Old feature back: the -u switch

in filezilla 2 we could schedule an upload task and have filezilla execute it then close its self with ease. The reasons why it was removed baffle me.

Its a rather effortless feature that would make filezillas, threading, comaprison and stability all the more useful. There is nothing that would compare to filezilla for such tasks if it had this feature. I've spent over 40h looking for a good incremental ftp backup tool. So far the best one is filezilla, even without automated backups.

Programs like bonkey take ages to compare files and they do not thread uploads. It takes bonkey 24 minutes to update a folder without changes, while filezilla takes only 21 seconds with threading enabled.

This is a minute change that goes a long way and would make a world of difference. If you refuse it please tell me something that can do threaded incremental updates to folders through FTP and takes command line options.

This will not be implemented in FileZilla 3.x

The primary reason is because that feature allowed the misuse of FileZilla for automated tasks. FileZilla is designed for interactive GUI usage.

You want to use a dedicated commandline client for automated tasks.
