Hi everybody,

Secure Spread 1.0.0 was released on March 30.

 Changes between 0.0.3 and 1.0.0 include:

 1) Major feature: the key agreement while still based on Cliques GDH,
    suffered major modifications. The key agreement protocol
    should be now robust, resilient to any sequence of group events.

 2) The SSP_version changed to return now major, minor and patch

 3) The interface has a new function SSP_flush which makes the Flush OK/

      Flush Request mechanism transparent to the user. Basically this
      mechanism give a user the possibility to delay the change of the
      group view. SSP_flush should be called only in answer to a receive

      of a flush request message (use macro Is_flush_req_msg), otherwise

      an error will be returned.

 4) SSP_get_key was added. For a given group, the function returns the
      shared group key.

 5) The code was ported to compile on BSD and FreeBsd

 6) Ability to log to a file was added.

  If you have any problem with it, please post it on this list or email
