Hi friends,

I've just packaged, signed and uploaded libssh2 1.8.0. Enjoy! As always,
you'll find it here:

libssh2 1.8.0

This release includes the following changes:

  o added a basic dockerised test suite
  o crypto: add support for the mbedTLS backend

This release includes the following bugfixes:

  o libgcrypt: fixed a NULL pointer dereference on OOM
  o VMS: can't use %zd for off_t format
  o VMS: update vms/libssh2_config.h
  o windows: link with crypt32.lib
  o libssh2_channel_open: speeling error fixed in channel error message
  o msvc: fixed 14 compilation warnings
  o tests: HAVE_NETINET_IN_H was not defined correctly
  o openssl: add OpenSSL 1.1.0 compatibility
  o cmake: Add CLEAR_MEMORY option, analogously to that for autoconf
  o configure: make the --with-* options override the OpenSSL default
  o libssh2_wait_socket: set err_msg on errors
  o libssh2_wait_socket: Fix comparison with api_timeout to use milliseconds

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

   Alexander Lamaison, Antenore Gatta, Brad Harder, Charles Collicutt,
   Craig A. Berry, Dan Fandrich, Daniel Stenberg, Kamil Dudka, Keno Fischer,
   Taylor Holberton, Viktor Szakats, Will Cosgrove, Zenju

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