I am pleased to announce the availability of GNU SASL version 0.2.6!

GNU SASL is a modern C library that implement the standard network
security protocol Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL).
The framework and a couple of common SASL mechanisms are implemented.
GNU SASL can be used by network applications for IMAP, SMTP and
similar protocols to provide authentication services (and more).

Noteworthy changes since version 0.2.5:
- The SASL PLAIN server now permit unassigned code points in SASLprep.
  This aligns with draft-ietf-sasl-plain-08.txt which is in last call.
- The gsasl tool now try to connect to all addresses for a server name.
- Fix use of 'head -1' in configure script.
- The macro AX_CREATE_STDINT_H used to find uint8_t, uint32_t etc was updated.
- The license template in files were updated with the new FSF address.
- gsasl_check_version simplified and made more robust.
- Update of gnulib files.

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

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