GNU Libtasn1 is a standalone library written in C for manipulating ASN.1
objects including DER/BER encoding/decoding.  GNU Libtasn1 is used by
GnuTLS to handle X.509 structures and by GNU Shishi to handle Kerberos
V5 structures.

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.11 (2011-11-25) [stable]
- qa: Now builds without compiler warnings with Solaris CC.
- qa: Added clang analysis.  Fixed cyclomatic complexity output.
- tests: Added self-test of bit string functions.
- build: Added windows/ rules to produce Windows binaries.
- build: Don't hard code path to perl in doc/gdoc.
- Various minor fixes.

There is a known problem building this release on MinGW with MSVC as the
compiler, fortunately there is a workaround available -- please see
for more information.

Code coverage charts indicate parts of the source code that needs
to be tested better by the included self-tests:

Clang can analyse the source code for common problems, here is its
report for libtasn1:
