I just downloaded 6.5, which they are calling a beta, and sent them this email that I'm reposting here:
I'm using 6.5 beta. I thought you were going to have file listings with "down" triangles next to folders like in Finder windows, Transmit, Filezilla, etc…? I'm tired of having to double-click to drill down to a folder/file that may be nested 10 folders deep. And no, I don't want to create a 'favorite as folders' that I access because the folders change all the time and are on different servers. Nor do I want to create a virtual folder. Talk about unsecure, tedious, and another waste of programming. What is wrong with you people? You've been promising this functionality, at least to me, since version 5 and we can get it in a free program like Filezilla? Even Transmit has it.
Open up your applications folder. Hit command+2. See the cute little triangles on the left? Is that so hard to duplicate? Geez, if this doesn't come out in the final of 6.5 I'm switching to Transmit or something else. The only thing stopping me is that I can't export my address book (over 25 servers as I'm a web developer) into anything usable in another FTP program. I'm getting carpal tunnel from all the double-clicking just to get to a stupid file or folder that happens to be nested deep in the bowels of a server.
I also can't have different editors for different file types, and there's still no quick look (just a View button, or shift+cmd+L). Why can't it just be as simple as hitting the space bar as in the Finder and Transmit? Sure you have a lot of options, but it's overkill. In all the years I've used CFTP, I never once used virtual folders or favorite folders. You crammed $129 worth of stuff into a program, sell it for $29, and then make it an unpleasant experience that is NOT growing with the times or the Mac OS X.
Also, beta or not, the program crashes at least once a week, usually when I'm doing something mission critical. Why don't you sell a slimmed down version with the stuff people want, an interface that's like the Finder, and then make a version of this and sell it to Windows users.
