A major new version of Cyberduck is now available. The focus of version 3.8 is the integration of Amazon CloudFront CDN (Content Delivery Network) for the rest of us. With support for custom origins, there is no need to upload content to S3, but original content can be served from an ordinary web server and then distributed using the network of edge locations in the CloudFront CDN. 
Cyberduck allows the setup and configuration of CloudFront custom origins with a straight-forward user interface. Additionally,a a new invalidation feature also allows to remove content from edge locations in CloudFront that have been accidentally distributed. Detailed information about configuration options can be found in the wiki documentation at .
There is now also support to connect to a Swift Storage (Openstack) installation, an emerging open standard for cloud storage server software. Other areas of changes include massive throughput performance improvments for SFTP transfers and many interoperability fixes with third-party tools for S3 storage.
Please refer to http://cyberduck.ch/changelog/ for a more detailed list of the many additional features and bufixes in this release not discussed here. Users can upgrade using the automatic 'Check for Update...' feature. Mac OS X 10.5 or later required.
A public beta of Cyberduck for Windows will be available later this month. Version 4.0 and onward will be on par for both Mac and Windows .
