Default Indication of newly added folders

Hello.

Sorry if this has already been addressed but i wasn't really sure what to search for to check if already asked.
IF already asked, i would be happy if someone could link to it.

This is a tiny and maybe somewhat insignificant feature, but one i loved to have which i haven't seen in other FTP clients.

I work with tons of different files and run a small backup FTP for myself and a few friends.
I sort files in folders with version/date indication. When i upload a new version of something, i used to have a green + showing after the transfer and re-listing. The green + indicated newly added files or folders so i could easily scroll down and delete the older version folder or file without reading much, just looking for the green mark.

In v5 i don't seem to have that tiny feature and it buggers me a bit. I keep both v4 and v5 installed so i can use v4 for my backup server and v5 for webservers etc. that i work with.

I hope this lot made sense. If not i can try to make a few screenshots.

Thanks in advance for reading this.

- B.J.

The green + on a folder means that this folder has been cached.

It does not mean anything about newly added files or folders.

The green + works exactly the same way in v5 as well so your results should be identical.

I see. However it doesn't appear to work the same. Hence why i thought it indicated a new item.
When i transfer a new folder in v4 it has a green + after the list refresh that follows a transfer.
In v5 it doesn't show any green + at all.

Anyway, thanks for replying. If the feature isn't what i though, i guess i can't complain.
I'll just keep the last v4 installer handy for sorting out the server.

I tested v4 and v5 and I see what you're talking about, this is actually a bug in v4.. it shows that the folder is cached when in fact its not.

Oh. A useful bug then. At least to me. While I'd love to have an indication of new content, I'm at least glad that you see what i meant.
