Net::SFTP is a Ruby library for transferring files using the SFTP (Secure FTP) protocol over SSH. This is a maintenance release consisting of only two changes. First, you no longer need to explicitly call the #connect method. It is called automatically as needed. Second, this release has an explicit (RubyGems) dependency on Net::SSH versions less than 1.99.0. This should pave the way for making smoother the eventual release of Net::SSH v2 (which is not backwards compatible and would otherwise break existing installations of Net::SFTP 1.x).
All users of Net::SFTP are encouraged to upgrade. Using Rubygems, installation is simple:
gem install net-sftp
Alternate source packages (bz2 and zip) may be downloaded from the Net::SSH project page:
