SFTP support?

As far as I've seen in the shareware version of PenguiNet, there's no SFTP support? Is this in the paid version? If not, is it planned? I do see that PenguiNet has SCP support, and yes it may be faster, but I believe SFTP should at least be an option. SFTP supports many more file operations then SCP does, and it has other various advantages that would be nice to see in PenguiNet!

    Daniel, We’re glad somebody’s mentioned it! We’ve been planning to add SFTP support for a long time, but it hasn’t made it on to the list yet because nobody’s been asking for it. It won’t be in the next version, but hopefully it will have enough votes to be in the version after that.

        Personally I like the idea of sticking to one thing, and penguinet is awesome at being a tabbed ssh client. There are many sftp clients (filezilla) which do a great job at file transferring. No reason to reinvent the wheel when more than one free / open source solution is already doing it great.

        A tabbed ssh client that is free or doesnt cost a fortune however...
