Transmit 2.0 beta looks good, very good.

I was a lucky Mac user today and got in on the private beta test of the next version of Transmit
. Back in the day, I bought Transmit when it's name was Transit (no "m") because I liked it so much (I was a reformed Fetch user). The short story for this new version is that it's cocoa native, has a much improved tool bar, and can show unix file permissions inline. That's great stuff, and so far, no crashes. Here's a few more vital features in the new version...
- The icon is cool (ok, this isn't vital, but it's cool)
- native long filename support
- significantly more flexible interface
- supports fully secure and encrypted FTP connections to via SFTP/SSH
- You can queue downloads
- There's a built in text editor, but BBEdit it ain't (but it's still nice to have)
There's a lot more in there, but who knows how long the beta test will last, so you may have to wait a while to get the goodies.
