Subject Re: [vfs] New Properties for FtpFileSystemConfigBuilder
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2015 22:02:33 GMT
Hi Bernd,

I wanted to touch base and ask what are my next steps--should I enter a
feature request on the Commons VFS JIRA board?  Also, my app is using
Commons VFS 2.0, so I was hoping to make the fix there and port it to 2.1.
Will there be any more releases in the 2.0 branch?
