I am pleased to announce the release of JetS3t version 0.6.0, available now from the JetS3t web site.
This release has been a long time coming (over a year since 0.5.0) and it includes numerous bug fixes and enhancements.
Here are some highlights:
- Support for buckets located in Europe, including the ability to create these buckets in Cockpit
- Administration tasks run much faster by using more communication threads by default
- Support for generating S3 POST upload forms that will allow users to upload data from a web browser directly to your S3 account
- An increased range of encryption algorithms are available thanks to the Bouncy Castle library, and the encryption algorithm is now configurable in Cockpit via the Preferences dialog
- Added a brand new application called CockpitLite, which allows you to provide third parties with mediated access to your S3 account via the Gatekeeper
- Rudimentary bandwidth throttling for uploads
- REST implementation now automatically adjusts for clock differences between a client machine and S3 (ie RequestTimeTooSkewed failures will be a thing of the past)
- The Synchronize application has been made more configurable with a range of new options
- Includes configuration options for requesting specific TCP window size settings from your kernel
Refer to the RELEASE_NOTES.txt document for a full list of enhancements.
