I am pleased to announce the first stable release of obfuscate, 
version 0.2.2.

obfuscate is a pure-Python module providing classical encryption
algorithms suitable for obfuscating and unobfuscating text.

This is a maintenance release of back-end and API changes but no new 
ciphers. This should be considered the first stable API for obfuscate.

obfuscate includes the following ciphers:
- rot13, rot5, rot18, rot47
- atbash
- Caesar cipher
- Keyword
- Affine
- Playfair, Playfair6, Playfair16
- frob (xor)
- Vigenere
- RailFence
- plus others.

DISCLAIMER: obfuscate is not cryptographically strong, and should not be
used where high security is required.

obfuscate is released under the MIT licence.

Requires Python 2.5 or 2.6.
