Ma Gnus 0.3 released and changing file transfer mode in Ange-ftp

Ma Gnus 0.3 has been released, primarily targeting marks removal from various backends.  And if you want to change the file transfer modes(binary/ascii) when read/writing remote files in emacs, you need to tinker with ange-ftp-binary-file-name-regexp as suggested in this post.  If you need to know what Ange-ftp is, you also need to know Tramp.
