However I ONLY see the text (indented) in the console unless I click around and try to highlight a region to see the rest, and the popup console window doesn't even show the text if highlighted but somehow it can cut/paste it correctly...
I'm not aware of any changes that could of caused this, you can fix the status window colors via the Preferences dialog > Interface > Colors > Status Window.

'list *foo*' was turning into 'STAT *foo*T' which is just wrong...
FlashFXP will auto detect if the server supports the T parameter and include it where necessary.

Are you sending STAT directly via a raw command or using it as the list command with parameters?


The T parameter should only be added when performing the list command, a raw command "STAT" should not include it, I did notice that there is a bug the logic for including the T, it should not be included if the STAT parameters contain a space.

I'm not sure that's a bad idea, but if that's intended it should be trying pasv/list and not port/list first.

Is there a way to get around list->stat conversion in the very rare cases where I want to do it all manually? I can't think anybody else would, but when testing ioFTPD I sometimes intentionally break things to see what happens
When you use LIST via raw commands it is interpreted as a list request and is converted to use whatever you have defined as your list command in the site manager.

To simply life for users and us it was done this way, though it probably should be done as "&list" and allow LIST to be sent directly, we opted to just pass LIST to our list handler routine which uses the settings defined by the site. I recall prior to this many customers couldn't figure out why the raw command LIST didn't work, its not so obvious that there's a lot more going on in the background than just sending a single command.
