Reminding everyone that Fetch and Transmit aren’t the only players in the file transfer app game, the Cyberduck team has released version 4.3 of the open source app, the first update since late 2011. The biggest news is that Cyberduck has dropped support for Dropbox, Google Drive, and Windows Azure, enabling the developers to get their ducks in a row to improve support for Amazon S3 (though a Cyberduck blog post notes that the team may reintroduce support for Azure and Google Drive should user demand be significant). The new release gets updates for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion with support for Gatekeeper and Notification Center, plus it adds support for Retina displays. Cyberduck is now also integrated with Qloudstat, a service that provides analytics and monitoring for CloudFront distributions, S3 buckets, and containers in Rackspace CloudFiles. A few days after this update came out, Cyberduck 4.3.1 was released with a fix for an issue that prevented the app from setting the speed limit to unlimited. Cyberduck is free, though you can support it via a donation or a $23.99 purchase made through the Mac App Store. (Free, 26.1 MB, release notes)

I currently dont have a "clean" machine at hand to check it out. I recently did a fresh install on several clients and they are all already "poisoned" with Java 6 with Cyberduck being a major reason for it. Anyway I thought it was worth to mention. I like Java a lot, but from an admins perspective, it is no good on common client machines for office purposes any longer.
