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 1.3 (released 2008-02-01)
- Handle 'INTEGER { ... } (a..b)' regression.
  Revert parts of earlier fix.  asn1Parser can now again parse src/pkix.asn1.
  The ASN1.c file was generated using Bison 2.3.
- Move examples from src/ to new directory examples/.
- Duplicate copy of divergated pkix.asn removed.
- Merge unnecessary lib/defines.h into lib/int.h.
- Configure no longer tries to use gcc -pipe.
- Update gnulib files.
- Fix mem leak in self-test.

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.
