Here is a new release:
* We have secure memory on systems which support mlock().
It is not complete yet, because we do not have a signal handler
which does a cleanup in very case.
We should also check the ulimit for the user in the case
that the admin does not have set a limit on locked pages.
* started with internationalization support.
* rewrote the armor stuff, but it is still not complete;
put the option "--no-armor" into your ~/.g10/options
* To use the secure memory, you have to install the program as
suid(root): chown root g10; chmod u+s g10.
uid root is dropped directly after locking the memory pool.
