I am pleased to announce the availability of GNU SASL version 0.2.12!

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 in gsasl since version 0.2.11:

** Update of gnulib files.
Improves portability to Mingw32.

Noteworthy changes in libgsasl since version 0.2.11:

** Add -no-undefined to libtool command, to build DLL and import library on 
Reported by Francis Brosnan Blazquez <address@hidden>.

** Improved validation of received strings in the DIGEST-MD5 parser.

** Enable fixed self-test of DIGEST-MD5 parser.

** 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
projects.  See for more details.
