager Scheduler is running as a service, Windows would not allow the logoff. This problem was due to a Microsoft bug in the MFC DLL.
  • Corrected a bug where, after starting with the local pane disabled, enabling the local pane would not show any items until FTP Voyager was restarted.

 

Version 12.0.0.4

FTP Voyager 12.0.0.4 was released May 9, 2005. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

FEATURES:

  • Improved menu and toolbar displays for various Windows themes.

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager would display file sizes, greater than 2GB incorrectly.
  • Corrected a GPF where, when downloading to an off-line folder in Windows, FTP Voyager could crash. This was due to a bug in Microsoft's MFC DLL.
  • Internal modifications for menus and toolbars for safer use of device context objects.

 

Version 12.0.0.3

FTP Voyager 12.0.0.3 was released May 3, 2005. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected an error message that referenced a DLL not used by FTP Voyager.
  • Corrected installer problem where MSVCP71.DLL was not being included with the installer. This problem would cause the SSH DLL to NOT load.
  • Corrected a problem where FTP Voyager could not set file or folder attributes when using SSH.
  • Corrected a problem where TiVo FTP servers are returning an incorrect response to the NLST command. FTP Voyager issues the LIST command for a file, the server returns "total 0", then FTP Voyager attempts to use NLST. When the NLST command is issued, the TiVo server incorrectly returns the file name.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager was not sending the file name when issuing a CHMOD command to a server.
  • Corrected a bug when deleting a file, and the delete fails, attempting to deleted it again could cause a GPF.

 

Version 12.0.0.2

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a problem where auto refresh for local drives would cause access to a floppy disk.
  • Corrected a bug where sending a local folder or file to the Recycle bin could cause FTP Voyager to hang.
  • Corrected a problem when downloading files with "dynamic" icons, such as .EXE files, FTP Voyager would use the generic icon instead of the correct icon, under certain circumstances.

FEATURES:

  • Added thumbnail view mode for both the local and remote lists. Thumbnail mode is a great way to see image files both on the server and on your computer. This feature is ideal for webmasters and anyone sharing image files with others. Remote thumbnails are efficiently cached on your hard drive for the quickest display possible.
  • Added support for FTP Voyager Add-Ons. FTP Voyager Add-Ons allow software developers to enhance the FTP Voyager functionality by writing software used by FTP Voyager. FTP Voyager Add-Ons can be configured for all FTP Site Profiles or for individual Site Profiles. For more information visit http://www.ftpvoyager.com/addons.asp
  • Developed the first FTP Voyager Add-On, FTP Voyager Notify Add-On. This FTP Voyager Add-On can send an email message when certain events occur. This Add-On can be configured to send only when errors occur or for all events. For more information, visit http://www.ftpvoyager.com/addons.asp
  • Developed FTP Voyager Transfer Tweak Add-On. FTP Voyager Transfer Tweak can be used to execute files before a file is uploaded or after a file is downloaded. This Add-On can be configured to run only on files meeting specified criteria. For more information, visit http://www.ftpvoyager.com/addons.asp
  • Developed FTP Voyager Rename Add-On. FTP Voyager Rename can automatically rename files at the time of transfer if a file already exists with the same name. The pattern used to rename the file is user configurable with a variety of options. For more information, visit http://www.ftpvoyager.com/addons.asp
  • Added two new FTP Voyager command line options to install and uninstall FTP Voyager Add-Ons. The command line is "-installaddon C:\Add-On\File\Path" and "-uninstalladdon C:\Add-On\File\Path".
  • Added the ability to choose between several different menu and toolbar styles. This option is found under "View | Options | User Interface | Toolbars and Menus". Included in these styles are more modern looking Windows XP, Office 2003, and others.
  • Added Toolbars and Menus options to simple mode options. Previously these options were hidden in simple mode.
  • Added automatic monitoring of the current local directory, making sure file and folders automatically appear and update when created or changed by other programs.
  • Changed the "About" dialog to include more information about FTP Voyager, and to include registration ID information and the EULA (End User's License Agreement).
  • Added "Tip of the Day" to help customers understand more of the powerful features found in FTP Voyager. Tip of the Day comes up when FTP Voyager starts (and can be disabled) and is found under the Help menu.
  • Added support for Serv-U's password expiration feature. If a server returns 233 as a response to a PASS command, FTP Voyager asks the user to change the account password before continuing. This is especially important for customers wanting to meet HIPAA requirements.
  • Changed blue sort arrow icons for list headers to the more standard Windows style triangular arrow.
  • Changed the sort arrows to point up for ascending, down for descending, like Windows Explorer.
  • Changed date/time sort order to match Windows Explorer.
  • Changed file name sorting to more closely match the Windows Explorer.
  • Removed the ability to use the old button style menus.
  • Removed the ability to disable graphical icons in menus.
  • Added the ability to disable "Scheduler" and "Queue" from the menu bar. This was added for those customers who never use the FTP Voyager Scheduler and really don't need these options.
  • Added the ability to encrypt the command channel only using "PROT C" to use clear-text for the data channel.
  • Improved download error handling when the local target file can't be created, or its parent directory cannot be created. This correction is especially important in FTP Voyager Scheduler when the incorrect or a non-existent directory is specified by an action.
  • Added the use of the SIZE command, if supported by the server, when using Manual Get on folders that don't allow listings. This allows FTP Voyager to know the size of files even when it can't determine file sizes with the LIST command.
  • Changed "Tools | Windows Explorer" to open the Windows Explorer in the same directory as the local panes' current directory.
  • Upgraded development environment from Microsoft Developer Studio 6.0 to Microsoft Developer Studio 2003.
  • Upgraded Microsoft DLLs to MFC71.DLL and MSVCR71.DLL.
  • Upgraded InnoSetup installer to version 5.0 to reduce download size by about 22KB.
  • Due to Microsoft DLL incompatibilities, discontinued support for Windows 95.
  • Changed "Tools | Transfer Mode" order so that it's consistent with the toolbar drop down order "Binary | ASCII | Auto ASCII".
  • Added "Disconnect" to the default toolbar.
  • Removed "Clear Log" and "Filters" from the default toolbar.
  • Added 256 color 16x16 "lock" icon, used in the status bar when connecting to a secure site.
  • Added XCRC to the default custom commands list, removed "Change Attribute" because it confused many customers. The best way to change file attributes is using the Properties dialog for selected files.
  • When an FTP Voyager Secure license is being used and running in Simple Mode, FTP Voyager now shows the secure options.
  • Changed "View | Arrange Icons" to "View | Arrange Columns".
  • Added "View | Arrange Columns | Reverse Sort" to clarify whether or not the sorted column is being sorted in reverse order. This is especially important for visually impaired customers.
  • Added certain date and time variables to the paths in FTP Voyager Scheduler actions. When these variables are used, FTP Voyager Scheduler can create and use folders and files based on the current date and time. For example C:\TEMP\%m-%d-%Y would create a directory of C:\TEMP\3-15-2005 where %m-%d-%Y is the current date. For all of the available parameters select "Help" in the Action dialog.
  • Removed the Connection Saver option in FTP Voyager Scheduler, since all file transfers are performed using Connection Saver.
  • Show program specific icon for .SCR (screen saver), .MSC (Microsoft Common Console Document), .CUR (cursor), and .ANI (animated cursor) local files.
  • Substantially improved startup time for directories containing files with many .EXE, .ICO, or other files using dynamic icons for display.
  • Substantially improved icon searching for remote panes.
  • Changed local file and folder properties to use Window's properties dialog.
  • Changed the uninstaller to check the FTP Voyager data directory, and ask the user if it, and its contents, should be removed.
  • If MM/DD/YY date checks don't work, DD/MM/YY is checked

