Project update

October 7th, 2012

I guess some of you are wondering what is going on with bareftp these days, and the truth is – not much. I started out on a python port about a year ago, and was about 70-80% done when other (paid) projects distracted me. I am still busy with other projects and probably will be for a few months. This doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten all about bareftp, and I still want to get the rewrite done. So, for those thinking bareftp is dead, this is a little update on what is (not) happening.

The current state of the new bareftp is:

  • Pure python
  • Works with python 2 and 3
  • GTK+ 3 / pygobject GUI mostly done
  • Basic FTP connections and transfers working fine
  • Bookmarks compatible with the old format

The missing parts:

  • SSL/TLS connections (should be fairly simple)
  • SSH/SFTP (will use paramiko, and hope for python 3 support soon)
  • Some GUI improvements and cleanups

So.. when? I honestly don’t know. It all depends on available time and motivation, but I hope to get going on this again soon.

For anyone interested, the source can be found at https://github.com/chreide/bareftp

Any kind of help are appreciated!

Other news
Unless critical bugs are found, this will be the last release in the 0.3.x series. It will most likely also be the last version of bareFTP based on C#, GTK# and Mono.

Work has started on on a brand new 0.4 release where much of the core design are rewritten. This work is currently being done in Python, using pygobject to target GTK+ 3.

The release/0.3 branch will remain accessible for anyone wanting to fork it and continue the Mono based version.

bareFTP 0.3.7 is here. It fixes several bugs reported since the 0.3.6 release, and adds a synchronized browse capability.

Express update: 0.3.4 released

May 7th, 2010

Just a few days after last release, the problem reports start to arrive. The gnome-keyring issues were apparently not solved 100% with the last release. Several different issues were reported from various distros.

This bugfix release will make bareFTP hang in there and stay usable, even if GnomeKeyring communication fails. I guess it is a situation we’ll have to live with on some distros for a while, untill gnome-keyring-sharp is fixed upstream and rolled out on the distros. Keyring communications with gnome 2.30+ is reported to work on Ubuntu lucid and other distros using the gnome 2.30 compatibilty patch for gnome-keyring-sharp.

Upgrade is strongly recommended.

I want to thank Stefan Ebner and Michał Lisowski for valuable bug reports and testing leading to this release.

Bugs fixed

  • #35: Unhandled exception when trying to use gnome keyring (better fix than in 0.3.3)
  • #37: gnome-keyring problem (crash)
  • #38: Can’t build without gnome-keyring
  • Revert correctly to previous dir on failed local dir change
  • Fixed possible problem when swithing keyring mode with no password file present

You can download bareFTP 0.3.4 source from the download area. Packages for the various distros will follow.

You may also read the release notes for the related release 0.3.3 and 0.3.2.

bareFTP 0.3.3 released

May 4th, 2010

A new version is out, a bit before schedule. This had to be rushed a bit, because of the somewhat broken c# wrapper for Gnome Keyring when using GNOME 2.30.

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid has partly solved the problem with a patched version of gnome-keyring-sharp. This version has a few workarounds to make bareFTP work properly with that patched version of gnome-keyring-sharp. Hopefully other distros go for the same patch.

This release also brings one new feature (see below).

New features:

  • Ability to send custom ftp commands to server
    A new item “Send Command” has been added to the from right-click context menu on the remote side. This will bring up a dialog box for sending a command to the ftp server. The output will be printed in the message window. Use this feature with caution, as some commands may cause unexpected results.Send Command 1

    Send Command 2

Bugs fixed:

  • #35 – Unhandled exception when trying to use gnome keyring

New/updated translations:

  • Polish (pl)
