0.2.9 (current, released 2016-07-04)
bugfix: correctly implement hostcheck. Now, be default pysftp will verify the host. See pysftp.CnOpts.hostkeys
added pysftp.Connection.remote_server_key – used to retrieve the remote hosts server key.
added support for enabling compression, compression (J. Kruth)
added .active_compression, to return the active local and remote compression settings as a tuple
fixed an unwanted logging side-effect, after you set logging, it would remain, even if you closed the .Connection and couldn’t be changed to something else. Now when Connection closes, any logging handlers are closed and can be changed to something else upon the next .Connection
moved log parameter of Connection to the new CnOpts connection options object, deprecated the existing log parameter, will be removed in 0.3.0
modified pysftp.Conection.walktree to always use posixpath conventions when walking a remote directory per the latest draft-ietf-secsh-filexfer-13.txt. Issue encountered with windows clients (#60)
modified pysftp.reparent to handle mis-matched pathing, i.e. windows -> posix, better (#61)
0.2.8 (released 2014-05-28)
created pysftp.walktree for walking local directories
added param recurse to .pysftp.Connection.walktree to allow it to do another trick
created .put_d to put the contents of a local directory to a remote one
created a context manager chdir method,
created .put_r to recursively put the contents of a local directory to a remote one
fixed a bug with .st_mode_to_int on py3 (#52)
.listdir_attr now returns a sorted list, sorted on filename
created with-context version of os.chdir for local directories
created docs, cookbook to show off some of the notable features of pysftp

added .normalize
created .get_r to recursively copy remote directories to a local path
created .pwd to return the current working directory
created .cwd as synonym for .chdir
modified .listdir to return a sorted list instead of an arbitrary one

added .timeout to set the read/write timeout of the underlying channel for pending read/write ops
added .listdir_attr, wrapper for paramiko method
added .truncate, method returns the new file size
improved DRY’ness of test suite
0.2.6 (released 2014-05-17)

0.2.3 (released 2014-05-10)
host code on pypi to keep pip happy
move code to bitbucket
enhance testing
README.rst and LICENSE named properly
