[Openswan Users] ANNOUNCE: x509-1.5.2 for freeswan-2.05 released

openswan-2.0.0 contains version 1.4.8 of the X.509 patch which is dated
from November 2003. The latest version 1.5.2 of the X.509 patch adds a
full-fledged OCSP client and the support of Notify payloads.

Since the Openswan project is currently moving at a very sluggish pace
I decided to base my latest release on both freeswan-2.04 and freeswan-2.05
since I can do the integration against those platforms very easily. With
openswan-2.0.0 this is currently not the case because the integrated
X.509 source code has been mutilated by various #ifdefs so that differential
patches against my code base won't match any more. As soon as the Openswan
team decides to remove those #ifdefs I will be able to provide differential
patches against openswan-2.0.0, too. Otherwise it will be up to the Openswan
team to do the integration of the new features themselves.

x509-1.5.2-freeswan-2.04 runs with the native IPsec stack on a
Linux 2.6.0 kernel. I haven't tested it on 2.6.2 yet.

Kind regards
