UberFTP 2.9 uses EPSV and EPRT (see RFC 2428 for details) to support both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. To maintain compatibility from a Globus GridFTP service, use the configuration options epsv_ip 1 and epsv_match 1 for the PI (frontend process) of that service if its PI(s) and DTP(s) (backend process(es)) are located on different hosts.

Errata advisory

Unfortunately an "issue" with the cat functionality of UberFTP 2.9 (though already in version 2.8) went unnoticed until after the UberFTP 2.9 sources reached EPEL/Fedora and was only detected during functional testing of the resulting RPM packages.

UberFTP adds an UNIX newline to the output for both text and binary files in ASCII and binary transfer modes. This makes using the output in a pipeline - for example to hash its contents - at least irritating if you aren't aware of that. This is only relevant for non-interactive use.
