Changes from 2.0.18rc1 to 2.0.18
* Added support for the FSP protocol (
* SSH2: Fixed segfault that could occur when renaming a file (bug introduced
in 2.0.18rc1)
* SSH2: Fixes for parsing the directory listing from the commercial SSH server
* FTP: added pasv_behind_router option. If this is enabled, then the IP
address that is in the PASV response will be ignored. Instead the IP
address of the remote host will be used
* FTP: removed the quote filename functionality in the SITE CHMOD and
SITE UTIME commands
* Chmod: Fixes for setting the group execute bit (bug introduced in 2.0.18rc1)
* Fixes so that the text port will prompt you for your password when a URL is
entered on the command line
* In the text port, convert the string from UTF8 to the users' current locale
before it is displayed
* Fixes for when the host system does not have getaddrinfo() (bug introduced in

(fixes CAN-2005-0372)
* FreeBSD and HP/UX fixes
* GNOME HIG fixes
* Many other small changes and improvements. See the ChangeLog file in the
distribution for a detailed list of changes.
* Updated language translations (cs de en_CA en_GB es hu nl zh_CN)
Changes from 2.0.17 to 2.0.18rc1
* SSH2: Improved the login code. You no longer need to specify in gFTP the
path to the sftp-server binary on the remote server. It will now just work
out of the box for most sites. Also, if the SSH binary is asking a
question, this question will be relayed back through the gFTP user interface
so the user can answer it appropriately.
* SSH2: Added support for RSA SecurID passwords
* FTP, SSH2: Added support for preserving the file date/time
* FTP: Fixed IPv6 connection problem
* More 64 bit cleanups
* More largefile fixes
* Fixed detection of SIGCHLD signal when viewing/editing files

