We are pleased to announce the availability of Cyberduck 4. The most popular client to access file servers and cloud storage on the Mac makes its debut on the Windows platform after more than one year of development and serveral months of beta testing.
Beside fixing bugs, changes from the beta release include support for newly introduced features of major cloud storage providers. A single upload to S3 now runs in parallel and can be up to 5TB in size. Buckets can now be configured as website endpoints including optionally enabling CloudFront CDN. For Rackspace, their new CDN provider Akamai is supported and files at edge locations can be purged.
The full changelog is available at http://cyberduck.ch/changelog.
A plethora of protocols is supported to connect to just about any server. These are FTP/TLS (File Transfer Protocol), SFTP (SSH Secure File Transfer), WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning), Amazon S3, Google Storage, Google Docs, Windows Azure and Rackspace Cloud Files.
The browser allows to download, upload and move files using drag and drop with an hierarchical view to browse large folder structures efficiently. A history of visited servers is kept and Bonjour integration enables auto discovery of FTP and WebDAV services on the local network.
Its power feature to edit files with any external editor application makes it easy to edit content quickly, uploading changes to the server upon save in the background.
Manage your Google Docs synchronizing documents en masse, with the option to convert uploads for editing and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for images.
The ground breaking simplicity of Cyberduck wraps advanced configuration options for content distribution in the cloud into an easily accessible and intuitive user interface. With support for custom origins, you can connect to any server using FTP or SFTP and configure it as the origin to fetch content for distribution using Amazon CloudFront CDN.
Access to files can be restricted with read and write permissions including support for Access Control Lists (ACL) when working with Amazon S3 or Google Storage. One can limit access to files stored in Google Storage selectively to an email address making secure sharing of potentially big files with collaborators a snap.
Other advanced options supported for S3 are storage redundancy levels, geographical location, file versioning (including revert), access log configuration and multi-factor authentication (MFA) to secure files from deletion using a one-time passcode from a hardware token.
SFTP supports public key authentication with both OpenSSH and PuTTY key formats.
An integrated software update component makes sure you are always using the latest and greatest of the steadily improved software. For users migrating to Cyberduck from third-party software, bookmarks with connection details of various third-party FTP clients are imported.
Cyberduck speaks your language and is available in English, čeština, Nederlands, Suomi, Français, Deutsch, Italiano, 日本語, 한국어, Norsk, Slovenčina, Español, Português (do Brasil), Português (Europeu), 中文 (简体), 正體中文 (繁體), Русский, Svenska, Dansk, Język Polski, Magyar, Bahasa Indonesia, Català, Cymraeg, ภาษาไทย, Türkçe, Ivrit, Latviešu Valoda, Ελληνικά, Cрпски, ქართული ენა, Slovenščina, українська мова & Română.
