libssh2 release again

libssh2We've mostly been fixing bugs and making things internally look better in the libssh2 source code during the recent months so the new release I just uploaded, called version 1.2.7, isn't really exciting to any particular level for outsiders. Existing users should however be fairly happy as we've addressed a fair bunch of bugs and some of them have been annoying us in the project for a long time.

I'm convinced this is the best libssh2 release we've ever made.

The list of bug-fixes include these:

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

If you find other bugs or have patches, just bring them all to us!
