1 June 21 2003:
2 - Corrected some bug in configure, which now works perfectly
3 in solaris. Patch by Dustin Mitchell <dustin@ywlcs.org>
4
5 March 08 2003: (version 2.5.7)
6 - The mcrypt_symb.c file is generated only when needed. This should
7 fix some problems in systems with incompatible sed.
8
9 January 19 2003: (version 2.5.6)
10 - Fixes in win32 detection and DLL building.
11 - Fixes for solaris (a symbol was not exported)
12 - Corrected bug which made algorithm symbols to be inserted
13 twice in symbol table.
14 - panama algorithm was removed
15
16 December 22 2002: (version 2.5.5)
17 - Better win32 detection and DLL building.
18 - Changed some variables names in gost.c to allow compiling
19 with gcc and K6 optimizations.
20 - Some buffer overrun checks on input. Patches and suggestions
21 by Ilia A. <ilia@prohost.org>
22 - Made the default behaviour to include all algorithms into
23 the main library, instead of using dynamic modules. Dynamic
24 loading is disabled by default. The --enable-dynamic-loading flag
25 can be used in the configure script, to get the old behaviour.
26 - Some fixes in ECB mode.
27

106 - Corrected bugs in blowfish and blowfish-compat
107
108 January 23th 2001: (version 2.4.9-beta)
109 - Due to an endianness handling problem Blowfish algorithm was not compatible
110 with other implementations. Now it has been corrected. If you want
111 to access the old algorithm used use the "blowfish-compat" module.

113 Jonathan Woolmington <jwool@ind.tansu.com.au>
114 - Fixes in stream mode.
115 - mcrypt_generic_init() no longer fails if smaller key is used. It uses
116 the most appropriate key size of the algorithm and pads with zeros.
117 - Fixes in wake algorithm (and support for IV).
118 - IV is now used in arcfour (arcfour-iv is now longer used). Speedups in Arcfour.

144 - Changes in the documentation
145
146 March 19th, 2000: (version 2.4.0)
147 - Corrected bugs in the extra algorithms.
148 - Libmcrypt is now thread safe without need for posix thread locks.
149 - Libmcrypt is no longer compatible with 2.2 or 2.3 version.
150 - Speedups in the library.
151 - The crypt algorithm has changed. In order for it's output to be compatible
152 with the unix crypt output, the key must be generated using crypt(3).
153 This was made in order to remove the key transformation, which was
154 included in the algorithm.
155 - The crypt algorithm was renamed to enigma.
156 - Changed many function's names in order to minimize namespace polution.

173 for mcrypt 2.5.0 to be able to compile against that series of libmcrypt.
174
175 February 22, 2000:
176 - mcrypt_is_block_algorithm_mode(), mcrypt_is_block_mode(),
177 mcrypt_is_block_algorithm(), functions were added.

182 Libmcrypt seems to compile fine.
183
184 January 21st, 2000:
185 - Locks were added to libltdl calls so libmcrypt is still thread safe.
186
187 January 20th, 2000: (version 2.3.0)
188 - Tried to include libltdl. Not succesful yet. It compiles but it does
189 not work.

215 - Corrections in the panama algorithm, in order to work fine in big-endian
216 machines.
217
218 November 29th, 1999:
219 - encrypt() function crypt.c was renamed to __encrypt() in order to compile
220 in some systems.
221 - version number is included in the modules.
222 - mcrypt_list_algorithms(), mcrypt_list_modes() and mcrypt_list_keygen() now
223 check if the file is an mcrypt module (has the _mcrypt_xxx_version function).
224
225 November 28th, 1999:
226 - MARS was added (as a separate module)
227
228 November 26th, 1999:

232 name.
233 - Documentation was updated.
234

237 __setkey() to keep some libcs happy.
238 - Corrected typo mistakes in twofish.c.
239 - Patched wake.c to work in bigendian machines.
240 - IDEA, RC4, RC6 which were non-free now are in a separate distribution.

244 des(1).
245
246 November 20th, 1999:

254 November 13th, 1999:
255 - Blowfish algorithm was changed, it is now compatible with other implementations.
256 - Accessing algorithms is now different. You do not specify TWOFISH_256, to
257 access TWOFISH algorithm with 256 bit key, but TWOFISH with keylength of
258 32 bytes (==256 bits). This is more flexible than the previous API since
259 you can access more keys.
260
261 October 16th, 1999:
262 - The new API is completed.
263 - STREAM mode was added.

282
283 September 20th, 1999:
284 - Fixes in RC2, RC6 and SAFER+ code, so they work the same way in
285 big-endian and little-endian machines.
286 - Porting of SERPENT, MARS and RIJNDAEL is not ready, they do
287 not work right in bigendian machines.
288 - Bugfixes in the tests. Tests failed if one or two algorithms failed.
289
290 September 19th, 1999
291 - SERPENT was added in 128,192,256 key modes.
292
293 September 15th, 1999
294 - MARS and RIJNDAEL were added in 128,192,256 key modes.
295 - RC6 was splitted to RC6_128, RC6_192 and RC6_256 (the old RC6 is equal to RC6_256)
296 - RC2 was splitted to RC2_128, RC2_256 and RC2_1024 (the old RC2 is equal to RC2_1024)
297
298 September 14th, 1999
299 - Twofish code was changed. Now it uses Dr Brian Gladman's code.
300 - RC2 code was changed.
301
302 June 26th, 1999
303 - buffer overflow fixed in lib/mcrypt.c. Pointed out by Don Sutherland <dss@yadda.net>
304
305 June 23th, 1999
306 - RC2 code was cleared.
307 - RC6 was changed according to the specification. It is RC6 32/20/32.
308 RC6, SAFER+, LOKI97 and CAST-256 codes are actually Dr Brian Gladman's
309 code a bit modified for mcrypt.
310 - shared library version has changed (at last!)
311
312 June 22th, 1999
313 - SAFER+, LOKI97 and CAST-256 Added.
314
315 June 15th, 1999 - Version 2.2
316 - Changes in the xTEA algorithm. Some extra parenthesis made the algorithm
317 differ from the specification. Pointed out by Lars Nordentoft
318 <lntech@post9.tele.dk>. Read the README.xtea for more information.
319
320 June 12th, 1999 - Version 2.1.1
321 - Changes in the documentation which was inaccurate.
322
323 June 11th, 1999 - Version 2.1
324 - _mcrypt_ was placed as a prefix to all internal functions so they
325 do not pollute namespace.
326
327 May 29th, 1999
328 - test suites added
329 - Blowfish was divided to blowfish-448, -256, -192, -128.
330 - CBC can now accept IV
331 - mlock and munlock is used before mallocing and freeing any memory,
332 thus if such capabilities exist the library guarrantees that no
333 password is written in the disk (as swap etc.)
334 - gen_key_md5() was added and gen_key() was renamed to gen_key_sha1()
335 gen_key() is still defined to be gen_keysha1().
336
337 May 26th, 1999 - Version 2.0
338 - Documentation was incorrect and innacurate. Corrected.
339 - A #define WORDS_BIGENDIAN 0 was removed from acconfig.h, this
340 was confusing all the library headers, and thus the library was
341 useless.
342 - nbit-ofb mode added. n is the blocksize of the algorithm. Still
343 experimental.
344
345 May 24th, 1999 - Version 1.93
346 - defined get_block_size to be mcrypt_get_block_size so php3.0.8 compiles ok
347
348 May 17th, 1999 - Version 1.9
349 - gen_key() changed
350 - libtool support (based on Sascha Schumann's patches)
