Hi John,
    After a year of not working on gftp, I have been slowly working on
cleaning up the bugs in GNOME's Bugzilla. I've probably cleaned out 50
entries and I have another 80 to go. This will take me some time to
get done. I'm hoping to be able to get a new version out sometime in
    I created a tarball that contains my latest code. It mostly
contains bug fixes. It can be downloaded at
http://www.gftp.org/gftp-test.tar.bz2. I still have a lot to do before
I can create a release canidate.
    If you sent me a bug report via email, you may want to make sure
that it is listed in GNOME's Bugzilla ( bugs.gnome.org).
