Hello, ProFTPD community. The ProFTPD Project team is pleased to
announce that the first release candidate for ProFTPD 1.3.1 is now
available for public consumption.

You can download 1.3.1rc1, including PGP signatures and MD5 sums,
from any of the proftpd mirrors. Mirrors are available via FTP as:

ftp..proftpd.org

(example: ftp.nl.proftpd.org). Not all countries have mirrors; however
you should select one that is geographically close to you.

Alternatively, you can download proftpd from the main site:

ftp://ftp.proftpd.org/distrib/source

RPMs, once available, will be placed here:

ftp://ftp.proftpd.org/distrib/packages/RPMS

The 1.3.1rc1 release includes major new features and numerous bugfixes,
including:

+ Support for UTF8 and translated response messages (NLS support)

+ New configuration directives:
DisplayChdir
DisplayFileTransfer
UseIPv6
UseUTF8

+ Deprecated configuration directives:
DisplayFirstChdir
The DisplayFirstChdir directive is deprecated; sites should use
the new DisplayChdir directive (which allows for files to
be displayed on every directory change, rather than just the
first time for a directory change).

HiddenStor
The HiddenStor directive is deprecated; simply use HiddenStores
instead.

SQLHomedirOnDemand
The SQLHomedirOnDemand directive will be removed in future
releases; use the CreateHome directive instead.

+ New modules:
mod_ban, a module handling dynamic client "black lists"
See doc/contrib/mod_ban.html

+ Enhanced modules:
The mod_tls module can now make use of cryptographic accelerator
cards with the new TLSCryptoDevice directive. It can also use
a program for obtaining certificate passphrases via the new
TLSPassPhraseProvider directive.

+ Documentation

New Howtos:
doc/howto/CreateHome.html

Please read the included NEWS, RELEASE_NOTES, and ChangeLog files for
the full details.
