Not well supporting Chinese characters

Here is an apparent bug. When logging into a Chinese FTP site and entering a folder named in Chinese characters, the "Remote site" does not display the path normally. In more detail, it always does not recognize Chinese characters, and thus shows some confusing ones. I believe that this software will be more attractive if this bug is fixed.

FileZilla supports Chinese characters just fine by using UTF-8 as character encoding.

Unfortunately many servers do not support UTF-8. Note that using any encoding other than UTF-8 is in violation to the FTP specifications. On a server not capable of UTF-8 you should not use any non-ASCII characters.

Read for details.
