We are pleased to announce the availability of Libgcrypt 1.2.0, which
is the first stable release of this general purpose crypto library
based on GnuPG code.

Note, that Libgcrypt is neither a replacement for GnuPG nor does it
contain a library version of GnuPG.  It is only of interest for
developers of crypto applications with a need for crypto building
blocks available under the GNU Lesser General Public License.

Complete source packages: (927k)

  a1657523beebf926ca7992cc6b9ea9b5  libgcrypt-1.1.94-1.2.0.diff.gz

Except for one bug fix this release is basically equivalent to the
last pre-release.

Thanks to all who have worked on Libgcrypt (and thanks to those who
have worked on other things as well).

Happy hacking.
