Noteworthy changes in version 1.4.10 (unreleased)

    * 2048 bit RSA keys are now generated by default.  The default
      hash algorithm preferences has changed to prefer SHA-256 over
      SHA-1.  2048 bit DSA keys are now generated to use a 256 bit
      hash algorithm

    * Support v2 OpenPGP cards.

    * The algorithm to compute the SIG_ID status has been changed to
      match the one from 2.0.10.

    * Improved file locking.  Implemented it for W32.

    * Fixed a memory leak which made imports of many keys very slow.

    * Many smaller bug fixes.

    * Support for the Camellia cipher (RFC-5581).

    * Support for HKP keyservers over SSL ("HKPS").
