Other news
Unless critical bugs are found, this will be the last release in the 0.3.x series. It will most likely also be the last version of bareFTP based on C#, GTK# and Mono.

Work has started on on a brand new 0.4 release where much of the core design are rewritten. This work is currently being done in Python, using pygobject to target GTK+ 3.

The release/0.3 branch will remain accessible for anyone wanting to fork it and continue the Mono based version.

  1. Thanks for the update.

    0.4 release, will it only be GTK+ 3 compatible or GTK+ 2 too?

    Nice idea to switch from mono to python.
    Nice work! I love bareFTP!

    Btw bareFTP is going to be rewritten so could it have some graphical interface changes too.
    By graphical interface changes i mean something more modern like no application menu, but simply a menu button which contains all that stuff (like in chrome/elementary applications).
    It would be cool if bareFTP would get some cool and modern interface changes like cyberduck, ubuntu one client, elementary applications or even like the new gnome mockups

    Keep up the good work !

      The move to gtk3 makes it a bit easier to style the app in general, and I’d sure like to modernize the gui in the future.
      I plan to keep the gui up-to-date as gnome in general evolves. I also hope the move to python will help to attract some contributions from other devs.
      The focus for the first python based release however is simply to get everything working, and working well (better than the current version). The gui will look more or less the same as today.
      So far everything looks very promising.

  4. Steven says:

    This sounds very good to me. I hope the new design will integrate nicely with Unity and GNOME 3, but first the fonctionality ! I embrace the python version let’s get a mono-free ftp client but wouldn’t a rewrite from Mono to Vala be easier ?

    Why not translate to boo?
    boo is python like and compiled to CLR.
    Sharpdevelop and Unity IDE support boo.
    Using sharpdevelop there is an automatic translation of projects.
    Unity is a game IDE and the performance of boo is very good.

  6. Paul says:

    Trying to connect to my FritzBox by FTPS I get the folowing message:

    220 FRITZ!BoxFonWLAN7390(UI) FTP server ready.
    234 Authentication method accepted
    Server certificate error: RemoteCertificateChainErrors
    Try disabling Server Certificate Validation
    Certificate Error (The authentication or decryption has failed.)

    What’s wrong there?

    • Christian says:

      In general this means that bareFTP failed to validate the ssl certificate on the server. You can bypass this by disabling “Server Certificate Validation” in the SSL tab in prefrences.

      • Paul says:

        I’m afraid I can’t. Certificate Validation is required by the router. Of course I could disable this on my router but then I don’t need the FTPS. Then I can use FTP without any encryption.

        • Al_ says:

          What happens if you disable server certificate validation in bareFTP? In my opinion, the router (i.e., any host for that matter) should not even realize that bareFTP (the client) omits server certificate validation. It is IMO only a risk for the client (the client = the user can not be sure whether the ftp server is indeed the server it claims to be), but no risk for the server (it is sure that the client is correct, thanks to client certificate and/or passphrase)
