We are pleased to announce stable release 2.1 of Inetutils.

Here are the compressed sources:   (2.6MB)   (1.5MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify inetutils-2.1.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 0664A76954265E8C

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.16.3
  Gnulib v0.1-4745-gc567dcac2


* Noteworthy changes in release 2.1 (2021-07-24) [stable]

** ftp

Disable use of readline when environment variable TERM is unset or set
to "dumb" (caused problems with Emacs AngeFTP on MacOS).  Thanks to
Alex Bochannek for report, debugging and patch.

** ftpd

Our libls now uses gnulib's fts instead of our own custom version.

** telnet

*** Implement --bind (-b).

This is used to bind to a particular local socket, for compatibility
with NetKit's telnet.

** whois

Updated whois servers for .ORG and .IN.

** Various bugs fixes, internal improvements and clean ups.

ChangeLog is now automatically generated from version controlled logs.
Historical information is preserved as ChangeLog.0 and ChangeLog.1.

On behalf of the Inetutils maintainers,
Happy Hacking,
