No

My private key is not supported by the ftp plugin, the 1.0.3 or the trunk fails with it.
It says
14:03:43 [jEdit Worker #3] [error] ListDirectoryBrowserTask: java.io.IOException: com.jcraft.jsch.JSchException: The cipher 'aes256-cbc' is required, but it is not available.

The key was generated with puttygen

    oh actually, that error seems to be related to you missing the JCE strong encryption package.
    My guess is that if you install JCE unlimited strength encryption into your JRE, this will be resolved, but there is nothing that can be done from the FTP plugin. See Chapter 1 of the FTP documentation for the link to JCE unlimited encryption.
