Yet another listFiles vote. I will implement listFiles()
now. As long as I'm at it I will look at listFiles(FileFilter) and
listFiles(FilenameFilter) but the initial version will undoubtedly be
limited by the wild card support provided by CIFS ('*' and '?'). First, I
will release a beta 4 with just cleanups, no listFiles(), and hopefully a
fix for the exists() problem just to provide something reasonably stable
instead of forcing people to walk the edge. Then I'll try to drop in
the listFiles methods. This will prolong the beta cycle but I think the
listFiles thing is really a bug at this point.


May The Source be with you.
