MediaFire Express 0.12.0 Update

We are pleased to announce the release of MediaFire Express 0.12.0.

New functionality has been added!  One of the most visible changes in this new release is that the status panel (i.e., the small window with a progress bar that appears in the corner of the screen while uploads are underway) can now show pending uploads.  The user can now cancel pending uploads shown in the status panel.

Now users can control whether Express will follow a shortcut (on Windows) or symbolic links (on Macintosh and Linux) when conducting an upload.  For example, if following shortcuts is enabled and the user uploads a folder containing a shortcut then Express will uploaded the file referenced by the shortcut, even if this file is not located in or under the uploaded folder.  If following shortcuts and symbolic links is disabled then the files referenced by shortcuts and symbolic links will be ignored.

Now users can control whether Express will ignore hidden files and folders during an upload.  If so configured, Express will not upload hidden files and folders.

Now Express will use system proxy settings so that it can access the Internet even the network is isolated from the Internet by a proxy server.

    First thing first, desktop application is blessing from heaven! Uploading via browsers are untrustworthy since browser colud crash anytime! (No use changing browser. All of it crash!)

    But sometime when I upload, when it finish the progress bar turn back and start upload from the begining again. The last time this happen I let it upload again after it finish and restart, when it finish it just start all over again! No file being upload when check in file manager!
