PyCrypto 2.3 has been released.  This is a minor bugfix release.

This release remains compatible with Python 2.1 through 2.7.  (Python 3.x is not yet supported.)  A C99 compiler may be required.

You can download this release from http://www.pycrypto.org/, you can ask for it in the cheeseshop, and it has the following SHA256 sums:

495f68eb37150ead7c778671311975edcc177845a7f019e4e96011678b30666f *pycrypto-2.3.tar.gz

Please test it and post your experiences to the PyCrypto mailing list:

      pycrypto at lists.dlitz.net

and/or file bug reports on Launchpad:


Here is the changelog:

- Fix NameError when attempting to use deprecated getRandomNumber() 

- _slowmath: Compute RSA u parameter when it's not given to RSA.construct. 
   This makes _slowmath behave the same as _fastmath in this regard.

- Make RSA.generate raise a more user-friendly exception message when the 
   user tries to generate a bogus-length key.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this release possible!

- Dwayne
