A new update to libUrl is available at the url below:
Please note that Starter Kit users won't be able to apply these updates.
Version 1.0.8b1 adds a new function (libUrlFtpCommand) that lets you
send any ftp command to an ftp server. This is a potentially powerful
feature, allowing you for example to chmod on files. But it requires
you know about ftp commands and responses to use effectively.
This version also includes the following two new features that were
included with 1.0.8a1.
1. A callback feature that lets you get the status of
downloads/uploads. It is similar in some ways to the current
urlStatus function, but it will work with blocking calls such as "get
url". This makes it possible to report download/upload progress for
these blocking calls. It should also make it easier to set up
something such as a url status panel once, and then have it work
automatically for all uploads and downloads without any further
2. A way to switch the way that ftp directory listings are returned.
You can have libUrl use the conventional LIST command (the default)
which for most servers returns the conventional Unix-style directory
listings. Or you can switch to the NLST comand which returns a list
of file names only.
Details of the features are on the website.
In addition, some changes have been added to the socket opening
routines which should make libUrl more reliable at returning error
messages when sockets fail to open.
