GPGME 1.4.3 released

I am pleased to announce version 1.4.3 of GPGME.

GnuPG Made Easy (GPGME) is a C language library that allows to add
support for cryptography to a program. It is designed to make access
to public key crypto engines as included in GnuPG easier for
applications. GPGME provides a high-level crypto API for encryption,
decryption, signing, signature verification, and key management.

* Noteworthy changes in version 1.4.3 (2013-08-12)

- The default engine names are now taken from the output of gpgconf.
If gpgconf is not found the use of gpg 1 is assumed.

- Under Windows the default engines names are first searched in the
installation directory of the gpgme DLL.

- New function gpgme_data_identify to detect the type of a message.

- Interface changes relative to the 1.4.2 release:
gpgme_signers_count NEW.
gpgme_data_type_t NEW.
gpgme_data_identify NEW.
