Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.0.35
Release     : 1.fc16

Summary     : Lightweight, fast and secure FTP server
Description :
Pure-FTPd is a fast, production-quality, standard-comformant FTP server,
based upon Troll-FTPd. Unlike other popular FTP servers, it has no known
security flaw, it is really trivial to set up and it is especially designed
for modern Linux and FreeBSD kernels (setfsuid, sendfile, capabilities) .
Features include PAM support, IPv6, chroot()ed home directories, virtual
domains, built-in LS, anti-warez system, bandwidth throttling, FXP, bounded
ports for passive downloads, UL/DL ratios, native LDAP and SQL support,
Apache log files and more.
Rebuild switches:
--without ldap     disable ldap support
--without mysql    disable mysql support
--without pgsql    disable postgresql support
--without extauth  disable external authentication
--without tls      disable SSL/TLS

Update Information:

* Version 1.0.35:
 - Improve compatibility with the Intel and Ekopath compilers.
 - Use more paranoid compiler options whenever possible, and preliminary
uncluttering of the autoconf script.
 - Try to cache locale-related data at startup after tzset(), rather
than during a session.
 - Fix quota computation after rename() overwrites an existing file.
Reported by Hiramoto Koujo, thanks!

* Version 1.0.34:
 - Fix safe_write() inverted checks that broke uploads.

* Version 1.0.33:
 - Sync built-in glob(3) code with OpenBSD-current, and remove code we
don't use instead of ifdef'ing it.
 - Repair checkproc() on Linux when support for capabitilies is
compiled in. Reported by Eric Gouyer.
 - Don't read /dev/*random every time we need a value. Just use
arc4random() everywhere and seed it before we possibly chroot().
 - Add support for MFMT, with the same code as SITE UTIME.
 - Support 2-arguments SITE UTIME.
 - LDAP: Add LDAPDefaultHomeDirectory, suggested by Landry Breuil.
 - Add SSL_OP_NO_SSLv3 to SSL options if the list of ciphers is
prefixed by -S: , needed by Brad.
 - Remove the various safe_read() / safe_write() instances and
factorize them in safe_rw.c
 - Call OpenSSL_add_all_algorithms(), suggested by Brad.
 - Mention that WinSCP works fine with Pure-FTPd.
 - On Linux, opening a named pipe that nobody reads with O_WRONLY yields ENXIO.
The workaround is to opens it O_RDWR. So, just do that.
