Log Message:
Update to 1.4.0:

Noteworthy changes in version 1.4.0 (2007-12-10)

 * New configure option --disable-padlock-support which is mostly
   useful in case of build problems.

Noteworthy changes in version 1.3.2 (2007-12-03)

 * The visibility attribute is now used if supported by the toolchain.

 * The ACE engine of VIA processors is now used for AES-128.

 * The ASN.1 DER template for SHA-224 has been fixed.

Noteworthy changes in version 1.3.1 (2007-10-26)

 * The entire library is now under the LGPL. The helper programs and
   the manual are under the GPL.  Kudos to Peter Gutmann for giving
   permissions to relicense the rndw32 and rndunix modules.

 * The Camellia cipher is now under the LGPL and included by default.

 * Fixed a bug in the detection of symbol prefixes which inhibited the
   build of optimzied assembler code on certain systems.

 * Updated the entropy gatherer for W32.

Noteworthy changes in version 1.3.0 (2007-05-04)

 * Changed the way the RNG gets initialized. This allows to keep it
   uninitialized as long as no random numbers are used.  To override
   this, the new macro gcry_fast_random_poll may be used.  It is in
   general a good idea to spread this macro into the application code
   to make sure that these polls happen often enough.

 * Made the RNG immune against fork without exec.

 * Reading and writing the random seed file is now protected by a
   fcntl style file lock on systems that provide this function.

 * Support for SHA-224 and HMAC using SHA-384 and SHA-512.

 * Support for the SEED cipher.

 * Support for the Camellia cipher.  Note that Camellia is disabled by
   default, and that enabling it changes the license of libgcrypt from
   LGPL to GPL.

 * Support for OFB encryption mode.

 * gcry_mpi_rshift does not anymore truncate the shift count.

 * Reserved algorithm ranges for use by applications.

 * Support for DSA2.

 * The new function gcry_md_debug should be used instead of the
   gcry_md_start_debug and gcry_md_stop_debug macros.

 * New configure option --enable-random-daemon to support a system
   wide random daemon.  The daemon code is experimental and not yet
   very well working.  It will eventually allow to keep a global
   random pool for the sake of short living processes.

 * Non executable stack support is now used by default on systems
   supporting it.

 * Support for Microsoft Windows.

 * Assembler support for the AMD64 architecture.

 * New configure option --enable-mpi-path for optimized builds.

 * Experimental support for ECDSA; should only be used for testing.

 * New control code GCRYCTL_PRINT_CONFIG to print the build

 * Minor changes to some function declarations.  Buffer arguments are
   now typed as void pointer.  This should not affect any compilation.
   Fixed two bugs in return values and clarified documentation.

 * Interface changes relative to the 1.2.0 release:
