What's new in MacCommander

Version 1.16:
  • Minor improvements in GUI (the panels alignment when the tab bar is off, no vertical grid in the file browsers)
  • Add an option for the user to show file extension in ‘Name’ column
  • Content of a FTP/SFTP directory containing lot of symbolic links is loaded much faster
  • Use of anonymous FTP services is simplified
  • Allow re-trying failed FTP/SFTP operation (when "Continue?" dialog is shown)
  • The user can now go to an enclosed folder of a found file from the search results panel
  • The app does not ask for permission for accessing protected folders (like Desktop) which results in no-access
  • The app should not allow for AppNap when it is performing a user requested operation
  • A FTP symlink is always recognized as broken when its target has a space in the name
  • When uploading, the calculated size does not take into account the symlinks handling strategy
  • Synchronizing patches between the panels when there is a SFTP opened may lead to multiplying connections
  • When the app was closed with ftp/sftp dir shown, it will always show the tab bar next time it is started
  • Unable to close the progress dialog when an operation completes while the app is minimized or hidden
  • Counting directory size for FTP/SFTP makes progress dialog appear and disappear sometimes
