This message announces the first experimental release of Feature
Enhanced GNU InetUtils, a fork of the official GNU InetUtils.

The motivation behind the fork is to be able to add new features to
GNU InetUtils.  Initially the features are security oriented, like
adding Kerberos 5 and TLS support to telnet or ftp, but other ideas
are welcome.

There will be irregular releases of this fork until patches are
accepted up-stream.  The philosophy will be to make the additions
easily integrated into up-stream.  All new features are disabled by
default, and hidden behind #if conditionals.

I have created a web page for this fork, available from:


>From that page, you can browse CVS of FEG InetUtils, read the FEG
specific NEWS and ChangeLog entries, access our mailing list, and


PS. FEG InetUtils supersede the "Shishi" branch of InetUtils.

Here is the patch compared to official GNU InetUtils:
