Duplicity 0.8.08 Released

Written for Duplicity by Kenneth Loafman on 2019-12-08

New in v0.8.08 (2019/12/08)
---------------------------
* Fixed bug #1852848 with patch from Tomas Krizek
  - B2 moved the API from "b2" package into a separate "b2sdk" package.
    Using the old "b2" package is now deprecated. See link:
    https://github.com/Backblaze/B2_Command_Line_Tool/blob/master/b2/_sdk_deprecation.py
  - b2backend.py currently depends on both "b2" and "b2sdk", but use of "b2"
    is enforced and "b2sdk" isn't used at all.
  - The attached patch uses "b2sdk" as the primary dependency. If the new
    "b2sdk" module isn't available, it falls back to using the old "b2" in
    order to keep backward compatibility with older installations.
* Added build signing to dist/makesnap.
* Fixed bug #1852876 '_io.BufferedReader' object has no attribute 'uc_name'
  - Fixed a couple of instances where str() was used in place of util.uexc()
