- backing up from CloudFiles should now work (thanks to Savvas for the bug report!);
- temporary files used in backups were being left in the user's temp directory if a backup failed - these are now removed.

- native SFTP and FTP support, meaning more speed and less (or less durable) bugs;
- support for passive mode in FTP transfers;
- version number in the About dialog;
- lots of internal rearchitecting to allow new features;
- removed .enc extension for encrypted files, and fixed a bug with decrypting from local files.

Something that was left out of the help: Bonkey records all the details of previous backups (and backup attempts) for each backup group. Open the backup group and double click on any of the entries in the history table for the following information:
- a list of the files included in the backup
- the size of the backup and of each folder and file within it
- whether they were transferred or skipped
- whether the transfer was successful
- detailed error messages if a transfer was unsuccessful

If you are using version 1.6 or higher of the Java runtime and want to backup an SQL Server database, you will need to use the most recent version of the JDBC library (available on the same page). When downloaded, this is named sqljdbc4.jar. Rename it to sqljdbc.jar and then follow the instructions as before.
