XCaramba is a cross-platform file transfer program for Mac OS X & Windows. Not just cross-platform, Mac to Mac and PC to PC works just as good. Forget MSN, ICQ etc. they always make it difficult somehow with their protocols and different clients. Forget FTP or any other server to client solution, simply to much hassle. Forget Email, it takes time and has limitations.

When you simply need to transfer files from one computer to another, there simply isn't anything better than XCaramba. The only thing you need to do is, launch XCaramba, open a connection and send. To receive files, you just need to have XCaramba open, that's it! If for any reason the transfer is broken, it will automatically resume when you send/receive again! Send & Receive files as you would copy them between your desktop windows.

Here are some key features of "XCaramba":
Send multiple files & folders.
Send easily by drag & drop.
Send screen captures with one click.
Transferred files can be resumed.
Stay connected with Live Connection.

What's New:
Fixed the issue where an error could occur, when trying to reconnect with a Live Connection Window.
Fixed the issue where the Server would receive unknown messages.
For instance, if XCaramba v1 would try to connect with XCaramba v1.5 an error would occur.
The preferences file is now saved in the current user's home preferences directory.
This fixes an issue where the user could receive a permission denied dialog when saving preferences, because the preferences file would be saved in the same directory as XCaramba.
This also allows users to have their own preferences.
The preferences file is now saved in:
Mac: ~/Library/Preferences/XCaramba 1.5 Preferences
Windows: ~Application DataXCaramba 1.5 Preferences
Automatic send & receive buffer size is now implemented.
When you connect or send, the buffer size will automatically be set.
The send buffer size is set to the optimal value for a connection, but in some cases using high-speed transfers it might work setting a higher value.
Optimized some code.
Minor issues fixed.
Known Minor Issues:
Transfer time is only for the current item, it should be for all items.
There's no way of stopping the file parsing process, when you select/drop a large amount of items.
Test sending with about 100 files, you may run out of memory if you are trying to select more files.

Java 1.4.2 or later.
