Updated build for Ubuntu 18.04 will be needed

Updated build for Ubuntu 18.04 will be needed
Ubuntu 18.04 bumps the OpenSSL version and breaks WhatPulse 2.8.2 (with the well-known "AES functions" error) unless one manually downgrades the `libssl1.0.0` and `libssl-dev` packages to version 1.0.2g-1ubuntu4.11 (from the xenial repos).

I have held both packages for now, but this shouldn't be a permanent state for my Ubuntu system (this already breaks installing other development libraries like `libgnutls-dev`):

$ apt list --upgradable
Listing... Done
libssl-dev/bionic 1.1.0g-2ubuntu3 amd64 [upgradable from: 1.0.2g-1ubuntu4.11]
libssl1.0.0/bionic 1.0.2n-1ubuntu5 amd64 [upgradable from: 1.0.2g-1ubuntu4.11]

Honestly I thought WhatPulse's Linux support was better than this. Instead of manual downloads, there should really be proper package repos available for the supported Linux distributions if you won't let us build the client ourselves from source. (I'd be happy to do so, but I understand the WhatPulse client is currently closed-source.)
