Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT][NET] jakarta-commons/net 1.2 Released
Date Sat, 01 May 2004 18:49:36 GMT
The Jakarta Commons team is pleased to announce the release of version
1.2.0 of the Jakarta Commons/Net component.

Commons/Net is an Internet protocol suite Java library which supports
Finger, Whois, TFTP, Telnet, POP3, FTP, NNTP, SMTP, and some miscellaneous
protocols like Time and Echo as well as BSD R command support.

This release adds, for the first time, autodetection of FTP server type
when retrieving an FTP listing  so that non-unix FTP servers can
automatically provide usable listings with valid dates, etc. Server types
supported in this are Windows NT, OS2, VMS, OS400.  Formerly only unix was
supported in this way.

This enables its automatic use in Ant's FTP task, for example,  for these
server types as well as the original unix.
