Subject: libzip-1.5.0 released
Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2018 09:53:21 +0100


We've released libzip-1.5.0 yesterday.

The changes are:

* Use standard cryptographic library instead of custom AES implementation.
  This also simplifies the license.
* Use `clang-format` to format the source code.
* More Windows improvements.

On the first point: We would like to also support the Windows native
crypto libraries. Volunteers for writing the compatibility layer would
be welcome. It should be doable in about an hour. zip_random() has
also been moved to the crypto backends, since most libraries implement
it. The Windows versions were removed from the build, but the files
are still there for reference.
