    This update to pure-ftpd documents how pam_umask's
    configuration affects the FTP server umask settings.
    Additionally, it replaces GPL parts of the code by those
    released later by upstream under BSD license, resolving a
    licensing issue.

    This update also includes improvements and fixes specific
    to Novell Open Enterprise Server environments that run
    pure-ftpd (bnc#769694):

    * Wait for nwlogin and nwlogout processes to terminate
    before closing the FTP user session (bnc#693805)
    * Fix timeouts in FTP logins due to LDAP subtree search
    for NCP servers from (bnc#725137)
    * Allow backslash characters ("") in pathnames
    * Remote server access fails with full domain names
    * DefaultHomeDirectory causes segfault/disconnect upon
    anonymous login attempt (bnc#759995)
    * "remote_server yes" causes error and failure for
    pure-ftpd AltLog (bnc#779657).
