Free: CD Site Change notification utility

Developed for our internal use we would like to share "Notifier 1.0" with you fellow CD users. A utility for automatic email notification on changes to CityDesk-managed websites. Connects to your FTP server (of your website), retrieves the citydesk.xml file, checks differences to the last version retrieved, sends emails to recipients with information on changes that occured.

You can specify any number of email recipients. Its free, no guarantees, no nothing, no §/&$-ware, no installation/DLLs, no changes to your PC settings - let it run and enjoy . Feedback welcomed at:

Download here:



PS: Ah yes, please do read the included readme file for instructions :-)
