Libtasn1 is a standalone library written in C for manipulating ASN.1
objects including DER/BER encoding and DER/BER decoding.  Libtasn1 is
used by GnuTLS to manipulate X.509 objects and by Shishi to handle
Kerberos V5 packets.

Version 0.3.7 (released 2006-10-19)
- When asn1_der_coding encoded a TYPE_NULL and the output buffer is
  NULL, it would not increment the counter properly, so the size of
  the required buffer would be off by one.  Fixed.  Reported by
  Stephen Wrobleski <steve at localtoast.org>.
- Fix configure to respect user-definable flags.  Reported by "Diego
  'Flameeyes' Pettenò" <flameeyes at gentoo.org>.
- The --help and --version outputs from the tools have been improved.

Commercial support contracts for Libtasn1 are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding Libtasn1
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
projects.  See http://josefsson.org/ for more details.