* Save the state of the host, user and port fields in the toolbar
* Fixed compiler errors on OpenBSD and HPUX
* Many other small changes and improvements. See the ChangeLog file in the
distribution for a detailed list of changes.
* New language translations and updates (bg cs en_CA en_GB es fi he hu ja nl pa
pt_BR ru sq)
Changes from 2.0.16 to 2.0.17
* Separated out more of the UI independent code in the GTK+ and Text ports and
created a user interface common repository. Cleaned up some of the existing
GTK+ code. The GTK+ port can now be controlled from a command line interface
in the GUI. There is an option you have to enable in the options dialog for
this. (enable manual commands in GUI)
* Added support for the FTPS protocol. The control connection is the only
one encrypted at the moment.
* When viewing/editing a file, the temporary file that is created is created
with the same extension as the remote file so that syntax highlighting works
* File transfers can be resumed/skipped/overwritten in the text port and
whenever files are dropped on gftp in the GTK+ port.
* FTP: Added support for MVS directory listings
* FTP: Fix for FXP transfers
* SSH2: fix for resuming uploads
* Added option to show the transfer status in the title bar.
* Added option to disable IPV6 support.
* Fixed the wrong date being displayed when a file was modified last year
* 64 bit cleanups. This also fixed a SSH segfault that was happening on
* Look for the .gmo translation files in the proper directory
* If a bookmarked site has it's password saved in the config file, then the
passwords are written out in a scrambled format. This isn't secure, but it'll
prevent someone from casually looking over your shoulder and seeing your
password. I still do not recommend saving your passwords to disk.
* Fix for systems that do not support the %'ld format argument
* The startup directory option is now expanded so that an option like
~/src can be specified
* New language translations and updates (ca cs de ga hr hu nl pt_BR sr sr@Latn
ta th)
* Many other small changes and improvements. See the ChangeLog file in the
distribution for a detailed list of changes.
Changes from 2.0.15 to 2.0.16
* Fixed bug where the local directory listing was not updated when
connecting to a bookmarked site.
* Fix for Novell directory paths (//share/directory)
* Local: If there is a dangling symlink in the local directory, not all of
the files were being shown.
* FTP: Fixed rename bug
* FTP: Fixed editing the FTP proxy config in the FTP port.
* FTP: Better error checking when establishing the data connection.
* FTP: File transfers are aborted correctly. You will not lose your connection
to the remote server.
* FTP: Ascii file transfers fix.
* HTTP: Fixed parsing some chunked file transfers.
* SSH: Fixed crash when deleting subdirectories.
* When editing remote files, and if the current directory is changed on the
remote server, make sure the file is still uploaded to the proper location.
* When editing a remote file, if the connection to the remote server times out,
immediately reconnect when the file is uploaded.
* DND cleanups
* If the source is compiled with -D_GNU_SOURCE, then use the current style
for the current locale to separate numbers.
* In some cases, if the remote_charset is defined for the remote host, convert
the current string from UTF8 to the users remote character set.
* Fixed Cray directory directory listings. Also, some UNIX directory listings
that had files with multiple spaces were being mistaken for Cray directory
* The README/FAQ is now stored in Docbook format.
* New language translations and updates (az bn el es hr it ja nl no pt ro sk sr)
* Many other small changes and improvements. See the ChangeLog file in the
distribution for a detailed list of changes.
Changes from 2.0.15rc2 to 2.0.15
* FTP: Fixes for selecting ASCII/Binary transfers
* Fixed crash when deleting files in the GTK+ port
* Fixed parsing directory listings that have timestamps that are not in the
current locale.
* More largefile support fixes.
* Updated translations (cs, pl, sr, sr@Latn, sv)
Changes from 2.0.15rc1 to 2.0.15rc2
* Largefile (>2.1GB) fixes.
* When resuming files, look up the right option name. gFTP would bail out
whenever it couldn't look up the right option.
* Fixes to the permissions of files when they are first transfered. New files
are created with the mode 0644 & ~umask.
* Change to the proper local directory when one was enabled with a bookmark.
* Fixed crash that would occur in the options dialog when you hit Apply, then
* Fixed possible division by 0 when transfering a file.
* Fixed double free of a gftp_file structure member (utf8_file). This was not
present in 2.0.14.
* FreeBSD PTY and password prompt fixes.
* Detect write errors properly.
* Added --info argument to the command line. This will give some information
about how gFTP was compiled.
Changes from 2.0.14 to 2.0.15rc1
* I18N improvements in GTK+ 2.0 port. If the remote server is not returning
output in UTF8, it will first attempt to convert it from the local character
set and if that fails it will try the character sets listed in the
remote_charsets option.
* Added an improved internal configuration interface. You can now override just
about any option in the bookmarks dialog for a particular site.
* Each protocol that gFTP supports is now completely self contained in it's own
file. So, if gFTP doesn't support your favorite protocol, it should be pretty
easy to add support
* When you attempt to connect to a site and there is a fatal error, gFTP will
abort properly and no longer keep trying to log back into the server.
* Fixes for transferring files greater than 2.1GB.
* Improved throttling of file transfers.
* Added support to expire cache entries after a particular period of time.
* FTP: Added IPV6 support. gFTP is almost 100% IPV6 compatible. If you are not
using a proxy server, you will not run into any issues. The list of local
networks to not use the proxy server is still currently IPV4 only.
* FTP: Added ability to parse VMS directory listings.
* FTP: The firewall_* options were renamed to ftp_proxy_* for better
consistency with the other protocols.
* SSH2: More informative error messages when the initial connection to the
remote server fails. You should hopefully not see those "Messages size too
big" error messages anymore.
* SSH2: Improved the PTY interface.
* Removed legacy SSH protocol. THe SSH2 protocol is now the only SSH protocol
supported. You had to enable an option in 2.0.14 to be able to use this
* HTTP: Lots of improvements to this protocol.
* Added support for the HTTPS protocol. I added a generic SSL layer to the code
so that other SSL protocols can be easily added.
* The bookmarks and configuration file is now only written if something changed
during this session.
* Build fixes for various platforms
* Lots of cleanups and improvements to the core library. Also lots of bug fixes
throughout the code.
* New language translations and updates (am ar ca cs es fr hu ja mk ms nl pl
pt pt_BR ru sr sr@Latn sv tr uk zh_TW). Thanks to everybody that has
contributed language updates!
Changes from 2.0.14rc1 to 2.0.14

* Don't ask for SSH password in bookmarks if it's disabled in the config file
* Binary/Ascii fixes for ext= lines in the config file
* SSH - if the word WARNING appears in the banner, don't log into the server
* Updated translations: French, German, Polish and Simplified Chinese
