We are pleased to announce version 0.7 of libgpg-error,
a library for common error values and messages in GnuPG components.

This is a shared library so it can be updated independently of each
individual component, while still allowing the use of new error values in
inter-process communication.

It may soon be found in the file (about 305 KB compressed)

It should soon appear on the mirrors listed at

Bug reports and requests for assistance should be sent to
gnupg-devel at gnu.org.

Noteworthy changes in version 0.7 (2004-03-07)

 * libgpg-error can be built on systems where the errno macros do not
   evaluate to plain numbers, but expressions.  If you want to
   cross-compile, you might have to set CC_FOR_BUILD, though.

 * A new tool gpg-error to convert error numbers into symbols into 
   strings is provided.

 * Interface changes relative to the 0.6 release:
