Yes, it's finally that time -- rsync 3.0.0 has been released.  This is a
feature release that also includes quite a few bug fixes.

I'd like thank everyone who participated in the development and testing
of rsync.  I hope that you enjoy this latest version!

The 3.0.0 version number is such a large bump up from 2.6.9 due to the
addition of an incremental recursion scan (which helps a lot with large
transfers) and the official arrival of several other new features,
including ACL support, extended attribute support, filename character-
set conversion, etc.
