ftputil 2.4.1 is now available from
http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/download .

Changes since version 2.4

Several bugs were fixed:

- On Windows, some accesses to the stat cache caused it to become
  inconsistent, which could also trigger exceptions (report and patch
  by Peter Stirling).

- In ftputil 2.4, the use of ``super`` in the exception base class
  caused ftputil to fail on Python <2.5 (reported by Nicola Murino).
  ftputil is supposed to run with Python 2.3+.

- The conversion of 12-hour clock times to 24-hour clock in the MS
  format parser was wrong for 12 AM and 12 PM.

Upgrading is strongly recommended.

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.
