    Does anyone know if version 4.0.3 of fetch will work with Leopard? It looks like the upgrade to 5 is just visual not an issue that is compatible. I am stuck in the aiport and doing research.

    Fetch 4.0.3 mostly works fine with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, although there may be a few minor cosmetic glitches.

    The upgrade from Fetch 4 to Fetch 5 is much more than visual. While it does feature a redesigned look, some of its other major new features are:

    * A toolbar containing the most commonly used commands
    * A file list that behaves more like the familiar Mac OS X Finder
    * Shortcuts and recent connections easily accessible in the New Connection dialog
    * Droplet shortcuts - drag files to an icon in your Dock or on your Desktop to upload to your favorite servers; no need to enter connection information
    * Built-in Zip and StuffIt support - compress and upload files in one step
    * WebView - easily view files in your browser and copy web addresses
    * Universal binary for better performance on Intel-based Macintosh computers
    * Improved security - support for SFTP and FTP with SSL (FTPS) connections, the two most common secure file transfer standards; Fetch now stores passwords in the Mac OS X keychain
    * Expanded help with many how-to topics and a complete reference for all of Fetch's windows, menus, and preferences
    * Improved compatibility with NATs, proxies, and firewalls
    * A dashboard widget, Automator actions, and resume upload capability

    Please let us know if you have further questions. And we hope you're not stuck in the airport for too long!
