    Not sure if this has been mentioned on here yet...

    Transmit version 3 has just been released. The most obvious improvement is the addition of column view so that it behaves just like Finder. Server-to-server transfer looks useful too.

    The upgrade price of $17.95 is a little steep IMHO, considering the purchase price is $29.95. Guess I'll try the new version for a bit longer and see how it performs.

    Thanks for posting that, aus_dave. The new features are pretty cool, but I agree that the upgrade price is a little disappointing. I'll probably stick with version 2 for the meantime.

    Wow, nice. I loved Transmit 2.x when I used it. Good to know they're not standing still as far as development goes. I'm not developing any sites right now, and don't need a FTP software, but if/when I do, I'll make sure I check 3.0 out.

    I tried it out and at first I thought it was kind of buggy... but after turning off "passive mode" in the preferences it seems to be working fine now with a server that I connect to daily.

    It's a bit faster than RBrowserLite - but still doesn't have one feature that I love, which is the ability to have folders show up at the top of a file listing.

    I'm going to keep trying it out though, along with Interarchy. It's time for me to replace RBrowserLite with something better. :D

    Transmit's synchronize feature managed to wipe out all the data on my 120GB drive. Thanks Panic! At least give us a warning or at least give us the ability to recover the data.

    I love transmit 2 and owned a licensed copy. While I haven't d/l'd 3, Synching in 2 was sketchy (see above...) and not being able to type in or copy/paste a directory path is a little annoying.

    That said, it runs great and it's the only FTP program I use on OSX.

    If you hit Command-Shift-G, a box will pop up where you can type in or copy/paste a directory path.

    I guess you go to OU..... I'm a UT student...
