We are pleased to announce the general availability of Serv-U FTP & MFT Server version 15.2. This release contains new features and improvements, notably
IMPORTANT: This Serv-U version 15.2 shouldn't be applied for installations with automated users or generally users who don't have access to Serv-U web ftp client as they are prompted to change password and it is not possible without login via web ftp client so their access will not work. In case Serv-U 15.2 is applied for this type of implementation current workaround is to revert version 15.2. We will inform about new version without this limitation soon.
EDIT: Serv-U version 15.2.1 resolving this limit is now available - announcement
