Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.1 (2002-02-09)

 * There is a Texinfo manual documenting the API.

 * The gpgme_set_keylist_mode function returns an error, and changed
   its meaning.  It is no longer usable to select between normal and
   fast mode (newer versions of GnuPG will always be fast), but
   selects between local keyring, remote keyserver, or both.
   For this, two new macros are defined, GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_LOCAL
   and GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_EXTERN.  To make it possible to modify the
   current setting, a fucntion gpgme_get_keylist_mode was added to
   retrieve the current mode.

 * gpgme_wait accepts a new argument STATUS to return the error status
   of the operation on the context.  Its definition is closer to
   waitpid() now than before.

 * The LENGTH argument to gpgme_data_new_from_filepart changed its
   type from off_t to the unsigned size_t.

 * The R_HD argument to the GpgmePassphraseCb type changed its type
   from void* to void**.

 * New interface gpgme_op_trustlist_end() to match

 * The CryptPlug modules have been renamed to gpgme-openpgp and
   gpgme-smime, and they are installed in pkglibdir by `make install'.

 * An idle function can be registered with gpgme_register_idle().

 * The GpgSM backend supports key generation with gpgme_op_genkey().

 * Interface changes relative to the 0.3.0 release:
gpgme_data_new_from_filepart    CHANGED: Type of LENGTH is size_t.
GpgmePassphraseCb               CHANGED: Type of R_HD is void **.
gpgme_wait                      CHANGED: New argument STATUS.
gpgme_set_keylist_mode          CHANGED: Type of return value is GpgmeError.
                                The function has a new meaning!
gpgme_get_keylist_mode          NEW
gpgme_op_trustlist_next         NEW
GpgmeIdleFunc                   NEW
gpgme_register_idle             NEW
