Hi Raymond,

I do not think so (at least I've not included a specific fix for that), but you never know...

Anyway, I'm currently working on a big refactoring on SofaFTP in order to make it more versatile (STAT and MDTM commands not required anymore, support for more systems servers). Had to do that because I changed my internet provider and the modern internet box / NAS I received does not support these commands.

For thoese interested in details, the problem with "update only" on an FTP server that has no STAT or MDTM, is that the output you get from a LIST command is designed for human but not for machines, so it can be any format (DOS, Unix, etc...). Luckily, I just found some old sources doing that clever parsing here: http://cr.yp.to/ftpparse.html. That code has been created by D.J Bernstein, a famous cryptologist and devlopper, and it seems to do the job so far :)
