Hi friends,

I'm happy to be able to ship yet another libssh2 release. Get it like always

The release notes this times look like below:

libssh2 1.4.0

This release includes the following changes:

  o Added libssh2_session_supported_algs()
  o Added libssh2_session_banner_get()
  o Added libssh2_sftp_get_channel()
  o libssh2.h: bump the default window size to 256K

This release includes the following bugfixes:

  o sftp-seek: clear EOF flag
  o userauth: Provide more informations if ssh pub key extraction fails
  o ssh2_exec: skip error outputs for EAGAIN
  o LIBSSH2_SFTP_PACKET_MAXLEN: increase to 80000
  o knownhost_check(): Don't dereference ext if NULL is passed
  o knownhost_add: Avoid dereferencing uninitialized memory on error path
  o OpenSSL EVP: fix threaded use of structs
  o _libssh2_channel_read: react on errors from receive_window_adjust
  o sftp_read: cap the read ahead maximum amount
  o _libssh2_channel_read: fix non-blocking window adjusting

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

  Gellule Xg, Jernej Kovacic, Peter Krempa, Vincent Torri, Kamil Dudka,
  Peter Stuge, Guenter Knauf, John Engstrom, Alexander Lamaison,
  Mikhail Gusarov

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