and/or file bug reports on Launchpad:


Here is the changelog:

   * Added PKCS#1 encryption schemes (v1.5 and OAEP).  We now have
     a decent, easy-to-use non-textbook RSA implementation.  Yay!

   * Added PKCS#1 signature schemes (v1.5 and PSS). v1.5 required some
     extensive changes to Hash modules to contain the algorithm specific
     ASN.1 OID. To that end, we now always have a (thin) Python module to
     hide the one in pure C.

   * Added 2 standard Key Derivation Functions (PBKDF1 and PBKDF2).

   * Added export/import of RSA keys in OpenSSH and PKCS#8 formats.

   * Added password-protected export/import of RSA keys (one old method
     for PKCS#8 PEM only).

   * Added ability to generate RSA key pairs with configurable public
     exponent e.

   * Added ability to construct an RSA key pair even if only the private
     exponent d is known, and not p and q.

   * Added SHA-2 C source code (fully from Lorenz Quack).

   * Unit tests for all the above.

   * Updates to documentation (both inline and in Doc/pycrypt.rst)

   * All of the above changes were put together by Legrandin (Thanks!)

   * Minor bug fixes (setup.py and tests).

Thanks to everyone who helped make this release possible, especially to
Legrandin, who did most of the work.
