Release Schedule

Regular minor releases are based on a rolling update development model at intervals varying between 30 to 60 days.

Critical-bugfix releases are made as soon as a defect is fixed, usually one week after it has been initially discovered and reported.

Security issues have top priority and a fix is released in one or two days.

Features planned for the near future

SFTPPlus Server is under active development and we continue to add features with each new release.

Here is a list of features planned for following releases:

  • Add built-in support for clustering to support resilient configuration.
  • Improve end-user security by supporting multi-factor authentication methods such as Universal 2nd Factor (U2F), One time password protocol (OTP), Time-based One-time Password Algorithm (TOTP) or HMAC-based One-time Password Algorithm (HOTP).
  • Manage SSL certificates from Local Manager
  • Manage multiple hosts from a single Manager GUI
  • Bandwidth and session/requests throttling control per service, per account or per source IP.
  • Implement an SFTP/FTPS to HTTP/HTTPS gateway, which will translate (on the fly) SFTP/FTPS request into HTTP request.
  • On Windows, authenticate local and domain accounts using SSH keys for SFTP and SCP protocols and SSL certificates for FTPS protocols.
  • Add WebDAV support for transferring files over HTTP/HTTPS for both client and server side transfers.
  • Execute client-side file transfer under a different account, other than the account under which the service/daemon is running.
  • Support for connecting to remote servers using a PROXY server.
  • Support for client-side HTTP/HTTPs protocol.

Bug fixes are prioritised according to severity, including the impact on the production environment or security. The most urgent are worked on continuously until fixed and escalated through the support and development team as necessary.
