Adventures & experiences in contemporary technology
I must admit that the release of FileZilla 3 passed me by until recently. From the user interface point of view, the changes don’t look too radical but it is now cross platform, a bonus for Linux and Mac users. It can also co-exist with FileZilla 2 for those Windows users needing features from that offering that aren’t yet available in FileZilla 3. That does pose the question: why upgrade when what you have works just as well? it just as well that transferring settings is as easy as importing the FileZilla 2 settings into its successor is as easy as importing an XML file: in version 3, go to Edit, then Import… on the menus and pick up the FileZilla.xml file from the installation directory for version 2. You might get some warnings and I certainly did but the FTP sites that I had set up already came over intact.
