I am pleased to announce version 1.5.1 of GPGME.

  GnuPG Made Easy (GPGME) is a C language library that allows to add
  support for cryptography to a program.  It is designed to make access
  to public key crypto engines as included in GnuPG easier for
  applications.  GPGME provides a high-level crypto API for encryption,
  decryption, signing, signature verification, and key management.

This is a security fix release and it is suggested to update to this
version.  Given that the 1.5 versions are quite new and implement
features which may raise problems with some software, I also released
version 1.4.4 with backported fixes.

* Noteworthy changes in version 1.5.1 (2014-07-30)

 - Fixed possible overflow in gpgsm and uiserver engines.

 - Added support for GnuPG 2.1's --with-secret option.

 - Interface changes relative to the 1.5.0 release:

* Noteworthy changes in version 1.4.4 (2014-07-30)

 - Fixed possible overflow in gpgsm and uiserver engines.

 - Fixed possibled segv in gpgme_op_card_edit.

 - Fixed minor memleaks and possible zombie processes.

 - Fixed prototype inconsistencies and void pointer arithmetic.
