This is a quick release for the transition from CVS to Git.

The release doesn't contain any real changes, to simplify review between
the old CVS repository and the new Git repository.

The home page has been updated with links to the git repository etc....
below is your regular announcement.

Libidn is a modern library to perform internationalized string
processing based on the Stringprep, Punycode, Internationalizing Domain
Names in Applications (IDNA) specifications.  Libidn contains interfaces
for C (which can be used in C++), Java, C# and Emacs Lisp.

* Version 0.6.14 (released 2007-05-31)

** Libidn is now developed using Git instead of CVS.
A public git mirror is available from
<>.  If you have pulled from this
repository before this release, you need to erase your clone because
it has been re-generated from scratch.

** API and ABI is backwards compatible with the previous version.

The library contains a generic Stringprep implementation that does
Unicode 3.2 NFKC normalization, mapping and prohibitation of characters,
and bidirectional character handling.  Profiles for Nameprep, iSCSI,
SASL and XMPP are included.  Punycode and ASCII Compatible Encoding
(ACE) via IDNA are supported.  A mechanism to define Top-Level Domain
(TLD) specific validation tables, and to compare strings against those
tables, is included.  Default tables for some TLDs are also included.
Finally, the library can detect "problem sequences" that may trigger
bugs in various NFKC implementations.

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

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