Some critical fixes in this release and some reorganization of the trunk and tarball. If you are using 0.6.16, it is highly advised to upgrade as soon as possible.
New in v0.6.17 (2011/11/25)
- Added --rsync-options flag to allow user to pass options to rsync at will
- Added --s3-use-multiprocessing to select the new s3 multiprocessing backend.
Default is to use the single processing backend. A helper, filechunkio.py,
requires Python 2.6+, so this option is not usable in earlier versions.
