I am pleased to announce the availability of libgcrypt version 1.1.11.
Libgcrypt is a general purpose cryptographic library based on the code
from GnuPG and licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License.
It provides functions for all cryptograhic building blocks: symmetric
ciphers (AES,DES,Blowfish,CAST5,Twofish,Arcfour), hash algorithms
(MD4, MD5, RIPE-MD160, SHA-1, TIGER-192), MACs (HMAC for all hash
algorithms), public key algorithms (RSA, ElGamal, DSA), large integer
functions, random numbers and a lot of supporting functions.
Available at the usual places, e.g.:
Please check the signature file; we don't provide MD5 checksums.
A patch file against the previous version is also available (60k),
please ignore a possible patch error related to the w32-dll directory.
News since 1.1.10:
* Does not export internal symbols anymore
(currently only for GNU systems)
* New algorithm: MD4
* Implemented ciphertext stealing.
* Smaller bugs fixes and a few new OIDs.
* Interface changes relative to the 1.1.8 release:
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year,
I know that the signature key does expire in a few days, however I
will extend the lifetime of this keys and make a new one available.
