ANN: yawPyCrypto 0.1 and Flatten 0.2

    -----------

    yawPyCrypto is "yet another wrapper" for the PyCrypto library written by
    Andrew M. Kuchling and others. It aims at more complete support for the
    whole range of cryptographic functionality available in PyCrypto, while
    still offering an easy to use interface.

    There has been quite a jump from version 0.0alpha4, which was the last
    version I posted, to version 0.1. There have been major code cleanups,
    factorizations, and other important changes. The strong points of
    yawPyCrypto at the moment are:

    1. Full support for the public key ciphers of PyCrypto in a single
    class.
    2. Full support for all cipher algorithms of PyCrypto in a single class,
    which allow for stream encryption using block ciphers.
    3. Fully and easily extensible with user functionality through a plugin
    interface (which isn't documented yet).

    What's still missing from the functionality that was present in
    0.0alpha4 but isn't cleaned up yet:

    1. Full support for GPG-like stream encryption using block ciphers with
    session keys (session key support is present in the crypto cipher
    classes, but the stream format of a GPG-like stream needs cleaning up).

    The last point will be cleaned up in a maintenance release in about
    three days.

    yawPyCrypto now depends on

    Flatten
    -------

    A Python serialization library which aims at offering a secure pickling
    algorithm, especially well suited for network transport of data. This
    library offers a few other gimmicks which I found no other serializer
    could offer me, such as a unique way of reconstructing stored instances
    with type-checking of operands implemented directly in the serialization
    code.

    Flatten 0.2 is basically a maintenance release which supersedes Flatten
    0.1, which was released about a month ago. The functionality has not
    been changed, except that a little bug concerning the handling of None
    in pickles was fixed, and finally the package comes with a distutils
    script.
