GNOME’s Virtual Filesystem Gained SFTP Pull Support

Therefore, GVFS 1.19.3 adds support pull support and implements try_query_fs_info using the OpenSSH statvfs extension in the SFTP protocol. It supports seek past end of file for the HTTP protocol, and sets the is_hidden property for all files that start with a ‘.’ on the DAV protocol.
