The update to the venerable file transfer client also corrects a problem with sorting the file list while searching, fixes a bug where dragged items were uploaded into the last folder of the file list, resolves multiple problems with dragging items between transfer windows, adds support for servers that use for passive mode, restores support for opening a transfer window by clicking the Dock icon, corrects a problem with up- and down-arrow keys when keyboard navigation is enabled, and fixes a bug with mirror downloads not deleting stray items.

  1. It failed to update from Fetch 5.8.1 on a MacBookPro (15-inch 2016) running macOS Big Sur Version 11.1. The pop up seems to show the download advancing to completion but when I click the install relaunch nothing happens.

  2. Thanks. Fetch is a great product that I’ve used for years. I always appreciate the great support.
