Noone can tell you this but you can quite trivially find out
yourself by using git bisect.

Create a script to build libssh2 and your application, and run your
application and return error or success.

Study the git bisect documentation. You will do a git clone of the
libssh2 code repository, and then do something like:

git bisect start RELEASE.1.1 libssh2-1.2.7 -- && \
  git bisect run yourscript

This will then output which of the 499 commits between 1.1 and 1.2.7
has fixed your problem.

There were obviously at least 499 problems fixed in 1.2.7.

It's silly to believe that anyone can answer you. You just have to
test it. git makes it trivial.
