> * New --min-cert-level option to disregard key signatures that are
> under a specified level.
> * New --max-output option to limit the amount of plaintext output
> generated by GnuPG. This option can be used by programs which
> call GnuPG to process messages that may result in plaintext
> larger than the calling program is prepared to handle. This is
> sometimes called a "Decompression Bomb".
> * New --list-config command for frontends and other programs that
> call GnuPG. See doc/DETAILS for the specifics of this.
> * Some performance improvements with large keyrings. See
> --enable-key-cache=SIZE in the README file for details.
> * Some portability fixes for the OpenBSD/i386, HPPA, and AIX
> * New keyserver-option "http-proxy" to specify which proxy to use
> in the config file without using environment variables.
> * Added support for storing, retrieving, and searching for keys in
> LDAP servers. Note that this is different than the "LDAP
> keyserver" which was already (and remains) supported.
> * Added support for TLS and LDAPS session encryption for LDAP.
> * --show-session-key/--override-session-key now works with
> --symmetric messages.
> * The configure options --enable-rsa and --disable-rsa can now be
> used to enable or disable RSA support. This can be useful for
> embedded use where space is tight. --enable-minimal includes
> * The last support for Elgamal sign+encrypt keys has been removed.
