[gnutls-dev] OpenCDK 0.5.10

The OpenCDK library implement basic parts of the OpenPGP message
format.  Due to some possible security problems, the library also
implements parts of draft-ietf-openpgp-rfc2440bis-08.txt.

The aim of the library is *not* to replace any available OpenPGP
version.  There will be no real support for key management (sign,
revoke, alter preferences, ...) and some other parts are only
rudimentary available.  The main purpose is to handle and understand
OpenPGP packets and to use basic operations.  For example,
encrypt/decrypt, sign/verify and packet parsing routines.

Noteworthy changes in version 0.5.10 (2006-10-11)

* Fix double-free in cdk_pklist_encrypt, reported by Adam Langley.

* Fix keydb_idx_search() to handle keys at offset 0, thanks to Adam Langley.

* A pkg-config script was added, thanks to Andreas Metzler.

* Autobuild time stamps are used, for easier build robot testing.

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