Name        : bouncycastle-mail
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.44
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.bouncycastle.org/
Summary     : S/MIME and CMS libraries for Bouncy Castle
Description :
Bouncy Castle consists of a lightweight cryptography API and is a provider
for the Java Cryptography Extension and the Java Cryptography Architecture.
This library package offers additional classes, in particuar
generators/processors for S/MIME and CMS, for Bouncy Castle.

Update Information:

This release adds support for encrypted EC keys in OpenSSL, support for PSS
signatures to CMS and S/MIME and support for 4 additional MAC lengths (96, 104,
112, 120) to GCMBlockCipher. Performance of GCM mode is now around 10x faster,
and workarounds have been added to the provider to allow support for ECDH with
the JSSE. Bug fixes include GeneralisedTime now calculates the date correctly in
the case of a time including micro seconds, occasional uses of "private final"
on methods were causing issues in some J2ME environments have been removed, the
micAlg for an S/MIME signed message now checks the previous signer list if
previous signers have been added to the message. In addition, a regression that
meant that the J2ME SecureRandom was not always using common seed material has
been removed and the handling of explicit CommandMap objects with the generation
of S/MIME messages has been improved.    For further details on changes and
enhancements please see  http://www.bouncycastle.org/releasenotes.html
