Foldersync 0.2 progress

It has been silent for a while now. But I want to ensure everyone that development on Foldersync is still going on.
Some nice additions have already been implement, allot of work is going into improving general usability.

Some of the changes since the 0.1 release:
* Foldersync now remember the size and state of the window when closing the application.
* Selecting the folder to synchronize has gotten a much improved interface. Allowing you to add favourite locations to your bookmarks.
You can see the new folder browser browsing an SFTP server over here : http://users.telenet.be/greenhouse/foldersync/releases/0.2/Screenshot-foldersync.png
* The simulation/synchronization have gotten a overhaul , you can now zoom in on a single folder by clicking it's button on top.

* SFTP support has been largely implemented.
* People have been found to add French/German en Spanish translations when the time comes.
If you want to help out with translating, drop me a e-mail.

What will Foldersync 0.2 be? + Looking for translators.

The biggest change in 0.2 will be support for SCP and SFTP in Foldersync. This will likely be implemented using the SSH2 lib from http://www.ganymed.ethz.ch/ssh2/ (Thnx to them).

I am still looking for translators. Specifically German and French, but any translations are welcome. Contact me!.
