Maybe you are confusing FTP server with FTP client. All the program you mentioned above are FTP client.
There has never been a GUI FTP client for OS X. But there has always been a CLI (Command Line Interface) FTP client, since the very first version of OS X.
Also FTP server is still there. It has no more System Preferences, Sharing option to enable it. But you can enable it by hand in Terminal.
If you are not Terminal addicted, I'd like to add a couple of programs to your list
FileZilla free open source client
Cyberduck free open source clientiMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), iMac12,1

Of course I listed FTP clients (and these are are GUI apps, where you got the info that there has never been one I have no idea). I said "How to access" not "How to get" FTP servers. I also only listed clients on the Mac App Store.

You mean the Finder itself.
The only limit with the Finder is that the mounted FTP volume is accessible read only. That behavior never changed since the introduction of the first version of OS X and is still valid in Mountain Lion.iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), iMac12,1
