New features:

  - vcp/vsftp/vsh: A new command-line option --hostkeyalgorithm
    allows the host key algorithm to be specified.
  - vkeygen: The SHA-2 fingerprint is also shown in base64
    when keys are created or displayed using the -l and -f flags.
  - vcp/vsh/vsftp: Prompts to accept the host key now also display
    the SHA-2 fingerprint in base64.
  - vcp/vsh/vsftp: The trace output shows the SHA-2 host key

Changes:

  - vsftp/vcp: Because it caused problems for some servers, vsftp and
    vcp no longer send lstat, stat, or RealPath on "./.".
  - vkeygen: If -l is specified with a key file, the SHA-2 fingerprint
    is displayed.
  - vkeygen: The output when vkeygen is run with the -l and -f flags
    now includes the bit size of the key.

Bug fixes:

  - vcp/vsftp: Uploading files to a Serv-U SFTP server that only had
    write permissions in the target directory did not work.
  - Windows: On high-DPI monitors, the EULA dialog in the installer
    did not display correctly.
