We use WinSCP as a replacement for Windows' command-line ftp and were surprised to see the "deprecated" and "saved sites" messages when we upgraded from 5.1.5 to 5.15.3. Setting up saved sites to be used as command-line parameters is the most convenient way to access specific machines and directories for interactive command-line users.
Opening session using command-line parameter in scripting is deprecated.
In scripting you should not rely on saved sites, use this command instead:
I can understand not using parameters and saved sites for scripting, since this impacts portability. But both features are invaluable for interactive use and I am concerned that "deprecated" means that one or both of them may be removed in future releases.
Would you please consider retaining our ability to specify a saved site on the command line interactively?
