I am pleased to announce the availability of Libidn version 0.6.1!

Noteworthy changes since version 0.6.0:

- Make it possible to cross-compile to mingw32.
You can build Libidn for Windows by invoking `./configure
--host=i586-mingw32msvc' (or similar).

- Minor changes in how the C# code is built.

- Update of gnulib files.

Libidn is a modern C library to perform internationalized string
processing based on the Stringprep, Punycode, Internationalizing
Domain Names in Applications (IDNA) specifications.

The library contains a generic Stringprep implementation that does
Unicode 3.2 NFKC normalization, mapping and prohibitation of
characters, and bidirectional character handling.  Profiles for
Nameprep, iSCSI, SASL and XMPP are included.  Punycode and ASCII
Compatible Encoding (ACE) via IDNA are supported.  A mechanism to
define Top-Level Domain (TLD) specific validation tables, and to
compare strings against those tables, is included.  Default tables for
some TLDs are also included.  Finally, the library can detect "problem
sequences" that may trigger bugs in various NFKC implementations.

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

Commercial support contracts for Libidn are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding Libidn
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
