Subject: New software: HTTP, cryptography
There is a new release of my HTTP/1.1 client, correcting some errors and
providing a simplified API:

I've bundled Blowfish and DES implementations to a new package:

The implementations are written purely in Ocaml, no C library is needed. They
are 8 to 10 times slower than the hand-optimized C/assembler functions found in
ssleay; that's not too bad. They mainly do 32-bit integer arithmetic, and this
is not one of the areas where Ocaml is brilliant...

Updates of the packages are announced, as usual, in the O'caml link db:

Have fun with that,
