GNU SASL 0.0.10 alpha
This is a "brown paper bag release" to fix an important problem
discovered in version 0.0.9.
GNU SASL is an implementation of the Simple Authentication and
Security Layer framework and a few common SASL mechanisms. SASL is
used by network servers (e.g., IMAP, SMTP) to request
authentication from clients, and in clients to authenticate against
GNU SASL contains a library (`libgsasl'), a command line utility
(`gsasl') to access the library from the shell, and a manual. The
library includes support for the SASL framework (with
authentication functions and application data privacy and integrity
functions) and at least partial support for the CRAM-MD5, EXTERNAL,
GSSAPI, ANONYMOUS, PLAIN, SECURID, DIGEST-MD5, LOGIN, NTLM and
GNU SASL is licensed under the GNU General Public License.

Noteworthy changes since the last release:
- The CRAM-MD5 server now reject invalid passwords. The logic
flaw was introduced in 0.0.9, after blindly making code changes to
shut up valgrind just before the release.
- Various build improvements. Pkg-config is no longer needed.
GTK-DOC is only used if present.
