Update Feature

It would be nice to have an update feature, that
updates all changed files in a directory (recursing
through subdirectories) without looking at the server

Changes should be detected since last update by local
file time stamps. This, of course, means to save some
log file of previous updates. Thus this reature may
require a little bit of work.

To make everything run properly, there must be a file
filter to exclude or include files from updating.

Reason: Looking up each file stamp on the server is
much slower. For large directories, looking at the
local file stamp would speed up things considerably.

Even if you do not want to remember previous updates
and stick with the server file stamp, an "update"
button for directories using file filters would be a
good idea, I think.

Synchronization features and filters are planned for
FileZilla 3.
However they'll use the remote timestamps for comparison,
the directory listings would be retrieved in any case. Since
the listings are cached, no additional slowdown will be noticed.

Anyhow, duplicate of a few other feature requests, thus closed.