BUG FIXES:

  • Corrected a bug where the status dialog, or transfer pane would show the incorrect number of files when downloading both files and folders. This was changed so that only files are included in the total.
  • Corrected a bug where the navigation (Back and Forward) drop down menus would be entirely grayed out. These buttons are not available by default.
  • Corrected MRU list mouse over status bar text to read "Connect to this site." instead of "Open this document".
  • Corrected a problem in the FTP Voyager Scheduler Help menu where the Knowledge Base and the On-line Customer Service center links were incorrect.
  • Corrected a potential GPF error in FTP Voyager Scheduler.
  • Corrected a problem where FTP Voyager could show the wrong date and time for disk drives and other local resources when showing the Properties dialog.
  • Corrected a bug where a file or folder name could contain wild card characters, and the file would not be detected. For example "[b".
  • Corrected a bug where icons were not being released in the local panes. This problem would appear when refresh was selected many times on the same directory.
  • Corrected a problem where switching "Auto Arrange" on and off would lead to incorrect file and folder lists.
  • Corrected a problem where searching the registry would not find certain file types such as .PDF for remote icons.
  • Corrected a problem where SSL certificates created by FTP Voyager were "Version 4" when "Version 3" was the desired format.
  • Corrected a problem where renaming a folder in the local tree could cause items shown in the local list to be invalid and unusable.
  • Corrected a bug where selecting "Skip File" when downloading would cause the "skipped" file to retry the download.
  • Corrected a potential problem when selecting "Skip File" for both download and upload during a move, FTP Voyager would delete the source file.
  • Corrected a potential problem where FTP Voyager would attempt to maintain the date and time of a "skipped" file after an upload or download. FTP Voyager now skips trying to set the file date and time.
  • Corrected a bug where renaming from within the local tree could fail, yet the information became updated in the tree.
  • Corrected a problem where if an operation was canceled cached remote folders would not show any files or folders in the list.
  • Corrected a bug when refreshing the local panes when "Desktop" was the selected folder, FTP Voyager would put another tree of information in the toolbar drop down combo box.
  • Corrected a bug where the folder locking mechanism, when navigating local folders, was case sensitive and could cause folder locking to fail.
  • Corrected a problem where "Copy" was enabled (not disabled) when there were no items in the sysop chat list.
  • Changed FTP Voyager Scheduler to update the tray icon more frequently, and changed the shutdown / logoff procedures to make sure it remains running after log out.
  • Corrected a problem where local next and back might not work when working with UNC directories.
  • Corrected a bug when using SSL, and getting a directory listing, if the listing failed FTP Voyager would appear "hung" until manually stopped.
  • Corrected a problem where, if a server is returning DD/MM/YY instead of MM/DD/YY certain files and folders could be ignored. Now FTP Voyager will assume either MM/DD/YY or DD/MM/YY for dates
