User-agent: Gnus/5.110007 (No Gnus v0.7) Emacs/22.1 (gnu/linux)

Libidn is a fully documented implementation of the Stringprep, Punycode
and IDNA specifications defined by the IETF Internationalized Domain
Names (IDN) working group, used for internationalized domain names.  The
native C, C# and Java libraries are available under the GNU Lesser
General Public License version 2.1.

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.

* Version 1.1 (released 2007-09-01)

** Fix compilation error in idn-int.h.
The error would typically be 'error: no include path in which to
search for stdint.h'.  Reported by Remko van der Vossen
<address@hidden>, see
<> and

** Declare external variables with __declspec(import) for Windows.
Apparently this is required for variables in DLL's on Windows.  This
is enabled if __DECLSPEC_SUPPORTED is defined (MinGW), or if _MSC_VER
and_DLL is defined (MSVC).

** Update gnulib files.

** Update translations.

** API and ABI is backwards compatible with the previous version.

Libidn is developed for the GNU/Linux system, but runs on over 20 Unix
platforms (including Solaris, IRIX, AIX, and Tru64) and Windows.  Libidn
is written in C and (parts of) the API is accessible from C, C#, C++,
Emacs Lisp, Python and Java.

Also included is a command line tool, several self tests, code examples,
and more, all licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3.0.
