I am pleased to announce that M2Crypto 0.07 snapshot #1 is now available.
This snapshot features the following:

- FTP/TLS as specified in draft-murray-auth-ftp-ssl-07.txt.

    M2Crypto.ftpslib builds on Python's ftplib to provide client-side
    FTP/TLS functionality. (This uses blocking SSL sockets.)

    demo/medusa/ftps_server.py is based on Medusa's ftp_server.py and
    provides FTP/TLS server-side functionality. (This uses non-blocking
    SSL sockets and is currently the best demonstration of how to do so
    in M2Crypto.)

    Both M2Crypto client and server interoperate with each other, as well
    as with Peter Runestig's patched-for-TLS-and-portability OpenBSD FTP
    server and client.

- Improved SSL connect/accept methods. (Some minor API changes to come.)

- Fixed M2Crypto.m2urllib to handle HTTP redirects.

Next up, FTP/TLS for ZServerSSL/Zope!

This FTP/TLS implementation has been generously sponsored by me. ;-)

This snapshot is dedicated to the innocent victims of the 0911 terrorist
attacks on the US.

As usual, the snapshot is available here:


Your feedback is appreciated. Cheers.
