Announcement: libgphoto2 and gphoto2 2.5.11 release

Marcus Meissner-4
Hi folks!

After a quite busy year for me I finally am finding a bit of time again, and
I am happy to announce the release of libgphoto2 and gphoto2 2.5.11.

Most interesting changes are capture support for newer Canon EOS and improved
capture support for the Sony Alpha series. Full changes below.

Thanks again to all contributors, patch suppliers, bug reports, translators
and users :)

Please report bugs or problems as usual (via github :)

Ciao, Marcus
