Support for the FTP MLST command (RFC 3659) has been added. All important system data are now stored in an ASCII text file, making the conversion of the internal database much less painful. Important numerical configuration values can now be supplied via configure.

SSH logins now work without the periodic timeouts. There is initial support for IPv6, but the code is still untested. Detects when hard link protection is enabled and warns the user about it.
