SFTPPlus 3.0.0 Release

Fri 18 September 2015 | general release

We are pleased to announce the latest major release of SFTPPlus, version 3.0.0 which unifies the client-side and server-side functionality into a single product.

Here are the major changes:

  • The product was renamed from SFTPPlus Server to just SFTPPlus. In some places, to avoid confusing it with the previous SFTPPlus Client, the new SFTPPlus product is referred to as SFTPPlus MFT.
  • All log handlers were converted to event handlers. This allows an unified method for interacting the the audit events produced by SFTPPlus.
  • All authentication methods are now explicitly defined and ordered. You can now choose the order in which different authentication methods are used.
  • Client-side file transfers were introduced using locations and transfers. Locations represent the endpoint servers used by the file transfers. Transfers represent the rules for exchanging files between locations.
  • On Linux and Unix, when running the process using a dedicated service account all event handlers and the log files are handled by the dedicated service account. In the previous version they were handled as the root account.

These are just the highlights of this release. For more details, including the list of fixed defects, please see the full release notes.
