    certificate file when using TLS.
    - Support for TCP_FASTOPEN added on Linux.
    - The LDAP configuration file now allows a default gid without also
    defining a default uid.
    - Retry if SSL_shutdown() returns -1 and SSL_ERROR_WANT_(READ|WRITE)

    - Support for braces expansion in directory listings has been disabled.

    - When an upload gets renamed (--autorename), send the new name to the
    uploadscript instead of the
    original one.

    virtual quota.
    - After an atomic resumed upload, don't append the previous file size to

    - Refuse empty passwords in LDAP bind mode.
    - LDAP authentication through binding is now possible in addition to
    - Almost a complete rewrite of the upload, download and TLS code for more
