I have a few files called .conf, which stands for configuration. I had no trouble sending these in earlier fetch 3.x but the new 4.x sent is as one long line. This was solved by checking the text option. The curious part was that downloading the file back to me resulted in it looking fine to me even though it was filed as one long line on the server (Unix).
I don't mind this too much but it was during this episode that I lost my ability to upload special caracters like á or ñ.

The "sending as one long line" means that the end-of-line characters were not converted to the server's standard. Uploading in Text format is (as you discovered) the right way to make sure end-of-line characters are converted. The file would look fine on your Mac because the line endings were correct for a Mac text file.
As for the special characters I would try checking "Translate ISO Characters" in the Misc. section of Preferences. Does that help?
