I have released rsync version 2.6.5pre2 -- the second (and hopefully final)
pre-release for 2.6.5. The 2.6.5 release is primarily a bug-fix release to
squash some annoying bugs that made it into 2.6.4, though a few minor
enhancements did make it in as well.

To read the pre-release man pages:


The changes since 2.5.6pre1 are:

    - Improved the keep-alive code (when a timeout is in effect) to
      handle a long silence between the sender and the receiver that can
      occur when the sender is receiving the checksum data for a large

    - If a source filename ends with the name "..", treat it like "../"
      had been specified (so that we don't copy files to the parent dir
      of the destination).

    - If --delete is combined with a file-listing rsync command (i.e. no
      transfer is happening), avoid outputting a warning that we
      couldn't delete anything.

    - If --stats is specified with --delete-after, ensure that all the
      "deleting" messages are output before the statistics.

    - Improved one "if" in the deletion code that was only checking
      errno for ENOTEMPTY when it should have also been checking for
