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 2.2 (released 2009-05-20)
- Change how the ASN1_API decorator is used in libtasn1.h, for GTK-DOC.
- Changed license of libtasn1.pc from GPLv3+ to LGPLv2.1+.
  Reported by Jeff Cai <Jeff.Cai at Sun.COM>.
- Building with many warning flags now requires --enable-gcc-warnings.
- Some warnings fixed.

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 for more details.
