the upcoming 3.0.0 release.

Please test this out and email the rsync mailing list with any

This version has the following fixes since pre1 was released:

 - Fixed the listing of directories with --list-only, --relative, and
   --no-recursive.  This fix involved getting rid of an old "FIXME" in
   the code where a non-recursive listing would list directories on
   the server using -r and an extra exclude to drop the content of
   sub-directories (which could fail to work if the user had their
   own excludes).  The code now sends the --dirs option for a
   non-recursive listing.

 - Fixed a delete glitch with --relative, --no-recursive, --dirs, and

 - Improve the internal flagging of implied directories and those that
   were sent with and without content.

 - Fixed a problem with the remote charset arg when using the new

 - Fixed a build glitch for some strange iconv setups.

 - Fixed a problem in the AIX ACL code.

 - Fixed a build glitch for some pre-processors that didn't like an
   #if conditional inside a macro.

 - Improved patches/dynamic-hash.diff (which is one solution that
   should help to speed up the transfer of really large files) so that
   it doesn't also slow down the transfer of normal-sized files.
