FtpVC 2.6 Released!

We're pleased to announce the release of FtpVC 2.6, the latest version of our popular serverless version control system.

This release adds many new features to FtpVC, including Windows 7 support, a Move command for files and directories, the ability to add files without attaching them to version control, customizable columns, a command to reset disabled messages, and the storage of UTC time strings (as opposed to local time) in stub files.

FtpVC 2.6 also introduces improvements to FTP performance, and a cleaner and easier-to-read Output pane. As you can see in the screenshot below, actions, server responses, and messages are now clearly distinguishable in the Output pane:

Note that this version uses a new scheme of naming stub files (using UTC time instead of local time). As a result, all of your client desktops have to upgrade to 2.6 at the same time, and all checked-out files have to be checked in before the upgrade. FtpVC 2.6 will read the old stubs and convert them to the new format but the old versions of FtpVC will not be able to read the new stubs.

Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be posting more articles on how to use the new features of FtpVC 2.6.
