User-agent: Gnus/5.130003 (Ma Gnus v0.3) Emacs/24.0.94 (gnu/linux)

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 2.12 (2012-03-19) [stable]
- Cleanup license headers.
- build: Update gnulib files.
- Corrected DER decoding issue (reported by Matthew Hall).
  Added self check to detect the problem, see tests/Test_overflow.c.
  This problem can lead to at least remotely triggered crashes, see
  further analysis on the libtasn1 mailing list.
