  +* An improved method of handling timestamp granularity differences between 
  +  client and server was added to the <ftp> task.  FTP servers typically
  +  have HH:mm timestamps whereas local filesystems have HH:mm:ss timestamps.
  +  Previously, this required tweaking with the timediffmillis attribute 
  +  which also was used to handle timezone differences.  Now, there is a new 
  +  timestampgranularity attribute.  The default value for get operations is 0
  +  since the user has the more powerful preservelastmodified attribute to work 
  +  with.  Since this is not available on put operations the default value 
  +  adds a minute to the server timestamp in order to account for this,
  +  Scripts which previously used timediffmillis to do this compensation may 
  +  need to be rewritten.  timediffmillis has now been deprecated.
