Release Notes: This release adds fixes for string manipulation, forces password checking for better Web browser compatibility, and adds two new configuration options for improved flexibility.

Release Notes: This release reverses the policy of using a variable transfer buffer size. The transfer buffer size now stays static, which makes transfers faster. Variable buffers is an option in the configuration file. Bftpd now shows hidden files on the system if the configuration file option show_hidden_files is set to "yes".

Release Notes: This release comes with two new features. The first is the implementation of a new site command, "site md5 filename", which gives the client an MD5 sum fingerprint of a file on the server. The other feature is a configuration file option which allows the admin to decide whether the transfer buffer changes in size as more or fewer clients connect.

Release Notes: It is now possible to authenticate users while running the server in single user mode. Authentication can be handled through a text file, which is set up through the config options. This is disabled by default for security reasons.
