I'm preannouncing this release because it falls outside of the normal quarterly
release cadence. 2.6.0 will be released tommorrow morning (EST time).

It resolves one medium severity vulnerability. Don't panic. Details will be
provided with the release.

Additionally, a miscompilation that affected GCC 7.3 on some systems has been
resolved; this caused the tests to go into an infinite loop. Initially this was
thought to only affect one particular build configuration (using -fno-plt flag)
but from further reports appears to be more widespread.
