7 December-2002 V 1.17

30-November-2002 V 1.16
Improvements: Connection mode is now selectable in properties dialog box. As a safety, mouse clicks on nodes are now ignored while data is loaded. Bug fix: Pscp/plink host were wrongly converted to ssh hosts
23-November-2002 V 1.15
Improvements: Added a "Ssh" connection mode (combining the best of both scp and sftp -faster and more convenient). Ascii/binary transfer mode is now implemented from plink/pscp as well. User configurable "ls" command implemented for the pscp connection mode. Better column sorting + several adjustments and minor bug fixes.

with some configurations. Added two buttons; "Toggle local folders" and "Add remote Host". Some other small improvements
7-september-2002 V 1.11
Improvements: Drag and drop to external applications is implemented (limitations: no file
conversion and no folder copy)Ascii file conversion between UNIX and DOS is introduced
(Ascii, Binary and Auto Mode). Logging in to a directory different from the
home or root directory had a bug causing file transfers to stop working.
4-september-2002 V 1.10
Improvements: Completely reworked the local computer explorer panes (left side tree and
list views). Much nicer design of the log and queue panes. Many minor adjustments and bug-fixes
in response to helpful user feedback, like: Automatic refresh after copy, no double entries,
handling special characters (like spaces in filenames) properly and dropping on a folder now
copies to the right location.
20-July-2002 V 1.09
New Feature: Now handles double-click actions on the remote host,
showing the registered icons and the file type, depending on the extension
15-July-2002 Secure iXplorer V1.08 - First
Secure iXplore Version with Sftp Support +Other New Features
New Features: Now fully supports sftp for the first time. Ssh2 is
the new default protocol (more secure). Putty sessions are tightly
integrated in the application making it very easy to open a command
line session (simply by clicking on a button).
Improvements: Better optimised and faster communication with the
remote host. Multiple copies of the application can now run
simultaneously (sftp only). Cleaned up the layout somewhat by
introducing separate transfer forms (both sftp and scp).
This version builds on the experiences of iXplorer V0.18 (see
its history here).
Earlier versions of Secure iXplorer (version 1.x) were internal alpha version
or beta versions. V1.08 is the first official release.
