> Hi,
>
> We have released a new version of the Loudmouth XMPP library: 1.5.1
>
> The upstream Loudmouth repository has not been updated for a while, and
> since
> our repository is the only one getting some updates, we have been requested
> several times to make real releases.
>
> Mikael Hallendal (from the Loudmouth team) agreed [*], so here is the first
> release by the mcabber community.
>   *: https://github.com/mcabber/loudmouth/issues/13
>
> Loudmouth is a small C library for writing Jabber clients written using
> GLib. It's designed to be extensible while maintaining ease of use.
>
> There have been many changes since the previous official release (1.4.3
> was published 7 years ago and 1.5.0 was released by Engine Yard in early
> 2009
> but wasn't uploaded to GNOME's FTP servers and never made it into the main
> distributions).
>
> Here is a very very short list of the main changes since 1.5.0:
>
> - This Loudmouth release is compatible with current Glib/GTK libraries
> - The internal asyncns copy has been removed
> - The security has been improved in several ways:
>   - Certificates: added checking of SAN(s) when CN does not match and
> fixed CN
>     wildcard handling
>   - SSL 2 and 3 have been deactivated; TLS 1.1 and 1.2 have been activated
>   - Use the default cipher suite of GnuTLS
>   - New API: Implementation of lm_ssl_set_ca and lm_ssl_set_cipher_list
>     This enables the application to choose additional CA certificates to
> trust
>     as well as the cipher suites which are used by OpenSSL or GnuTLS
> - Many resolver and parser issues have been fixed
>
> Also, a Lua interface for Loudmouth has been written and is
> available at http://www.isbear.org.ua/docs/lua-lm/index/
>
>
> The release traball is available at
>  https://mcabber.com/files/loudmouth/loudmouth-1.5.1.tar.bz2
>
> See the directory for the details:
