I am pleased to announce the beta release of obfuscate 0.2.2b.

The beta release does not contain any new functionality from the previous 
version, but includes bug fixes and many new tests.

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

obfuscate includes the following ciphers:
 - Caesar, rot13, rot5, rot18, rot47
 - atbash
 - Playfair, Playfair6 and Playfair16
 - Railfence (encryption only)
 - Keyword
 - Affine
 - Vigenere
 - frob (xor)

and others.

DISCLAIMER: obfuscate is not cryptographically strong, and should not be
used where high security is required. (The ciphers provided in obfuscate
may have been state of the art centuries ago, but should not be used where
strong encryption is required.

obfuscate is released under the MIT licence.

Requires Python 2.5 or 2.6.
