1 0.2.0 (2020)
2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~
3 The highlight of this release is the switch from sha1 to sha256 as
4 the default hash algorithm. sha1 is still supported for backward
5 compatibility. That is, libosl-0.2.0 can still open tables which
6 were created with an older version of the library. No adjustments
7 are necessary on the user side, so it should be safe to upgrade.

9 Instead of gengetopt we now employ the option parser of the lopsub
10 library for oslfsck(1). Hence lopsub becomes a dependency while
11 gengetopt is no longer required to build the package.

13 The release also features a couple of documentation improvements and
14 a fair number of fixes for the build system.
15
16 Moreover, we got rid of doxygen in favor of a simple m4 script
17 (shipped) to generate the public header file and the html code for
18 the API documentation. Hence m4 becomes a dependency while doxygen
19 is no longer needed.

21 Finally, the release drops support for SunOS and MacOS. The code has
22 not been tested on these operating systems for a decade and was likely
23 broken anyway.
