Zach Sherman commented on IO-741:
---------------------------------

[~ggregory], very sorry for the delay on this. We were able to verify that this issue is fixed
in 2.11. Thank you for getting the fix out so quickly.

> This is a regression from 2.6.0.  We are using the following FileUtils utility function
to list matching files under a directory:
> {noformat}
> public static Collection<File> listFiles(File directory, String[] extensions, boolean
recursive){noformat}
>  
> In particular the call we are making is:
> {noformat}
> FileUtils.listFiles(extension, new String[]{"jar"}, false);{noformat}
> This used to return all matching files in 2.6.0 when the directory was a symlink, but
it no longer does. Breaking through the code in a debugger, I was able to manually add the
FileVisitOptions.FOLLOW_LINKS option, but this is not specifiable from an external caller
outside of commons-io.
