SFTPPlus Release 3.53.0

Fri 17 January 2020 | general release

We are announcing the latest release of SFTPPlus version 3.53.0.

New Features

  • A new option was defined for the overwrite_rule configuration to allow the file to be skipped and not transferred when destination already has a file with the same name. [client-side][sync] [#4709]
  • The bundled OpenSSL libraries in Windows, Generic Linux, and OS X, were updated to version 1.1.1d. [#5348]

Defect Fixes

We are announcing the latest release of SFTPPlus version 3.52.0.

New Features

  • You can now configure a redirection URL for any requests made to the Let's Encrypt resource HTTP service that do not match ACME validation requests. This can be used to combine the functionality of the HTTP to HTTPS redirection service with that of the Let's Encrypt client validator. [#5352-1]
  • A new HTTP redirect service is available to help redirect HTTP requests to an HTTPS file transfer service. [server-side][http] [#5352]

Defect Fixes
