GNU SASL 0.2.19

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).

Since version 0.2.17, GNU SASL is developed using Git instead of CVS.  A
public git mirror is available from <>.

* Version 0.2.19 (released 2007-08-09)

** Command-line tools, examples, etc are now licensed under the
** GPL version 3 (or later).

** Updated documentation as per license change.

** Update gnulib files.

** Update translations.

** New API gsasl_free to release memory allocated by other functions.
This is useful on Windows where libgsasl uses one CRT and the
application uses another CRT.  Then malloc/free will not use the same
heap.  This happens if you build libgsasl using mingw32 and the
application with Visual Studio.  Suggested by Adam Strzelecki

** API and ABI modifications.
gsasl_free: ADD.

Improving GNU SASL is costly, but you can help!  We are looking for
organizations that find GNU SASL useful and wish to contribute back.
You can contribute by reporting bugs, improve the software, purchase
support contracts, or donate money or equipment.

Commercial support contracts for GNU SASL are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding GNU SASL
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
projects.  See for more details.
