ForkLift 2 - The Second Coming of File Management

in Networks and FTP (E)

[] Budapest, Hungary - BinaryNights today is pleased to announce the latest version of ForkLift, the world's most advanced dual-pane file manager and FTP client for Mac OS X. This major release was rewritten from the ground up to bring enhanced speed and stability, as well as exciting new features such as Disklets, Stacks, Transfer Queue, Synclets, Favorites Manager, and Coverflow view. Existing features have also been masterfully revamped, like RegExp in search and filtering, a much improved Multi-Rename, and superb fine-grain control for Folder Sync operations.

The complete rewrite of their codebase shows most in the transfer engine - file transfers have never felt so blazingly fast. Create and manage archives, edit files, use Quicklook, batch-rename, and organize with ease between all types of volumes, local or remote, including full support for FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, S3, iDisk, SMB, AFP and NIS. In addition, a new Disklets feature allows you mount any of your remote connections, making them appear to your Mac as local drives.

Many workflow enhancements make ForkLift your go-to app for unprecedented productivity. Stacks are virtual containers for working with many disparate files across multiple volumes - drop files from many different directories in a Stack and then zip them up or copy to a remote folder. Workspaces allow you to save a snapshot of your current directories and connections to jump right back where you were working. Oversee and manage all your operations in the new Transfer Queue, with comprehensive conflict management and file reordering, even pausing the queue with one click.

When you need to keep two folders in sync, nothing tops the ease and power of ForkLift's completely renovated Folder Sync. Set up powerful rules, now with RegExp, detailing exactly what files you want to keep in sync, then quickly adjust file-by-file in the comprehensive preview. Save your setups as Synclets and put them right on your dock for one-button, instant updating. Staying up-to-date has never been easier.

You now have at-a-glance view of current progress in the Docked Activity Viewer - no more keeping track of floating windows. The new Favorites Manager is also integrated right in the main window, popping up in the pane you want to connect. Managing large numbers of favorites is not only dead-easy but gorgeous to boot.

About ForkLift:
ForkLift is not only a robust and elegant file manager, fully embracing the Apple methodology of bringing incredible power to a beautiful and easy-to-use, approachable interface, it also integrates multiple features you would normally buy in many separate applications. Batch Rename, App Deleter, Archive creation & management, powerful Folder Sync, and the ability to Split and Combine large files are all at your fingertips.

ForkLift focuses on a highly-productive, tabbed dual-pane interface, allowing you to mix and match connections to any remote server or local share using FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, S3, iDisk, SMB, AFP and NIS. As familiar as Finder, but with all the power and versatility you need to blaze through file management like you never thought possible.
