PolarSSL ChangeLog
= Version trunk
* Added additional Cipher Block Modes to symmetric ciphers
(AES CTR, Camellia CTR, XTEA CBC) including the option to
enable and disable individual modes when needed
* Major argument / variable rewrite. Introduced use of size_t
instead of int for buffer lengths and loop variables for
better unsigned / signed use
= Version 0.99-pre4 released on 2011-04-01
* Added support for PKCS#1 v2.1 encoding and thus support
for the RSAES-OAEP and RSASSA-PSS operations.
* Reading of Public Key files incorporated into default x509
functionality as well.
* Added mpi_fill_random() for centralized filling of big numbers
with random data (Fixed ticket #10)
* Debug print of MPI now removes leading zero octets and
displays actual bit size of the value.
* x509parse_key() (and as a consequence x509parse_keyfile())
does not zeroize memory in advance anymore. Use rsa_init()
before parsing a key or keyfile!
* Debug output of MPI's now the same independent of underlying
platform (32-bit / 64-bit) (Fixes ticket #19, found by Mads
Kiilerich and Mihai Militaru)
* Fixed bug in ssl_write() when flushing old data (Fixed ticket
#18, found by Nikolay Epifanov)

length salt lengths

are now supported as well (Fixes ticket #5)

printing of X509 CRLs from file
