Hi friends,

I've happy to announce that I've just packaged, signed and uploaded the new
libssh2 version 1.2.6 package to our web site. Get it from

libssh2 1.2.6

This release includes the following changes:

  o Added libssh2_sftp_statvfs() and libssh2_sftp_fstatvfs()
  o Added libssh2_knownhost_checkp()
  o Added libssh2_scp_send64()

This release includes the following bugfixes:

  o wait_socket: make c89 compliant and use two fd_sets for select()
  o OpenSSL AES-128-CTR detection
  o proper keyboard-interactive user dialog in the sftp.c example
  o build procedure for VMS
  o fixed libssh2.dsw to use the generated libssh2.dsp
  o several Windows-related build fixes
  o fail to init SFTP if session isn't already authenticated
  o many tiny fixes that address clang-analyzer warnings
  o sftp_open: deal with short channel_write calls
  o libssh2_publickey_init: fixed to work better non-blocking
  o sftp_close_handle: add precation to not access NULL pointer
  o sftp_readdir: simplified and bugfixed
  o channel_write: if data has been sent, don't return EAGAIN

This release would not have looked like this without help, code, reports and
advice from friends like these:

  Alexander Lamaison, Guenter Knauf, Dan Fandrich, Grubsky Grigory,
  Joey Degges, Jose Baars, Mikhail Gusarov, Peter Stuge, Simon Josefsson,
  Daniel Stenberg

         Thanks! (and sorry if I forgot to mention someone)
