Xnet Communications GmbH the independent software vendor with its
core business in data communication high-end solutions announces the
release of Captain FTP version 2.0

The new Captain FTP brings you closer to the exclusive feature sets of
commercial data transfer programs, so far only available to the
corporate user.

More than 50 thousand Mac users in the world take the advantage of the
stability and ease of use of Captain FTP. Based on the award winning
FTP engine, the new Captain FTP version incorporates a set of
features, significantly accelerating the every day work.

"For the last couple of months our development team has been
working very hard on adapting some of our top technologies into our
Captain FTP. Don’t forget the FTP protocol was developed in the

multinational fonts, a local file browser and even some sound after a
finished transfer.

Captain FTP is available in English, French, German, Japanese and
