Libidn is a modern library to perform internationalized string
processing based on the Stringprep, Punycode, Internationalizing Domain
Names in Applications (IDNA) specifications.  Libidn contains interfaces
for C (which can be used in C++), Java, C# and Emacs Lisp.

* Version 0.6.13 (released 2007-05-31)

** Documentation fixes.
Clarify that the C# and Java libraries are licensed under the LGPL.
Earlier, some places incorrectly said that these were licensed under
the GPL.  If you encounter other places that still suggest that GPL
applies to the C# and Java library, please let me know.

** Updated Polish and Vietnamese translations.
Thanks to Jakub Bogusz <address@hidden> and Clytie Siddall

** Install images for the manual in $infodir.
This fixes the broken image in the info manual.  Image files will be
called libidn-*.png to avoid namespace collisions with images from
other info manuals.

** Update gnulib files.

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

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 projects.  See for more details.
