Hi everyone!

This is the release for version 2.1.0 of Torsocks. Special thanks to
Yawning that helped a lot with the new features, finding bugs and
providing patches! Also, thanks to all contributors and users out there
providing us with feedbacks! :)

Changes that are worth mentionning:

- Support for TCP fast open.

- AllowOutboundLocalhost option allows torsocks to connect to a
  localhost address.

- IsolatePID is a new option that will make torsocks set the SOCKS5
  username and password automatically to provide isolation on Tor side.

  You can use this with the -i,--isolate command added or
  TORSOCKS_ISOLATE_PID env. variable.

- Fix initialization phase when used with C++.

- Way less annoying warnings of syscall being denied. Most of them were
  harmless so we let them pass now.

- Multiple fixes! (see changelog below)

Here is the change log for this version.
