I'm pleased to announce release 0.5.1 of Python FTP Server library

=== About ===

Python FTP server library provides an high-level portable interface to
easily write asynchronous FTP servers with Python.
Based on asyncore framework pyftpdlib is currently the most complete
RFC-959 FTP server implementation available for Python programming

=== Major enhancements ===

This new version, aside from fixing some bugs, includes the following
major enhancements:

 * A new script implementing FTPS (FTP over SSL/TLS) has been added in
the demo directory.

 * File transfers are now 40% faster thanks to the re-dimensioned
application buffer sizes.

 * ASCII data transfers on Windows are now 200% faster.

 * Preliminary support for SITE command has been added.

 * Two new callback methods to handle "file received" and "file sent"
events have been added.

A complete list of changes including enhancements and bug fixes is
