This version brings significant memory savings on macOS. Refer to the full changelog. Important: Due to a bug in version 1.7.1–1.8.2 you will have to manually update to the latest version by downloading the latest version from mountainduck.io.
Mountain Duck now ships with a Finder Extension for Mac and a File Explorer Extension on Windows. This allows us to have a context menu in the file explorer. Currently it includes options to copy URLs of files selected on the mounted remove volume and open a Terminal session to the selected working directory when connected through SSH.
Mountain Duck gained the ability to mount remote volumes as read-only and forbids writes to the remote server on the operating system level. This will pose most useful to users mounting productive environments and will want to make sure nothing is written to the server but files are only readable.
We shipped Mountain Duck for Mac & Windows after fixing tons of issues during our private beta to the Mac App Store and for sale from our website! We are excited to get the first positive reviews from users:
(…) The app helps web developers have a less crowded workspace and is sure to make the overall web development a bit easier and faster. –– Softpedia review of Mountain Duck for Windows
(…) All in all, Mountain Duck is a handy utility that could prove to be invaluable for users who commonly manage multiple remote storage servers, as it enables you to mount them as local volumes, and browse their contents or transfer files using Finder. –– Softpedia reviewing Mountain Duck for Mac
Great software. Saves a lot of time. Perhaps you can tell Apple how to implement ftp functionality into Finder as for the last 15 years they seem not to be able to do that. –– MacUpdate comment on Mountain Duck for Mac
(…) Enter this app. It mounts file shares like SFTP, Sharepoint and even my Amazon cloud storage share just like mapping a network drive. Best of all I can use Finder to navigate through the file structures. (…) –– Mac App Store Review
