[ANN] Guile-SSH 0.11.3 released

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.3 (gnu/linux)

Hello Guilers,

I'm pleased to announce Guile-SSH 0.11.3:
  https://github.com/artyom-poptsov/guile-ssh/releases/tag/v0.11.3

Please find the package signed with my GPG key[1] here:
  - ftp://memory-heap.org/software/guile-ssh/guile-ssh-0.11.3.tar.gz
  - ftp://memory-heap.org/software/guile-ssh/guile-ssh-0.11.3.tar.gz.sig

This release fixes 'node-run-server' behaviour: now the procedure throws
an error if it fails to start RREPL instead of going down an infinite
loop.


* 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
    applications.
  - 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.

** Bugfixes
*** 'node-run-server' now checks for errors
    When 'node-run-server' fails to start the server it would go down an
    infinite loop.  The procedure now checks if the RREPL server started
    correctly and throws 'node-error' if it's not.
