Mac FTP: Transmit 4.2 adds Retina display, ML Notification support
Once upon a time, FTP was ubiquitous and I still remember trying to teach my mom how to use it on dial-up (shudder). With broadband and high polish user interface clients, like Transmit, today’s Mac FTP is more teachable.
Nevertheless, not going there.
Portlandia’s Panic Software is shipping Transmit 4.2 (release notes). Whereas Google and Mozilla put out whole number releases full of bug fixes, this is a point-update with new features, tweaks and, yeah, fixes:
• Fixes some graphics issues on Retina displays
• Added support for Notification Center in OS X 10.8
• Fixed a possible error when dragging files from Coda 2
• Now only uses integrated graphics on supported MacBook Pro models
• No longer autofills user’s e-mail address for eList signup
Transmit is the “Cadillac” (BMW? Benz? Lexus?) Mac FTP client and 7-day trial is available direct. Those ready to buy should head on over to the Mac App Store ($33.99).
In recent Panic news, with the release of CandyBar 3.3.4, the company added Mountain Lion support and made the app free, open sourcing the project — restrictions Apple has placed on what developers can build into their apps lead to the move.
