Subject: cryptlib 3.2.3a released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.encryption.cryptlib

cryptlib 3.2.3a, which fixes various minor glitches in 3.2.3, has just been
released to the usual locations (see the download page for the links). 
This
fixes a range of minor problem with the 3.2.3 release:

- Some debug code was left enabled for the Win32 debug build (you wouldn't
  have noticed this unless you build the windows debug build).

- Under some circumstances the shared lib built on a x86 system with some
  versions of gcc could cause a segfault when run, because some gcc
versions
  make assumptions about using ebx to point to static data but don't know
that
  rdtsc destroys ebx.

- cryptlib built with Visual Studio 2005 would cause a memory fault because
  the safer-C routines that Microsoft uses differ slightly from the ISO TR
  24731 ones (MS built their libs based on an early draft, which was
changed
  after VS 2005 was released).  You'd only notice this if you don't use the
  supplied cl32.dll.

- VS 2005 also changed the time_t type from 32- to 64 bits.  The cryptlib
  self-test now includes a check for this.

- The code to generate the C# bindings for the cryptlib header didn't
handle
  one portion of the header correctly and therefore assigned incorrect
values
  to some cryptlib constants.  (If someone who speaks Python could fix the
  generation script in the /tools directory and send me the changes, that'd
  help with future releases).

- cryptlib will now autodetect (if possible) LDAP and ODBC support on Unix
  systems and autoconfigure itself to use them.

- Various other minor issues.

Since this release will shortly become cryptlib 3.3, everyone is strongly
encouraged to move to this code base because (a) you're going to have to
anyway at some point and (b) if you don't try this version and then
complain
about problems after it's released I will laugh at you in the sinister
manner
of Joseph Stalin just after he enslaved eastern Europe.

Peter.
