FlashFXP v4.3.1.1977 @ 6/01/2013
  • Improved error handling and recovery in the event of a connection loss during rename and chmod operations.
FlashFXP v4.3.1.1975 @ 5/27/2013
  • Fixed a complex issue that resulted in files being uploaded into the wrong location on the remote server. Specifically if the connection was lost while making a remote folder a series of safety checks would fail to detect that the connection was lost before executing a fragment of code that was intended to handle situations where the remote server renames the folder to suit the server file system, this code inadvertently changed the target path to an incorrect location. To address this issue additional safety checks have been added to verify and validate the reply to the make directory command and the connection status state.
FlashFXP v4.3.1.1971 @ 5/24/2013
  • Fixed a rare drawing issue in the user interface that effected a small number of users, resulting in overlapping elements where the previous elements were not erased.

  • Fixed: An access violation error in SHLWAPI.dll when sorting the queue list or file list.
FlashFXP v4.3.1.1969 @ 5/18/2013
  • A couple more tweaks to the synchronized browsing feature to prevent out of sync issues. Please let me know if the problems persist.
  • New global hot-key Ctrl+Shift+/ will change the toolbar background to a random solid color, this can be used to help identify which window is which. (experimental feature)
  • Fixed several crashes based on user submitted bug reports. Please remember to include a description when submitting bug reports.
  • Fixed several crashes when closing FlashFXP while the Server file search dialog is active.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes allowed raw commands via the command line input to be executed while FlashFXP was busy performing an operation.
  • New feature, when a raw command is executed via the raw command line input and FlashFXP is busy performing an operation the raw command will be en-queued. (experimental feature)
  • Added the ability to set the toolbar background to a custom solid color (no styling) via the Preferences dialog > Interface > Toolbar > background. (experimental feature)
FlashFXP v4.3.1.1967 @ 5/15/2013
  • Fixed an issue with global/per-site file transfer rules not applying to scheduled tasks, instead the scheduled task was always applying the task defined file transfer rules, even if none were defined.
  • Fixed scheduled task > new/edit task > schedule tab, the repeat task until setting was allowed to be unchecked on Windows versions prior to Vista, however only Vista and up do not require this setting to be filled in. (This is specific to the Windows Task Scheduler and newer versions of Windows have additional features not found on older versions)
  • Fixed an issue where a scheduled task using a dynamic queue would create a temporary queue file each time the task was run.
FlashFXP v4.3.1.1966 @ 5/13/2013
  • Fixed several issues with remote edits.
    • If a remote edit is performed while offline on a file that was previously opened via remote edit in the same session a file modification was detected and triggered an automatic upload. (when the default action on save is set to upload)
    • Under some rare conditions If the connection to the server is lost while downloading a file for remote edit then FlashFXP could sometimes mistake this for a successful download. Combined with the previous bug this could result in erasing the remote file.
    • Under some conditions the "active edits" window failed to redraw the file list after a failed upload and the 'modified' indicator wasn't drawn.
    • On the "active edits" window the button that switches the view between current edits and all edits didn't always add previously edited files to the current edits view.
  • Fixed remote file list item selection; after moving a file/folder via drag/drop the next item in the list appeared to be selected and focused but the correct state was only focused.
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes prevent a ftp upload from being resumed after losing connection to the server.
  • Local browser "On keyboard: Enter Key" now properly handles multiple file selections.
  • Fixed multiple issues with the synchronized browsing feature that sometimes resulted in out of sync browsing.
FlashFXP v4.3.1.1957 @ 4/30/2013
  • Fixed drag/drop issue where the returned filename ended in a null character. Some users saw this issue appear as the filename being modified on upload as file.ext_ where the null was replaced with a _

  • Fixed: a regression that resulted in a delayed drag/drop when dragging from the remote browser panes.
  • Fixed: Attempting to delete items from a remote server while working offline would randomly fail to delete anything, the connection was restored but the item selection was sometimes lost during the reconnect.

FlashFXP v4.3.0.1933 @ 2/13/2013
4.3.0 Stable
New and Improved features
  • Updated SFTP engine to the latest version.
  • Improved screen reader support. If you find some issues please let us know so that we can get them resolved. We've tested with Windows-Eyes and NVDA. All controls should now provide proper descriptions when tabbed, mouse over, or selected.
  • Many improvements to the task scheduler. (when modifying or creating a task the syntax and parameters used by FlashFXP have changed, These changes are not backwards compatible with previous releases.)
  • Improved FTP uploading where the connection would sometimes be dropped at the end of the transfer.
  • Many code optimizations and performance (speed) improvements.
  • Added [Site Manager] multiple select to the site list. This should make it easier to manage sites, specifically when wanting to delete or move a selection of sites at a time.
  • Improved [Preserve File Date/Upload] feature, this operation is now executed as a separate operation after the file transfer completes, this is done so that if the command fails it doesn't confuse the user into thinking the transfer failed. More information is available on our website at https://asia.flashfxp.com/forum/flashfxp/faq/15850-video-file-upload-hangs-99%25.html
  • Changed [Task Schedule] property repeat until configuration to allow "until" to be optional, when unchecked the task will run indefinitely. Previously there was no clear way to set this.
  • Added [Translation] input validation for the Personal ID number field.
  • Improved [Queue/Operation] en-queue delete logic to check to see if the same file/folder is queued for transfer and re-order the delete operation if determined that the file would be deleted prior to transfer. Most users would want to delete the file after the transfer not before. This check is on the source file location.
  • Added [file list] icon shortcut overlays to symbolic links to files, when the file is detected as a symbolic link, not all servers will indicate when a file is actually a symbolic link.
  • Improved [tree navigation] performance by eliminating a bottleneck that resulted in a 50% speed increase during certain operations.
  • Added the ability to drop external folders/shortcuts on the local browser address bar to quickly jump to the folder of the dropped item.
  • Improved performance (6x speed increase) when transferring many small files over low latency connections.
  • Added the ability to use the keyboard shortcut shift+End during a rename (f2) to select the whole filename.
  • Changed the way data channel sockets/objects are created and managed to improve efficiency and performance.
  • Improved the way site to site transfers are aborted. This new method has been tested with pure-ftpd, gene6 ftp, proftpd, glftpd, ioftpd, vsftpd, drftpd, and serv-u.
  • Added a file replace dialog when attempting to move a file into a location that already contains a file with the same name allowing the user to select the desired action, overwrite, skip, rename, cancel.
  • Improved the user experience (reduced flicker) when minimizing and restoring the main window to/from the maximized state.
  • Improved content layout and position when using large fonts or font scaling.
