Hi friends!

I've just packaged, signed and uploaded libssh2 1.2.7 to the site. Get it as
usual from:

The RELEASE-NOTES looks like this:

libssh2 1.2.7

This release includes the following changes:

  o Added Watcom makefile

This release includes the following bugfixes:

  o Better handling of invalid key files
  o inputchecks: make lots of API functions check for NULL pointers
  o libssh2_session_callback_set: extended the man page
  o SFTP: limit write() to not produce overly large packets
  o agent: make libssh2_agent_userauth() work blocking properly
  o _libssh2_userauth_publickey: reject method names longer than the data
  o channel_free: ignore problems with channel_close()
  o typedef: make ssize_t get typedef without LIBSSH2_WIN32
  o _libssh2_wait_socket: poll needs milliseconds
  o libssh2_wait_socket: reset error code to "leak" EAGAIN less
  o Added include for sys/select.h to get fd.set on some platforms
  o session_free: free more data to avoid memory leaks
  o openssl: make use of the EVP interface
  o Fix underscore typo for 64-bit printf format specifiers on Windows
  o Make libssh2_debug() create a correctly terminated string
  o userauth_hostbased_fromfile: packet length too short
  o handshake: Compression enabled at the wrong time
  o Don't overflow MD5 server hostkey

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

  Alexander Lamaison, Guenter Knauf, Peter Stuge, Simon Josefsson, Lars Nordin,
  John Little, Daniel Stenberg, TJ Saunders, Tor Arntsen

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