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 (including
SCRAM-SHA-1) are implemented.  GNU SASL can be used by network
applications for IMAP, SMTP, XMPP and similar protocols to provide
authentication services.

NEWS entries:

** gsasl: Don't crash after getpass() on Mac OS X.
Reported by Wim Lewis <address@hidden>.

** gsasl: Ignore untagged responses during IMAP authentication.
Patch from Enrico Scholz <address@hidden>.

** tests: Disable the test-poll self-test, it doesn't seem to work on Solaris.
Reported by Dagobert Michelsen <address@hidden>.

** libgsasl: Implement OPENID20 mechanism for OpenID authentication.
Following draft-ietf-kitten-sasl-openid-03.

** Demand gettext >= 0.18.1 in order to get newer M4 files.
The old M4 files associated with 0.17 caused problems on Solaris,
which will hopefully be fixed with this.  Reported by Dagobert
Michelsen <address@hidden>.

** build: Added MinGW build script for Windows binaries, windows/

** doc: Typo fix in autoconf snippet.

** i18n: Updated translations.

** examples: Added client-xmpp-saml20 and server-xmpp-saml20.
The examples illustrates a sample SAML20 client and server.

** libgsasl.pc: Add a Libs.private.

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.
