Fetch Softworks (http://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/) has released Fetch
5.5, a new version of the Mac file transfer program. The new
version’s improved editing support lets you edit any sort of remote
file using any application.
You can also now use Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard’s Quick Look technology to
view many more kinds of remote files without leaving Fetch. What’s
more, the file transfer engine has been upgraded to upload web sites
and other large collections of files with more reliability.
Fetch takes advantage of Leopard code signing, making the system
keychain and the new Leopard application firewall more convenient to
use, according to its developers. In addition, Fetch can now upload
files to servers using the copy and paste commands. A new preference
offers better control over Fetch’s file decoding support.
Fetch 5.5 is free to try for 15 days, and a single-user license is
US$29. Upgrades are free for customers who purchased Fetch after
January 28, 2009; otherwise, upgrades are $10. Free licenses and
upgrades are available for educational and charitable use. Fetch
requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher.
