File lists

It would be so nice if the file versions could be included in the two file lists displayed.
Just another feature in this magnificent app.

Best regards

What do you mean by file versions?

In Windows file attributes like 'Date Created', 'Date last Changed' and so on is also included a 'File Version'

In my case I use it for various software applications done in Visual Studio and as I use FileZilla for uploading these files to my FTP server, it would be great help if could have the file version included.

When I right click the header for files on local site I have the option to see File Name, File Size, File type and Last Changed - same for the remote site but here also Permissions and Owner/Group.

(Some of those might be named incorrectly - my FileZilla is in danish)

If these options could include File Version I would appreciate it very much.

Querying this information is very expensive as it requires an extra syscall for each and every file.

I did an exhaustive search of my entire filesystem, not a single file has a "file version", so it would also be a fringe feature.

As for files on the server, the protocols don't even support querying this kind of information.

In for instance the windows folder all .exe and .dll files have a file version info.

And I can see that FPT protocol only have ftp_mdtm for last modified date and ftp_size available according my wish.

So controlling the versions remains as a dicipline 8)
