* Fix for a long-standing issue with the crypter passed to the
encrypted reader being an Encrypter, not a Crypter capable of
decrypting any existing keys. Refactored creation of Crypter for
encrypted keysets to a single function for reuse and ease of

* Fix issue with FileReader and StaticKeyReader assuming that they
work for every location. Added unit tests for CreateReader and
CreateWriter. Made CreateReader/Writer error messages a little
more explicit.

* Added the ability to specify paths to additional backends using
an environment variable.

* Rationalised crypter_test.py permutations to improve unit test
performance. Added missing import to keyczar.py and a test for it.

* Add streaming encryption and decryption support and
tests. Separate Base64 encoding from streaming
encryption/decryption. Added Base64 streaming
encoding/decoding. Allow default Base64 encoding/decoding on
encrypt/decrypt to be overridden. Renamed util.Decode/Encode to
util.Base64Decode/Base64Encode and added deprecation
wrappers. Tweaks to unit test setup to remove use of undocumented
makeSuite(). Changed util.Decode() to remove line endings to
handle reflowed input data. Added tests for simulated reflowed
data. Sundry style guide fixes to old and new code. Added
util_test.py with tests for Base64 streaming.

* Fix Python signed session encryption. It was erroneously base64
encoding the ciphertext before signing, making it incompatible
with the other language implementations.

* Made base 64 encoding optional for encryption and decryption.

2011-12-02 14:39:51 -0700 Shawn Willden

* Renamed Encode and Decode to Base64WSEncode and Base64WSDecode.

2011-11-27 16:15:58 +1100 Robert Leftwich

* Added support for pluggable backends, allowing key sets to be
stored outside the local file system. Kept Keyczar.Write backward
compatible, allowing but deprecating use of a string instead of a

* Added signed session encryption and decryption to Python.

2011-12-01 22:17:07 -0700 Shawn Willden

* Added attached signing and verification to Python.

2011-12-01 22:09:54 -0700 Shawn Willden

* Added session encryption to Keyczar Python.

2011-11-27 09:29:25 +1100 Robert Leftwich

* Add initial support for M2Crypto, allowing switching between it
and PyCrypto as required. Changed tests to run in both modes and
added an interop test of varying key sizes.

* Added an assertion to ensure no one tries to create non CBC-mode
AES keys, since we don't actually support them.
