What is boiling down for the next major version?
Apr 13th, 2018 at 11:19am
I am simply curious to know what is boiling down for a new major version of WD (if any).

Do you plan to change the software GUI refreshing the actual icons and/or changing the overall UI?

Last but not least I would like to know when do you plan to extend the SFTP plugin adding support for private/public key authentication, both alone and with password authentication.

Thanks in advance.

We did not start yet for WD5 but it is likely to be next year.

As we have to move the build environment for WD5 to a completely new toolset it will be quite some work.

Moving to the new toolset will allow
- Better localization (Spanish and French are a bit lacking now, German is good)
- 64bit support
- Unicode implementation

And yes, we can also implement private keys for SFTP with the new toolset. We already did it for our other program

We have quite a big list of new plugins planned for a new major release.....
