A couple of my favorite features of Transmit 3.5 are:
- It’s now a Universal application which means that it will chirp on my MacBook Pro
- You can create “droplets” from a Transmit favorite or a folder in an open connection
- You can edit any type of file in any local application
- Right-clicking a remote file brings up a Finder-like list of recommended editors
Click through the see the ridiculous laundry list of changes in the new version.
Transmit will set you back US$30 for a license, or US$18 to upgrade from 2.0, upgrades from 3.0 are free.
