NEWS for OpenSC -- History of user visible changes

Complete change history is available online:
http://www.opensc-project.org/opensc/timeline

New in 0.12.0; 2010-12-22
* OpenSC uses a single reader driver, specified at compile time.
* New card driver: Italian eID (CNS) by Emanuele Pucciarelli.
* New card driver: Portuguese eID by João Poupino.
* New card driver: westcos by François Leblanc.
* pkcs11-tool can use a slot based on ID, label or index in the slot list.
* PIN flags are updated from supported cards when C_GetTokenInfo is called.
* Support for CardOS 4.4 cards added.
* Fature to exclude readers from OpenSC PKCS#11 via "ignored_readers"
  configuration file entry.
* #229: Support semi-automatic fixes to cards personalized with older and
  broken OpenSC versions.
* Software keys removed from pkcs15-init and the PKCS#11 module. OpenSC
  can either generate keys on card or import plaintext keys to the card, but
  will never generate plaintext key material in software by itself.
  All traces of a software token (PKCS#15 Section 7) shall be removed.
* Updates to PC/SC driver to build with pcsc-lite >= 1.6.2
* Build script for a binary Mac OS X installer for 10.5 and 10.6 systems.
  Binary installer includes OpenSC.tokend for platform integration.
  10.6 installer includes engine_pkcs11.
* Modify Rutoken S binary interfaces by Aktiv Co.
* Support GOST R 34.10-2001 and GOST R 34.11-94 by Aktiv Co.
* CardOS driver now emulates sign on rsa keys with sign+decrypt usage
  with padding and decrypt(). This is compatible with old cards and
  card initialized by Siemens software. Removed "--split-key" option,
  as it is no longer needed.
* Improved debugging support: debug level 3 will show everything
  except of ASN1 and card matching debugging (usualy not needed).
* Massive changes to libopensc. This library is now internal, only
  used by opensc-pkcs11.so and command line tools. Header files are
  no longer installed, library should not be used by other applications.
  Please use generic PKCS#11 interface instead.
* #include file statements cleaned up: first include "config.h", then
  system headers, then additional libraries, then headers in opensc
  (but from other directories), then header files from same directory.
  Fix path to reference headers, remove src/include/ directory.
* Various source code fixes and improvements.
* OpenSC now depends on xsltproc utility and docbook-xsl to build docs and man
* Remove iconv dependency. EstEID driver now uses the commonName from the
  certificate for card label.
* Possibility to change the default behavior for card resets via
  opensc.conf.
