Libtasn1 is a standalone library written in C for manipulating ASN.1
objects including DER/BER encoding and DER/BER decoding.  Libtasn1 is
used by GnuTLS to manipulate X.509 objects and by GNU Shishi to handle
Kerberos V5 packets.

Version 0.3.5 (2006-06-27)
- Fix asn1_octet_der to handle writes of zero-length buffers, before
  it did not write the ASN.1 length for a zero-length buffer.  This caused
  ASN.1 encodings to be incorrect on 64-bit platforms.
- Add self test that attempt to trigger the above bug.
- Fix test of -Wno-pointer-sign.
- Improve cross-compilation to MinGW by using AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL.

Commercial support contracts for Libtasn1 are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding Libtasn1
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
projects.  See http://josefsson.org/ for more details.
