Internet-related Enhancements in Epsilon 12

Epsilon can now access remote files via scp, using external scp and sftp programs. Once scp support has been set up, features like dired (including directly copying between local and remote files), creating and deleting directories and completion all work. Ssh support, using an external ssh program, is also available. See Secure Shell and SCP Support for details.

Telnet buffers now interpret certain ANSI escape sequences for setting colors, and bare Ctrl-M characters that indicate overtyping. The telnet-interpret-output variable controls this. Command history works in telnet buffers.

When Epsilon recognizes password prompts in telnet and process buffers, the regular expression it uses for this purpose can now be customized by setting the recognize-password-pattern variable.

The new variable http-log-request makes Epsilon include the exact request it sends in its log buffer. The new variable http-force-headers makes Epsilon substitute the http request lines you specify for the request it would otherwise send.

Dired's FTP listings can now include hidden files (in v12.10), when permitted by the dired-show-dotfiles variable and dired's - subcommand, on systems that normally exclude them. For compatibility with older FTP servers, this feature is off by default. A new bit in the ftp-compatible-dirs variable enables it.
