I just wanted to say thank you for the new version 2.5!! First of all: it works like a charm :)
And I really love the new sync-root function and multiple files to “Ignore” or “Always upload” option! :)
This is a big time improvement for my workflow and my overall UX experience with your app.
I love your app thus far! I think I can safely stop paying for DeployHQ. :)
I really, really like GitFTP-Deploy, it makes my live a lot easier on shitty web hosts!
