[announce-crypto] Bouncy Castle Crypto Provider Package version 1.29 now available

Jon Eaves
Hi all,

Yet another release of the BC libraries.

     * HMac-SHA384 and HMac-SHA512 were not IETF compliant. This has been fixed.
     *   The equals() method on ElGamalKeyParameters and DHKeyParameters in the
        lightweight API would sometimes return false when it should return true.
        This has been fixed.
     * Parse error for OpenSSL style PEM encoded certificate requests in the
        PEMReader has been fixed.
     * PGPPublicKey.getValidDays() now checks for the relevant signature for version
        4 and later keys as well as using the version 3 key valid days field.
     * ISO9796 signatures for full recovered messsages could incorrectly verify
        for similar messages in some circumstances. This has been fixed.
     * The occasional problem with decrypting PGP messages containing compressed
        streams now appears to be fixed.

     * Support has been added for the OIDs and key generation required for
        HMac-SHA224, HMac-SHA256, HMac-SHA384, and HMac-SHA512.
     * SignerInformation will used default implementation of message digest if
        signature provider doesn't support it.
     * The provider and the lightweight API now support the GOST-28147-94 MAC algorithm.
     * Headers are now settable for PGP armored output streams.

     * The old versions of HMac-SHA384 and HMac-SHA512 can be invoked as
        OldHMacSHA384 and OldHMacSHA512, or by using the OldHMac class in the
        lightweight API.

As usual, the latest releases can be found at :

http://www.bouncycastle.org/

And for those who like living on the bleeding edge, the betas can be downloaded from:

http://www.bouncycastle.org/betas/

Please note, make sure that beta feedback is sent to the [hidden email]
address, and not the general mailing list (dev-crypto)

Cheers,
     -- jon
