WebDrive version 1.3 has been released!

Just recently a new version of this ultra-clever Internet utility named
"WebDrive" has been released: Version 1.3 is out now.

This unique software does nothing less then to enable ZTreeWin to work
as an FTP client!

This is done by mapping any FTP-site to appear as a local (respectively
network) drive under Win95.

Now there are even more smart tricks you can perfom with ZTree and WebDrive:

When on a mapped FTP-site/drive, use ZTree's eXecute command and type: "WDLS"
This will perform a UNIX-style LIST command ("ls -l") on the respective

Or you can highlight any FTP-file and change its (UNIX-) permissions,
by using ZTree's Alt-'B'atch command, entering for example:

wdchmod u=rwx,g+rw,o-w %1
or something like this:

wdchmod 777 %1

Very handy!

(Note that all this examples require the WebDrive files "WDLS" and "WDCHMOD" to be in a global path directory (e.g. "C:\Windows\Command")).

AND you can very easily map a previously configured FTP-site without even leaving ZTree!
Just make an entry like the following in your ZTree application menu:

@C:\PROGRAMS\WebDrive\WebDrive.exe "Name_of_connection"

Really cool!
Highly recommended!

Feel free to post any questions or comments on it here!
