FileZilla server is surely a very powerful and great tool. Congratulation for the excellent work! What is just missing for me to forget about other file-sharing systems is a little integration in Windows in order to make easy directory sharing (The idea behind Weezo for example).
In actual version, to share a directory:
I need to open the FileZilla Server Interface, click on 'groups>Shared Folders>Add', browse the directory, edit an alias and set the rights. I must du that again for every group/user I want this folder to be added to.
In the proposal, to share a directory:
I right click on the folder in the explorer to get the context-menu, I select 'share with FileZillaServer', a dialogue-windows opens up showing in first colomn all the groups/users available in FileZilla, in front of which the access right for this folder are represented as check-boxes. In few clicks in beside every group/users, I can then enable different access to this directory to different users...
The directory is then added (aliased) to the root of every user/group share.
I think this small addition would differentiate FileZilla from the other FTP clients, that are all user-centric, and set it as a new reference for directory-sharing (which is technically not much different, but it just a matter of interfacing).
