Transmit’s taken another nice version leap — this time to 3.6! (Well, technically, 3.6.1.)
– So what’s new in transmit 3.6
There are two new features worth talking about in a little more detail!
Amazon S3: For a while now, a dedicated group of Transmit users have been asking for a major new feature: support for Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service). What’s S3?
Well, imagine having an infinitely-large hard drive that can serve an unlimited number of users — that’s Amazon S3. It’s a paid service that Amazon provides to host and serve files at a reasonable price. There’s only one hitch — S3 doesn’t use a standard protocol to manage the files and folders you want them to serve — so Transmit couldn’t do it.
Copy Web URL: Transmit 3.6 also adds another long-requested feature: you can now easily copy full web URLs for remote items. What’s that mean? Well, let’s say you use FTP to upload an image to your web server, and then you want to send to your friends the web address where they can see that image in their bowser. Previously, you’d have to piece together that “http://” URL yourself, by hand.
In Transmit 3.6, you can now specify a Root URL in any Favorite. That’s the root web address you use to access your files in a web browser. Once you’ve done that, just upload a file, highlight it, and choose Edit > Copy — bingo, you’ve now got a workable web address on your clipboard! You can even choose Preview in Browser in the File menu, or contextual menu, to immediately see a remote item in your web browser. If you’re a web developer, we think you’ll like this new feature a lot.
