Hot on the heels of the previous version is Panic’s Transmit 4.1.7, a minor update to the file transfer software that’s worth getting particularly if you use Transmit Disks, since it fixes a problem where Transmit Disk volumes would fail to mount. Also fixed is a Lion-related issue where line numbers failed to scroll in the editor. Finally, Panic made Transmit’s Favorites sidebar icons monochrome to better match Lion.
