Hi, all.

ftp.esper.net's ftpd has been upgraded from ProFTPD 1.2.0rc2 to 1.2.0rc3
and has been switched from inetd to standalone.

If anyone was having problems with passive transfers, those should be
fixed.  I have observed some of my non-anonymous users have problems with
passive transfers in 1.2.0rc2, plus I have seen this myself as well.

Plus going to a self-forking model should improve performance as well.

If anyone's encountering any problems or has questions, please let me
