[gnutls-dev] OpenCDK 0.5.11

The OpenCDK library implement 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 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, encrypt/decrypt,
sign/verify and packet parsing routines.  The library is used by
GnuTLS for OpenPGP support.

Noteworthy changes in version 0.5.11 (2006-10-26)

* Add a new self test "basic" to test cdk_check_version.

* Add prototype of cdk_stream_decrypt to opencdk.h, reported by Adam

* Fix crash in cdk_data_transform triggered by self-tests.

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.
