I would like to annouce the first release of the Haskell Cryptographic
Library (0.2.0). See http://www.haskell.org/crypto/ReadMe.html for more
details.

This library collects together existing Haskell cryptographic functions and
augments them so that they:

        Have common type signatures.
        Can be used with the standard mode and padding algorithms (in the
case of block mode ciphers).

This very initial release contains:

        DES
        Blowfish
        Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode
        PKCS#5 and nulls padding
