Xnet Communications today announced the release of Captain FTP 4.4, which is designed to cooperate with a new software tool called CrowzNest. CrowzNest acts as a lookout and monitors local folders for activity. The folders being monitored are called Hot Folders. CrowzNest will only monitor folders nominated by the user and these folders are directly linked to a corresponding folder on a remote FTP site. There are a number of other new features, enhancements, and bug fixes included in this release, all of which are documented on the site. Captain FTP is priced starting at US$25.
