Hi friends,

I just uploaded the 1.4.2 release, go get it from

This release includes the following bugfixes:

  o Return LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_DISCONNECT on EOF when reading banner
  o userauth.c: fread() from public key file to correctly detect any errors
  o Add option to disable build of the example applications
  o Added 'Requires.private:' line to libssh2.pc
  o SFTP: filter off incoming "zombie" responses
  o gettimeofday: no need for a replacement under cygwin
  o SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_REQUEST: default to want_reply
  o win32/libssh2_config.h: Remove hardcoded #define LIBSSH2_HAVE_ZLIB

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

  Alexander Lamaison, Rafael Kitover, Guenter Knauf, Peter Stuge,
  Oleksiy Zagorskyi

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