Fetch 5.7 -- In line with the company’s goal of “relentless improvement,” Fetch Softworks has released Fetch 5.7, further refining and polishing the venerable file transfer client. Fetch 5.7 now provides a search field for restricting file lists to matching files, displays the overall progress and time remaining for multi-file transfers, preserves modification dates of uploaded files, syncs shortcuts via Dropbox or a shared file server, adds a Show Fetch.log In Finder command, automatically removes trailing spaces from the names of uploaded files, and adds support for editing remote files displayed with Quick Look. Also improved is compatibility with various server packages, user interaction with SFTP sites, and reliability of large transfers. A variety of bugs have been fixed, too. ($29 new from Fetch Softworks or the Mac App Store and free for educational users, free update from 5.5 or later, $10 upgrade for earlier purchases, 11.3 MB, release notes)
