A major new version of Cyberduck is now available, with a plethora of new features and bugfixes but most promimently support for Google Storage [1] and file versioning in Amazon S3.

Among the newest additions is also the integration of Access Control List (ACL) editing for S3 and Google Storage in Cyberduck. This allows the definition of fine grained permissions to be granted to different individual users. Google Storage allows the use of email address registered with Google Accounts as grant identifiers. Using Cyberduck, one can limit access to files stored in Google Storage selectively to anyone who has an email address registered with Google. Access is granted only when logged in using a Google Account and authenticated against the ACL. This makes secure sharing of potentially big files with collaborators a snap.

File versioning support for S3 is now available in a most user friendly way. Choosing to show hidden files in the browser also displays all revisions, allowing to revert back to a previous version making it current. Versioning can be enabled per bucket in the S3 tab of the Browser Info panel. Additional support to selectively enable S3 Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Delete per bucket in Cyberduck, secures files from deletion by requesting a one-time passcode from a hardware token.

For users migrating to Cyberduck from third-party software, bookmarks of various other FTP clients can now be imported.

For security improvements, users are now warned when opening an unsecure connection to a server transmitting user credentials in plaintext. A prompt to switch to a secured connection if the FTP server supports SSL/TLS is displayed.
