Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.0 (2005-10-01)

* You can now configure the backend engine file name and home
directory to be used, as default and per context.

* Information about the recipients of an encrypted text is now
available at decryption time.

* New status GPGME_STATUS_PLAINTEXT. This is analyzed by the decrypt
and verify handlers, the information about the plaintext filename,
if available is made available in the new field file_name of the
respective result structure.

* The code for "automagically detecting the thread library" has been
removed from libgpgme. It is deprecated since version 0.4.3.
Since then, you had to link against libgpgme-pthread for
applications using pthread and libgpgme-pth for applications using
GNU Pth.

The code was removed because it caused compilation problems on
systems where the pthread.h header from GNU Pth is available in
addition to the system header (FreeBSD 6 and later for example).

* "./ --build-w32" does now build gpgme.dll.

* [W32] The environment variable GPGME_DEBUG now uses a semicolon as
delimiter. The standard install directory is used when locating
gpg or gpgsm before finally falling back to the hardwired name.

* There is a new flag for keys and subkeys, is_qualified, which
indicates if a key can be used for qualified signatures according
to local government regulations.

* You can associate a filename with a data object using the new
function gpgme_data_set_file_name(). This filename will be stored
in the output when encrypting or signing the data and will be
returned when decrypting or verifying the output data.

* You can now set notation data at signature creation with the new
function gpgme_sig_notation_add().
