This is currently on our to-do-list:
- Segmented downloading
Get a file in multiple "threads" to speed up
transfers, if the server allows it.
- FTP console for manual command entry
- Support for other protocols
- Peace on Earth
FTraQ is in development and there is not yet an official
release. If you want to play with the code, see our hacking page.
FTraQ was originally developed as a university project by
Steffen Sauder, Martin Wehner, Alex Jasse, Andreas Dribbusch, and
Erik Möller. Now it is an open source project where everyone
can participate. If you have any questions, feel free to ask (email Erik). Eventually, we
hope to turn FTraQ into more than just an FTP client: The
architecture is flexible, so that other protocols can be "plugged
in" and used.
FTraQ is free software (definition) under
the GNU General Public License (GPL, full text). If you are a
developer, you can get the source code and change it to add, remove
or modify its functionality. If you make the modified version
available to others, you must do so under the terms of the GPL, so
that they can also access and modify the source.
