ftputil 3.4 is now available from
http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/download .

Changes since version 3.3.1

- Several bugs were fixed [1-5].

- Added deprecation warnings for backward incompatibilities in the
  upcoming ftputil 4.0.0.

Important note

The next version of ftputil will be 4.0.0 (apart from small fixes in
possible 3.4.x versions).

ftputil 4.0.0 will make some backward-incompatible changes:

- Support for Python 2 will be removed. There are several reasons for
  this, which are explained in [6].

- The flag `use_list_a_option` will be set to `False` by default. This
  option was intended to make life easier for users, but turned out to
  be problematic (see [7]).

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.

See the documentation for details:


ftputil is open source software, released under the revised BSD
license (see http://opensource.org/licenses/BSD-3-Clause ).
