Default UTF8 support

hello,

that would be great
more and more ftps use utf8 and it wont display correctly in flashfxp which can be pretty annoying
it's definetly a feature that's missing, smartftp and cuteftp support it, but i hate to have to use these


that's all
keep up the good job

um, unless i'm mistaken, by default ftp is sending info as "plain text" (not utf8), and ftp client have to specificly request for info to be sent as utf8
so i'm not sure why would you be having such problems since ffxp doesn't even request utf8

i dont think so...
the files are stored on the server with utf8.... so basicaly when i try to download some chars wont go through and it will answer "file not found" not to consider that i cant read the filenames:/
