Gmane
From: Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos <nmav <at> gnutls.org>
Subject: GNU Libtasn1 3.1 released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.gnu.libtasn1.general
Date: Saturday 24th November 2012 17:39:06 UTC (over 3 years ago)
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.

This release includes new functionality to allow parsing of simple types
without the overhead of the full decoder. In addition, it adds support
for several new ASN.1 string types.

* Noteworthy changes in release 3.1 (released 2012-11-24) [stable]
- Completed rename of types:
  ASN1_ARRAY_TYPE -> asn1_static_node (was asn1_static_node_t)
- Added new types: VisibleString, NumericString, IA5String,
  TeletexString, PrintableString, UniversalString, BMPString,
  UTF8String. When re-defined a warning is being print instead of
  failing.
- Parser outputs more detailed syntax error messages.
- Added asn1_decode_simple_der() and asn1_encode_simple_der().
- Added asn1_read_value_type() to return value and type.
- Introduced ASN1_ETYPE_UTC_TIME and ASN1_ETYPE_GENERALIZED_TIME
