I have released rsync version 2.6.6.  This release is a bug-fix release
to handle a null-pointer bug that turned up in rsync's version of zlib
1.1.4 (this is not the recent zlib 1.2.2 security fix, which did not
affect rsync) and to squash a few other minor bugs.  To deal with the
zlib issue, rsync has been upgraded to include zlib 1.2.3.

Here is a list of the changes between 2.6.5 and 2.6.6:

The latest man pages are online in their usual spots:

diffs based on the previous version).
