    Fetch 4.0.2b1, a public beta release, is now available for testing. It can be downloaded from:

    http://getfetch4.com/Fetch_4.0.2b1.sit

    This release is free, and will expire May 1, 2002. The official 4.0.2 release should be available later this month.

    Changes in this release (from 4.0.1):

    * Dragging to file lists works on Mac OS X 10.1.3.
    * Fixed bugs that required setting passive mode or resulted in -3155 errors on Mac OS X.
    * Fixed bugs that kept firewall settings from being remembered on Mac OS X.
    * Fixed bugs that kept the Edit with BBEdit and Edit with GraphicConverter features from working on Mac OS X.
    * Added support for longer-than-31-character file names on Mac OS X.
    * Improved the mirror folder feature for servers that do not support the MDTM command.
    * Reduced CPU usage on Mac OS X.
    * Improved feedback for drag-and-drop operations.
    * Shared menu support on Mac OS X.
    * Added the ability to duplicate remote files.
    * Fixed dozens of other bugs

    Please try this new release if you have any problems with 4.0.1, and let me know how it goes.

    This is great. I'm a Userland Frontier user and I discovered that Fetch 4.0.1 didn't behave properly when using the old Anarchie suite scripts. It would do things like put the file if the file wasn't already there, but if it was it wouldn't overrite it with the new, modified file. I tried the beta and the old scripts work fine.

    Now I just use the old routines for my sites which use cleartext passwords, and I have a modified routine that I use with MIT which uses the Kerberos Client and GSS security.

    I can't get the olds cripts to work using secure methods since even if a secure window is open, the Anarchie suite causes a cleartext window to open for the transfer.

    What's the ETA on secure shell fetch so I can stop using a tunnel to update our website at work?

    Keep up the good work!

    I'm glad that 4.0.2b1 is working for you. SFTP support is planned for this fall, but that isn't a firm date.

    Thanks,

    RE: Fetch 4.0.2b1

    I can now use command-J (OSX.1) to edit a file on the server, but when I save, it saves to a temp file on the local disk. I only had the program a short time before this stopped working when OSX updated, but, as I recall, a save would save it back to the server from whence it came.

    Is the an anomaly or must I do something/set something?

    Thanks,

    The "Edit with BBEdit" feature uses a local temporary file to hold the file while it is being edited and uploaded. When you choose "Save" in BBEdit, BBEdit saves the temporary file and tells Fetch to upload it.

    In your experience is Fetch uploading the file when you choose "Save" in BBEdit?

    Thanks,

    Thanks for 4.0.2.

    I just got a G4 dual processor and noticed that Fetch was using 50% of CPU on both processors when it was just sitting there.

    I was ready to bail to Interarchy only it won't read my Fetch shortcuts file, where all my passords are stored ;)

    At that point I found this, and it *does* seem to be behaving better.

    Thanks!
