libtomcrypt 1.18.0 RC5

Hello everybody,

okay, now it should really be the last Release Candidate of libtomcrypt 1.18, Number 5.

[crypt-1.18.0-rc5.tar.xz] [tar.xz.asc]

[] [zip.asc]

Here’s the list with the biggest changes since RC4.

  • The ABI version/SONAME had to be bumped to 1:0 after Dan Fandrich of Mageia Linux pointed out that the ABI is incompatible to 1.17. But this release should still be a more or less drop-in update from 1.17 (but it requires re-compiling and re-linking).
  • Rob Swindell discovered an issue when rsa_import()‘ing keys where we would use a lot too much memory. This lead to a bigger PR which also removed the MIN_RSA_SIZE and MAX_RSA_SIZE macros…
  • makefile.shared can now also be used on cygwin.

Again, if you’re having issues with the RC5 you know where to report: [ML] or [GitHub].
