Hello Guilers,

I'm pleased to announce Guile-SSH 0.10.2:

Please find the package signed with my GPG key[1] here:

This release adds new procedure 'channel-send-eof' to (ssh channel) that
allows to send end-of-file (EOF) on a channel; there are less
significant changes as well.  Please see the full list of user-visible
changes below.

Thanks for all the contributions, they where very helpful.  Contributors
listed in the documentation, 'AUTHORS' and 'THANKS' files included in
the distribution.

* What is Guile-SSH?

Guile-SSH is a library that provides access to the SSH protocol[2] for
programs written in GNU Guile interpreter.  It is built upon the
libssh[3] library.

Currently Guile-SSH provides the following features:
  - The API that is sufficient for building of standalone SSH clients and
    servers, or for embedding client/server functionality in your lispy Scheme
  - Several authentication methods are supported, including password
    authentication, public key and SSH agent authentication methods.
  - Key management procedures: you can make key pairs, read keys from files,
    get key hashes, get public keys from private keys etc.  DSS, RSA, RSA1 and
    ECDSA (by means of OpenSSL) are supported.
  - Port forwarding procedures and high-level API for creating of SSH tunnels.
  - Distributed forms ('dist-map', 'distribute', ...) that allow to spread the
    evaluation of Scheme code between remote hosts.  Or you can just connect
    to a remote REPL from Scheme using 'with-ssh' procedure and evaluate some
    expressions.  No special server needed on the remote side, just an SSH
    daemon and GNU Guile installed!
  - SFTP client API allows you to read and write remote files over the SSH
    protocol right from the Scheme code.
  - Remote popen API that allows you to make either input, output or
    bidirectional pipes to remote processes.
  - Detailed documentation in Texinfo format with examples included, even more
    examples in 'examples' directory.

* The list of user-visible changes

Here's the list of user-visible changes (an excerpt from NEWS file):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* Changes in version 0.10.2 (2016-11-25)
** New procedures
*** New procedure 'channel-send-eof' in (ssh channel)
    The procedure allows to send end-of-file (EOF) on a channel. This action
    doesn't close the channel; you may still read from it but not write.
    'channel-send-eof!' is handy when we deal with a remote command that reads
    data until EOF (such as 'wc'.)
** Documentation
*** Add procedure index
** Misc
*** Fixed several compilation warnings

Happy hacking!
