Version 3.2.1 of libotr has been released, and is available on
the OTR website, http://otr.cypherpunks.ca/

This version corrects two heap overflows reported by our users:

- A small write overflow, reported by Justin Ferguson
- A large read overflow, reported by Ben Hawkes

If you use libotr as a shared library, replacing libotr.so.2.2.0 with
the updated libotr.so.2.2.1 (yes, those "2"s are correct) will work

If you linked libotr statically into your program, you should relink
with the new version.

If you are a user of pidgin-otr for Windows, you should download the
updated version 3.2.1-2 right away:


The gpg signature is at:


We are also in the process of finalizing version 4.0.0.  Watch this space.
