Express update: 0.3.4 released

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Just a few days after last release, the problem reports start to arrive. The gnome-keyring issues were apparently not solved 100% with the last release. Several different issues were reported from various distros.

This bugfix release will make bareFTP hang in there and stay usable, even if GnomeKeyring communication fails. I guess it is a situation we’ll have to live with on some distros for a while, untill gnome-keyring-sharp is fixed upstream and rolled out on the distros. Keyring communications with gnome 2.30+ is reported to work on Ubuntu lucid and other distros using the gnome 2.30 compatibilty patch for gnome-keyring-sharp.

Upgrade is strongly recommended.

I want to thank Stefan Ebner and MichaƂ Lisowski for valuable bug reports and testing leading to this release.

Bugs fixed

  • #35: Unhandled exception when trying to use gnome keyring (better fix than in 0.3.3)
  • #37: gnome-keyring problem (crash)
  • #38: Can’t build without gnome-keyring
  • Revert correctly to previous dir on failed local dir change
  • Fixed possible problem when swithing keyring mode with no password file present

You can download bareFTP 0.3.4 source from the download area. Packages for the various distros will follow.

bareFTP 0.3.3 released

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

A new version is out, a bit before schedule. This had to be rushed a bit, because of the somewhat broken c# wrapper for Gnome Keyring when using GNOME 2.30.

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid has partly solved the problem with a patched version of gnome-keyring-sharp. This version has a few workarounds to make bareFTP work properly with that patched version of gnome-keyring-sharp. Hopefully other distros go for the same patch.

This release also brings one new feature (see below).

New features:

  • Ability to send custom ftp commands to server
    A new item “Send Command” has been added to the from right-click context menu on the remote side. This will bring up a dialog box for sending a command to the ftp server. The output will be printed in the message window. Use this feature with caution, as some commands may cause unexpected results.Send Command 1

    Send Command 2

Bugs fixed:

  • #35 – Unhandled exception when trying to use gnome keyring

New/updated translations:

  • Polish (pl)
