Libgcrypt 1.3.2 (devel) released

We are pleased to announce the availability of Libgcrypt 1.3.2. This
version should be considered a release candidate for 1.4.0.

Libgcrypt is a general purpose library of cryptographic building
blocks. It is originally based on code used by GnuPG. It does not
provide any implementaion of OpenPGP or other protocols. Thorough
understanding of applied cryptography is required to use libgcrypt.

Changes compared to 1.3.2 are:

* The visibility attribute is now used if supported by the toolchain.

* The ACE engine of VIA processors is now used for AES-128.

* The ASN.1 DER template for SHA-224 has been fixed.

Source code is hosted at the GnuPG FTP server and its mirrors as
listed at . On the primary
server the source file and its digital signature is: (941k)

This file is bzip2 compressed. The SHA-1 checksum is:

a6d7cf7d717edf10718d9200ab7ee11296f984ee libgcrypt-1.3.2.tar.bz2

For help on developing with Libgcrypt you should send mail to the
grcypt-devel mailing list [1].

Improving Libgcrypt is costly, but you can help! We are looking for
organizations that find Libgcrypt useful and wish to contribute back.
You can contribute by reporting bugs, improve the software [2], or by
donating money.

Commercial support contracts for Libgcrypt are available [3], and they
help finance continued maintenance. g10 Code GmbH, a Duesseldorf
based company, is currently funding Libgcrypt development. We are
always looking for interesting development projects.

Happy hacking,
