Release Notes: This release corrects a number of bugs with the Makefile and configuration parsing. The Makefile now respects the --prefix setting and is able to install Bftpd to uncommon locations, such as parts of the filesystem without /etc, /usr, or sbin directories. Configuration parsing is now more tolerant of unexpected spaces and end-of-line comments, and should load faster than before.

Release Notes: This version includes a fix for dealing with named pipes. Previously performing a directory listing on a directory that included a named pipe would cause Bftpd's connect to stall. This release provides a work-around so that directory listings complete cleanly.

  •  11 Jul 2011 02:58

Release Notes: This release fixes a potential bug in the way Bftpd binds to a socket.

  •  06 Mar 2011 19:02

Release Notes: This release adds a new value to the SHOW_HIDDEN_FILES variable. Hidden files can now be shown to the client always, upon request, or never.

  •  23 Sep 2010 17:29

Release Notes: A configuration default which could allow anonymous users to have more access to the server than intended was fixed. By default, Bftpd now blocks anonymous logins, so any access must be turned on by the admin.

Release Notes: This update does not introduce any code changes. The release includes some corrections to the documentation. It also adds a Slovak translation of the documentation.

  •  02 Jun 2010 18:07

Release Notes: This release fixes a security issue with anonymous logins. Previously, anonymous accounts were not properly performing chroot, isolating the user. There is also a fix for an issue where the server's log file would get erased on Ubuntu systems when the operating system was rebooted.

Release Notes: This release fixes anonymous logins, which were broken a few releases back. Anonymous logins are now blocked by default, but can be easily enabled in the configuration file. Support has been added for the "-a" flag in the LIST command, allowing users to see hidden files. The search function has been fixed so that symbolic links are displayed properly, even if the link is broken. Some fixes were applied, making sure the server can always read user-specific settings from the config file. When several connections are dropped at once, the server now cleans up all child processes, avoiding zombies.

  •  28 Mar 2010 14:11

Release Notes: This release fixes an issue where the same error code was returned regardless of whether the client was trying to delete a write-protected directory or a non-empty directory. The proper codes are now returned, making sure the FTP client will be able to take the proper action. Some code clean-up was done to clear up compiler warnings from gcc 4.4.1.

Release Notes: Bandwidth monitoring and logging has been added. Better support for UTF-8 character encoding has been added.
