Consider this a release candidate for a stable v1.4.  The most
significant change is to make SCRAM-SHA-1 preferred over CRAM-MD5 and

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

Top-level NEWS entries:

** doc: Fix doc/cyclo/ output.

Library (lib/) NEWS entries:

** Fix Visual Studio project files to work with SCRAM.
Suggested by Lothar May <address@hidden> in

** 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 AB, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding GNU SASL
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
projects.  See for more details.

The project's web page is available at:
