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.
Hi there,

Totally understandable about the 1-2 punch between a one-man staff and other priorities to deal with! I know how that goes. And congrats! My wife and I are having our first daughter next month so I will be in the same boat as you.

I just downloaded the 3.7.4 beta the other day with SFTP support, and it works AWESOME. FlashFXP continues to be my fav - thanks so much for adding SFTP support. I'm glad I paid for it, I use it every day.

Good luck with the father stuff and keep up the good work on FlashFXP!
