Dear Maintainer,

There's a new upstream release of libnice.
The new release is required for compatibility with RFC 8445, the updated
version of the ICE protocol.

libnice 0.1.18 (2020-10-20)
Remove the autotools build system, now only meson is available
On Windows, use crypto library instead of CryptGenRandom() which is deprecated
On Windows, use GetBestInterfaceEx() for UWP compatibility
On Windows, fix the listing of interfaces to use the correct APIs
On Windows, implement ignoring interfaces
Accept receiving messages in multiple steps over TCP
Accept duplicated ports as last option instead of spinning forever
Use sendmmsg if possible to send multiple packets in one call
Fail gathering if no port is available
Hide the implementation of NiceCandidate, this hides some parts that were
previously visible
Enable TURN server connects where both TCP and UDP use the same port number
Don't count rejected STUN messages as keepalive packets

libnice 0.1.17 (2020-05-22)
Add API to retrieve the underlying BSD sockets
Support systems with multiple loopback devices
Ignore non-running network interfaces
Ignore multiple interface prefixes
Now tries to nominate matching pairs across components and streams
Retry TURN deallocation on timeout, requires not destoying the NiceAgent right
after the stream
Use different port for every host candidate
Make timeouts and retransmissions more in line with the RFCs
Find OpenSSL without pkg-config, for Windows
Complete meson support
GLib required version update to 2.54
Removed deprecated GLib APIs
Many ICE compatibility and performance improvements
Many bug fixes
