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 2.0 (released 2009-04-13)
- Optimized tree generation.
- ASN1 parser code re-generated using Bison 2.4.1.
- Build with more warning flags. Many compiler warnings fixed.
- Compiled with -fvisibility=hidden by default if supported.
- The libtasn1-config tool has been removed.
For application developers, please stop using libtasn1-config for
finding libtasn1, use proper autoconf checks or pkg-config instead.
For users that need a libtasn1 that provides a libtasn1-config
script (for use with older applications), use libtasn1 v1.x instead.
Version 1.x is still supported.
Commercial support contracts for Libtasn1 are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance. Simon Josefsson Datakonsult AB, 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.
