 Fixed Bugs:
-o VFS-348:  Update the version of commons-net. Thanks to Stefan Bodewig. 
-o VFS-230:  Documented FileSystem capabilities on the web site. 
-o VFS-337:  AbstractFileObject and classes that extend from it use AbstractFileName in the
constructor and in
-        the createFile method. 
-o VFS-245:  AbstractFileName is not immutable as it should be. equals(), hashcode() and compareTo()
have been modified
-        to return the same results regardless of whether the FileType is changed. 
-o VFS-334:  DefaultFileSystemConfigBuilder.getConfigClass() returns DefaultFileSystemConfigBuilder.class
which is not a FileSystem Thanks to sebb. 
-o VFS-305:  Add encoding option to FTP provider. Thanks to Tom. 
-o VFS-315:  Fix potential NullPointerException if the DavProperty is null or contains null
values. Thanks to David Hausladen. 
-o VFS-316:  Add option for preemptive authentication for HTTP based protocols. Thanks to
David Hausladen. 
-o VFS-322:  Allow tar files that contain files over 2GB in size. Thanks to Curtis Boyden.

-o VFS-324:  Clear the cache in RamFileSystem and the children in RamFileData. Thanks to sebb.

-o VFS-319:  Typo in FtpsFileSystemConfigBuilder.setFtpsType Thanks to sebb. 
-o VFS-227:  InputStream and RandomAccessContent memory leak in FileContentThreadData Thanks
to Sergey Vladimirov. 
-o VFS-259:  Http and Webdav FIleContentInfoFactory: undress to AbstractFileObject before
casting Thanks to Marek Zawirski. 
-o VFS-261:  WebDAV upload corrupts binary files Thanks to Simon Olofsson. 
-o VFS-276:  add ProviderTestConfig.getDefaultFileSystemManager() method Thanks to Vince Bonfanti.

-o VFS-282:  SftpFileProvider and SftpFileSystemConfigBuilder can't change ssh authentication
methods Thanks to Alexey. 
-o VFS-269:  HttpFileObject: unsupported content over 2GB length Thanks to Marek Zawirski.

-o VFS-287:  LocalFileName objects are not released from AbstractFileSystem.listenerMap when
all listeners are removed. Thanks to Mircea-Eugen Ionica. 
-o VFS-216:  The FTP Configuration includes an option to set a timeout for the data connection,
but not for the socket
-        timeout. This is a problem, as idle sockets can cause your download to hang forever
and never timeout. Thanks to Reetu Mutti. 
-o VFS-289:  FTP connection is not released If exception is thrown out of FtpFileObject.doGetOutputStream().
Thanks to Kirill Safonov. 
-o VFS-286:  SftpFileObject.doListChildrenResolved() changes the working dir before doing call.

+o VFS-557:  [webdav][test] Create WebDav test directory in target/test. Avoid creating core/jackrabbit/tmp.
+            Logfiles of Jackrabbit are preserved when -DWebdavProviderTestCase.Debug=true
is specified.
+o VFS-558:  Make moveTo() and getParent() work with CacheStrategy.ON_CALL.
+            In case of FTP Provider it would lead otherwise to an UnsupportedOperationException.
+o           [sandbox] RACRandomAccessFile is now in org.apache.commons.vfs2.util package
(so sandbox has only one overlapping package).
+o VFS-552:  [sandbox] include vfs-providers.xml in JAR for dynamic registration of mime and
smb providers.
+o VFS-551:  Javadoc: make it clear that DefaultCryptor is only an obfuscation function. Thanks

+o VFS-338:  [Local][Tests] Avoid IndexOutOfBoundsException when validating local file URIs.
Thanks to Daniel R..
+o VFS-489:  [tests] ProviderWriteTests#testListener does not fail cleanly. Thanks to Bernd
+o VFS-486:  DefaultFileMonitor sleeps for twice the specified delay when checkPerRun >
0. Thanks to Sam Haldane.
+o VFS-482:  Wrong assertion messages in RAM provider test case.
+o VFS-460:  Dependency to commons-compress set as optional.
+o VFS-464:  StaticUserAuthenticator should return only requested authentication data.
+o VFS-461:  [FTP/FTPS] ConfigBuilder does not consider system properties for the value of
SoTimeout and Encoding.
+o VFS-458:  [FTPS] Provider missed functionality and bug fixes already available for the
