publish via ssh?

Just purchased the CityDesk Home site edition, and I must say, I am very impressed thus far. One question: you can publish a site via ftp or windows file copy - is it possible to publish the site via ssh?

If not, this would be a very valuable feature in the next version.

Its already on the list!

Just an FYI, for any post publishing action you can always write a small batch script that uses your SSH client to copy the files over, and then add the script to the "Preview Configure" menu.

For example, we use CityDesk to manage the help file for CityDesk, and after generating all the .htm files, you have to run the help compiler on them.  So we just made a small batch script that runs the help compiler on the files, and added that to the drop down menu in the preview dialog (the little menu in the bottom right when its finished publishing a site - the default is to launch with IE, but you can add others).

In the help file, see "Fog Creek CityDesk->The Main Window->Testing in Other Web Browsers"
