Sequoia v0.18.0 released

By Justus | August 1, 2020

We have just released version 0.18.0 of Sequoia. The release includes the low-level crate sequoia-openpgp, a program to verify detached signatures geared towards software distribution systems called sqv, and a commandline frontend for Sequoia implementing the Stateless OpenPGP Command Line Interface called sqop.

If you use Sequoia, please port your code to the latest version and report any problems you encounter. Thank you.

Notable changes

We are in the process of stabilizing the API of the low-level sequoia-openpgp crate. To that end, we’re going over our documentation, writing more documentation and examples, and slightly amending the API to make it more consistent and easier to use.

Besides that and numerous little improvements, we fixed a bug in the parser, made certificates created using the CertificateBuilder more compatible with other implementations, and prepared Sequoia for more cryptographic backends.
