GNU SASL 0.2.20

From: Simon Josefsson
Subject: GNU SASL 0.2.20

User-agent: Gnus/5.110007 (No Gnus v0.7) Emacs/22.1 (gnu/linux)

I forgot the bump the shared library version in the last release, so
this is a brown paper bag release...  it also contains another
build-related fix.  Please ignore the last release.

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 0.2.20 (released 2007-08-11)

** Correctly increment the shared library version.
I forgot to increment it in the last release, to indicate that a new
API/ABI was added.

** If GSS-API and GS2 are disabled, don't bother linking to a GSS-API library.
Reported by Maxim Britov <address@hidden>.

** Update gnulib files.

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

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.
