I am pleased to announce the availability of GNU SASL version 0.2.13!

GNU SASL is a modern C library that implement the standard network
security protocol Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL).
The framework and a couple of common SASL mechanisms are implemented.
GNU SASL can be used by network applications for IMAP, SMTP and
similar protocols to provide authentication services (and more).

Noteworthy changes in gsasl since version 0.2.12:

** Update of gnulib files.
Further improves portability to MinGW.

** Various improvements in the manuals.

** The tests are run under valgrind, if it is installed.
Use --disable-valgrind-tests to unconditionally disable this.  It is
disabled by default for cross compiles.

** Various minor fixes.

Noteworthy changes in libgsasl since version 0.2.12:

** Update of gnulib files.
Further improves portability to MinGW.

** Fix memory leak in gsasl_client_listmech and gsasl_server_listmech.

** Configure fixes, for portability.

** API and ABI modifications.
No changes since last version.
