ftputil 2.1 is now available from http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/download .
Changes since version 2.0 -------------------------
- Added new methods to the FTPHost class, namely makedirs, walk, rmtree.
- The FTP server directory format ("Unix" vs. "Windows") is now set automatically (thanks to Andrew Ittner for testing it).
- Border cases like inaccessible login directories and whitespace in directory names, are now handled more gracefully (based on input from Valeriy Pogrebitskiy, Tommy Sundström and H. Y. Chu).
- The documentation was updated. It's also on the website at http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/trac/wiki/Documentation .
- A Russian translation of the documentation (currently slightly behind) was contributed by Anton Stepanov. It's also on the website at http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/trac/wiki/RussianDocumentation .
- New website, http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/ with wiki, issue tracker and Subversion repository (thanks to Trac!)
Please enter not only bugs but also enhancement request into the issue tracker!
- The exception hierarchy was changed slightly, which might break client code. See http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/trac/changeset/489 for the change details and the possibly necessary code changes.
- FTPHost.rmdir no longer removes non-empty directories. Use the new method FTPHost.rmtree for this.
What is ftputil? ----------------
ftputil is a high-level FTP client library for the Python programming language. ftputil implements a virtual file system for accessing FTP servers, that is, it can generate file-like objects for remote files. The library supports many functions similar to those in the os, os.path and shutil modules. ftputil has convenience functions for conditional uploads and downloads, and handles FTP clients and servers in different timezones.
ftputil 2.1 is Open Source software, released under the revised BSD license (see http://www.opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php ).
