Hi All,
I wanted to give you guys a heads up, I’m working on ecdsa-sha2-nistp256 host key support as well as KEX (ecdh-sha2-nistp256) support. I will likely add nistp384/521 KEX support as well. I’ve also added sha256 host key hash support to be in line with OpenSSH as they now default to sha256 hashes.

I plan on landing these changes post libssh2 release to let them have a time to bake a bit. Let me know if you have any questions/comments.
