Yes, actually I did think SFTP was just going to be another internet protocol that was going to appear and fade away just as quickly. To my surprise it's becoming more and more common these days. In my opinion Secure FTP (FTP w/ SSL/TLS) is far more superior than SFTP, yet companies seem to be taking a different direction these days.

Realistically there were so many reasons not to add SFTP back in 2005, clearly we made the wrong choice. We're now looking into ways of integrating SFTP into FlashFXP without a rewrite but its a very slow process especially with me being the only developer and I have many other things on my schedule that have a higher priority.

I try to not to bring my personal life into the equation but I got married nov 03' and we had a son in june 06' and as a family man now I have a lot more responsibility and it's taking me a lot longer than I anticipated to get things done with FlashFXP, I've tried really hard to to make things go as smooth as possible but it's been a rough journey. I went from working 80+ hours a week down to about 40 hours a week.

Things will get done, It's just going to take a bit longer.
