ssh key Ed25519 and better ciphers/kex?

Can you confirm that Ed25519 keys are not supported for Bitbucket?

Also, are there any plans to support more advanced ssh ciphers, kex, and mac protocols in the future?

I'd like to see the cipher, the key exchange, and (or at least hmac-sha2-512 or hmac-sha2-256) macs.

Thanks you.

ed25512 has been around for a while, and there is quite a few people using this. And Github supports it flawlessly. I was very disappointed recently when I upgraded my keychain and realized the new chain was incompatible with Bitbucket. Please fix(?).

Apparently not. Github supports them, however.
