GNU SASL is a modern C library that implement the standard network
security protocol Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL).  The
framework itself and a couple of common SASL mechanisms are implemented.
GNU SASL can be used by network applications for IMAP, SMTP, XMPP and
similar protocols to provide authentication services.  Support for the
more recent SCRAM-SHA-1, OPENID20 and SAML20 mechanisms is included.

* Version 1.8.0 (released 2012-05-28) [stable]

** This is a new major stable release.  Brief changes compared to 1.6.x:

*** SAML20 support following RFC 6595.

*** OPENID20 support following RFC 6616.

*** Added SMTP server examples (for e.g., SCRAM, SAML20, OPENID20).

*** Various cleanups, portability and other bug fixes.
See the NEWS entries during the 1.7.x branch for details.

** The API and ABI is fully backwards compatible with version 1.6.x.

Improving GNU SASL is costly, but you can help!  We are looking for
organizations that find GNU SASL useful and wish to contribute back.
You can contribute by reporting bugs, improve the software, purchase
support contracts, or donate money or equipment.

Commercial support contracts for GNU SASL are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult AB, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding GNU SASL
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
projects.  See http://josefsson.org/ for more details.
