Cyberduck 4.6.5
Browse, download and upload files quickly and easily with Cyberduck

The web is so ubiquitous these days that many people think that it’s the internet as opposed to an – admittedly – ever-increasing part of it. There’s email, usenet (for newsgroups) and FTP. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and is used for the storage and transfer of files over the internet. Although largely eclipsed by the web – and it’s possible to access online storage through your web browser – FTP remains a valuable resource for those whose business involves transferring large numbers of files over the internet and who find email or the web unable to handle their needs.

As a consequence, FTP clients like Filezilla still prove popular, and now there’s a client on the scene that could potentially redefine the landscape. Cyberduck is already well known to Mac users, but has now been ported across to Windows, and offers far more than just a simple FTP client: it also supports FTP/TFL, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Google Docs, Google Storage, Windows Azure, and Rackspace Cloud Files.

Once installed, the program will detect any FTP accounts in other clients (including Filezilla) and import them across – you’ll then see a list of all connections as a series of drive icons: click one to connect or set up a new connection manually. An Explorer-like view of your remote location will open, enabling you to browse your files. Downloading and uploading can be done via the supplied controls, but we had problems getting the program to upload anything using the upload button. Thankfully, Cyberduck supports full drag-and-drop from other folder windows, and this worked with no problems.

The program is open source, but you will be prompted to make a donation each time a new version is released. It’s still early days for this Windows version, but the signs are that this could be a serious player in the FTP client market.

Cyberduck 4.6 changes include:

[Feature] Support PAC files for proxy configuration (Mac) (#2607)
[Feature] Add support for buckets in region eu-central-1 (Frankfurt) (S3) (#8302)
[Feature] Support authentication signature version AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 (S3) (#8302)
[Feature] Improved error reporting on connection failures
[Feature] Verify MD5 checksum for multipart uploads (S3)
[Feature] Disabled SSLv3 (HTTP)
[Feature] Improved performance downloading and mirroring files
[Bugfix] Connecting using authentication with SSH agent (SFTP)
[Bugfix] Interoperability with SSH Tectia Server (#8166)
[Bugfix] Interoperability with Eucalyptus Object Storage (S3) (#8216)
[Bugfix] Reconnect on disconnect (#8205)
[Bugfix] Remember last selected directory per bookmark in upload and save panel (#8242)
[Bugfix] Edited file with unicode character in parent path does not upload on save (#8244) (Mac)
[Bugfix] Repeat failed networking tasks by default (#8237)
[Bugfix] Allow connecting to accounts with a multitude of containers (OpenStack Swift) (#8198)

Verdict:

Cyberduck is a powerful free FTP client made popular on the Mac, but now available for your PC

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
