ftputil 2.8 is now available from
http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/download .

Changes since version 2.7.1

- After some discussion [1] I decided to remove the auto-probing
  before using the `-a` option for `LIST` [2] to find "hidden" files
  and directories. The option is used by default now, without probing
  for exceptions. If this new approach causes problems, you can use

    ftp_host = ftputil.FTPHost(...)
    ftp_host.use_list_a_option = False

- Several bugs were fixed. [3]

- The mailing lists have moved to

    ftputil at lists.sschwarzer.net
    ftputil-tickets at lists.sschwarzer.net

  The ftputil list [4] requires a subscription before you can post.
  The ftputil-tickets list [5] is read-only anyway.

  Thanks to Codespeak.net for having hosted the lists for almost
  ten years. :-)

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.
