Recent changes:

1.1 (03-May-2010)

- Now uses OS4.1 Update 1's URL handler instead of
- Fixed all warnings with the latest SDK
- You can now sort by name, size or date (suggested
  by Mario Cattaneo).
- When copying multiple files, the overwrite/resume
  requester now also offers "Overwrite All", "Skip"
  and "Skip All" where appropriate (suggested by
  Heiko Gyrok).
- Uses built-in scrollwheel support instead of a
  custom IDCMP hook.

1.0 (14-Oct-2009)

- Exclusive OS4.1 Update 1 CD release
- No longer beta
- Now theres a checkbox to disable passive mode
  for servers that don't support it. Previously
  we tried to detect servers and switch automatically
  (which we still do), but it wasn't perfect, so
  now you can force it. Thanks to nexus on AW.net
  for pointing it out.
- When attempting to upload a file to an FTP server,
  it now properly copes with permission denied errors.
  Also reports it in the error log window.
- Now hides newly opened browser windows until their
  final position and size has been calculated.
- Fixed date calculations when using a non-english
  system locale (thanks to Philippe Ferrucci for the
- FINALLY fixed the mysterious stalling bugs
  (thanks to everyone who reported it, and especially
  Kicko for bugging me about it and being such a
  helpful tester).
- Added CHMOD support (I think spotUP asked for this)
- No longer leaves any images locked (thanks to
  Jahc and anyone else who reported this).
- Now has its own image set (thanks Mason)! If you want
  it to use AISS instead, add "USE_AISS=Yes" to the
- If the server responds to a PASV command with the
  IP address, PFTP now uses the server address
  instead (thanks to Jahc).
- If you have an FTP server with maximum connections set
  to more than the FTP site will allow, it'll reduce
  the maximum connections as and when logins fail. Note
  that it is better to set this value correctly in the
  first place to avoid spamming the server with logins.
- If you connect to a server without an "initial local
  directory" set, it no longer resets an adjacent local
  browser to the volume list (thanks to Mario Cattaneo).
- Copes better with 451 server errors when attempting
  to retrieve files (thanks to Janne Peräaho).  
- You can now specify a screenmode. NOTE: You have to
  quit / restart for the change to take effect.
- You can now optionally disable compositing on the PFTP
  screen to save ram. Again, a quit/restart is required.
- Whole new icon and image set created by Mason (thanks!)
- Now uses "LIST -a" instead of just "LIST" (thanks to
  Andy Broad and Joerg Strohmayer for the suggestion).
