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.:

 ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/alpha/libgcrypt/libgcrypt-1.1.11.tar.gz (680k)

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:
gcry_cipher_cts                   NEW
