[gnutls-dev] OpenCDK 0.5.9

The OpenCDK library provides basic parts of the OpenPGP message
format.  Due to some possible security problems, the library also
implements parts of draft-ietf-openpgp-rfc2440bis-08.txt.

The aim of the library is *not* to replace any available OpenPGP
version.  There will be no real support for key management (sign,
revoke, alter preferences, ...) and some other parts are only
rudimentary available.  The main purpose is to handle and understand
OpenPGP packets and to use basic operations.  For example to
encrypt/decrypt or to sign/verify and packet routines.

Noteworthy changes in version 0.5.9 (2006-08-06)

* Fix cdk_kbnode_write_to_mem to return CDK_Too_Short when buf is
  NULL, tiny patch from Mario Lenz.

* Fixed opencdk-config script to include -lz, thanks to Weng Liong, Low.

* Fix prototypes for AIX compiler, reported by John Heiden.

* Don't use trailing comma in last enum constant, for IBM C v6.  Tiny
  patch from Albert Chin.

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