Option to upload with temporary filename

An option to upload with temporary name and rename file after transfer is complete. This can be enabled using the following hidden preference. Use

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck queue.upload.file.temporary true

to enable.

To specify a different temporary filename pattern, use

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck queue.upload.file.temporary.format "'{0}-{1}'"

where {0} is the original filename and {1} is a random UUID. The default setting uses a temprary filename of filename-uuid.

An upload that is not complete, will not be renamed. This is useful for uploading to watch folders, that should only pick up a file once the upload is complete.
