encrypt 2013.11.01

Following on from the previous post, which explained that the latest version of libgcrypt no longer had a couple of functions that were use to get a list of supported algorithms, we have an updated version of encrypt that overcomes this. Currently this issue only affects GUN/Linux systems (Arch/Debian/Fedora), but it could manifest itself in OS X (if/when Homebrew updates its version of libgcrypt) so we'll see about rebuilding that edition too.

Neither the Android nor Windows editions are effected.

The latest binary packages are available from the downloads directory as normal.

Until next time,

libgcrypt 1.6.0

It looks like the latest version of libgcrypt (1.6.0) is incompatible with encrypt. The functions for getting a list of supported algorithms (both cipher and hash) have been removed/renamed. This is currently limited to GNU/Linux systems, although it could soon affect Macs (as and when libgcrypt is updated in Homebrew).

I suppose this might persuade us to specify exact version numbers in the list of dependencies (but we'll see).

We should be able to rewrite encrypt to make use of the newer version of the library, and will release an update for GNU/Linux systems as soon as possible - hopefully this coming weekend.

Sorry for any inconvenience,
Ash
