I am pleased to announce the release of M2Crypto 0.04. This release
offers the following:

-   Based on OpenSSL 0.9.5. Tested on FreeBSD, Linux and Win NT.

-   Much improved SSL:

        -   SSL certificate-based client authentication with 
        callbacks in Python.

        -   An interface to create SSL sessions. An SSL session 
        caches security parameters negotiated during SSL/TLS handshaking. 
        Many SSL connections can be instantiated over an SSL session; 
        this reduces the frequency of expensive public-key cryptographic 
        operations and thereby improves performance.

        -   More robust SSL socket implementation - raises Python 
        exceptions, not dumps core. (Mostly. ;-)

-   S/MIME: signs, encrypts, decrypts, verifies. 

-   More X.509 certificate manipulation, in support of PyCA.

-   Various bug fixes and minor enhancements.

Thanks to Ray Soursa <res at loudcloud.com>, Johannes Stezenbach 
<yawyi at gmx.net>, Michael Ströder <michael.stroeder at inka.de> and 
others for bug reports and suggestions.
