Pretty much your choice today is the magic 5.8.5 or use the latest v6.2 release. The 6.x releases resume shared memory compatibility with the v5 releases that post 5.8.6+ broke and TCL works again. The list of changes is pretty lengthy but the most significant to your work might be the addition of an optional field to the section part of ioftpd.ini. If you don't use it things would be compatible, but I think the default uses it as an example but doesn't really need to. I'm going from memory, but I think I saw an nx script comment about the new section definition breaking something.
Thanks, I forgot about that new section field that was added. I will add that to my to-do list.

I'll have to double check if I'm using relative symlinks for anything, I don't remember off the top of my head. What exactly did you change from a scripters perspective? Is there a new command or a new way of creating the symlink?
