Bug Fixes

  • Do not force files provided with UNZIP command to have .zip extensions.

  • Fix RCVFILE command to work properly with "?" wildcards.
  • Change to initial local folder defined with a given pre-defined FTP site when connecting via FTPLOGON command (behavior now same as connecting via client applet).
  • Fix so stop/skip button works when sending multiple files.
  • Fix so "skip command" button works when sending/receiving multiple files.
  • Fix "reply-to" address on CREATEMAIL command.
  • Fix bug when /tz=-1.
  • Add http program update checking and automatic update checking the first time program is run.
  • Fix month displayed in log files.
