Go and download gnupg-0.3.0.tar.gz from ftp.guug.de:/pub/gcrypt or
get the diff file gnupg-0.3.0.diff.gz from /pub/gcrypt/diffs.
You might also be interested in "ftp> ls old/*.c" :-).
I might have introduced some bugs due to major code changes but it
works fine on x86 and alpha Linux.
I added some assembler stuff for mips3 - but this is not tested.
I hope my DSA key generation is okay - someone with a good
understanding of this should have a close look at it (I can explain
the code on request).
Here are the NEWS:
* New option --emulate-checksum-bug. If your passphrase does not
work anymore, use this option and --change-passphrase to rewrite
your passphrase. Sorry, it was a bad bug I introduced while
switching to real bitlength counting: An encrypted MPI can
have some bits more or less as the encryption is done at full
bytes and so I got the wrong bit count and in turn the checksum
got calculated wrong.
* More complete v4 key support: Preferences and expiration time
is set into the self signature.
* Key generation defaults to DSA/ElGamal keys, so that new keys
are interoperable with pgp5
* DSA key generation is faster and key generation does not anymore
remove entropy from the random generator (the primes are public
parameters, so there is really no need for a cryptographic
secure prime number generator which we had used).
* A complete new structure for representing the key parameters.
* Removed most public key knowledge into the cipher libray.
* Support for dynamic loading of new algorithms.
* Moved tiger to an extension module.
I have done some tests with pgp 2.6.3ia and it failed on checking the
tar.gz.sig file which I created with gnupg. It complains about a
"Bad length in signature certificate (off by -1)" [with some debugging
code]; when I ignore this check, it verifies the signature okay.
PGP 5 seems not to have this problem.
