CloudBerry Explorer: Introducing Upload Rules

As always we are adding features to make it easier for our customers to use the functionality to offer the most compelling Amazon S3, CloudFront and IAM client on Windows platform.

With this release, we are adding the feature that will make it easier to apply predefined settings to the objects.  Now you can optionally enable encryption and compression for selected buckets only.  You can also configure the predefined set of HTTP headers for every upload. this is useful if, for instance, you use one of the buckets for data backup while other buckets for serving the files on a website.

To enable Upload Rules to select Upload Rules from the Tools menu.
