 - Transparent software key generation has been removed from OpenSC
 - Linking against libopensc has been deprecated
 - This release fixes CVE-2010-4523, a security issue where specially crafted rogue smart cards can
   be used to execute arbitrary code.

- OpenSC Features -
 - Support for generation, import and use of RSA keys up to 2048 bits.
  - Partial GOST algorithms support with OpenSSL 1.0.0 and later
 - Supports SHA1, SHA-256, SHA-512, MD5 and RIPEMD160 hashing
 - Multi-platform PKCS#11 v2.20 module for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.
 - Works with supported cards in native Mac OS X applications (Safari, etc)
  - Through open source OpenSC.tokend
 - Support for all recent smart card readers, by default via PC/SC.
  - Optionally through CT-API or OpenCT.
 - Multi-platform support for modern pinpad readers with PC/SC v2 compatible drivers
  - Works with open source pcsc-lite and CCID driver
NB! Actual features depend on used hardware and software versions!

- Notes to packagers -
 - Linking against libopensc is not encouraged; OpenSC no longer installs header files.
  - Developer packages (-dev/-devel) should be removed. Developers are encouraged to use
    either PKCS#11 for cryptographic purposes or pcsc-lite for direct smart card access.
 - Only a single reader layer can be enabled at compile time. The default is PC/SC. Packagers
   and distros are encouraged to compile with pcsc-lite support by default. See OpenSC
   ticket #216 for more information:
 - mozilla-opensc plugin has been discontinued. This removes libassuan dependency.
 - Please report issues to [hidden email]

Known issues will be gathered to the OpenSC wiki (with additional technical details) as they are discovered.

Thanks to all contributors!
