+* The :func:`shutil.copytree` function has two new options
+ * ignore_dangling_symlinks: when symlinks=false (meaning that the function
+ copy the file pointed by the symlink, not the symlink itself)
+ this option will silent the error thrown if the file doesn't exists.
+ * copy_function: a callable that will be used to copy files.
+ :func:`shutil.copy2` is used by default.
