Hi friends,

I'm happy to announce that I've just now packaged and uploaded libssh2 1.1:

Get it from:


Changes since previous version include:

  o Downloads using SCP or SFTP are now significantly faster
  o Added a Libtool -export-symbols-regex flag to reduce the number of
    exported symbols in shared libraries.
  o Added a bunch of new man pages and renamed some of the previous ones
  o Enhanced download performance
  o Made libssh2_scp_recv() and libssh2_scp_send() deal with spaces in
  o Fixed the bad randomness and off-by-one in libssh2_channel_x11_req_ex()
  o Added libssh2_version()
  o Fixed libssh2_channel_direct_tcpip_ex() to not fail when called a second
  o Fixed libssh2_channel_write_ex problems in blocking situations
  o 'make check' runs fine on cygwin
  o Added libssh2_channel_receive_window_adjust2() and deprecated
  o better socket error handling internally on win32
  o libssh2 now always set the socket non-blocking internally and deals with
    the interface as blocking or non-blocking set by

This release would not have been possible without these friendly contributors:

   Markus Moeller, Romain Bondue, Olivier Hervieu, Peter Stuge, Heiner Steven,
   Mikhail Gusarov, Simon Josefsson, Yang Tse, Jean-Louis Charton,
   Daniel Johnson, Daniel Fandrich

Of course we would have nothing without the great work by Sara Golemon that
we're extending and building upon.
