ANNOUNCEMENT: gnome-keyring 2.23.5

gnome-keyring is the part of the GNOME Desktop that saves your passwords
and encryption keys securely.

This is an development release.

Important Notes:

    * gnome-keyring now includes a new library:
      - gp11 (GLib bindings for PKCS#11)

    * Some helpful notes for distributors:

Changes between 2.22.3 and 2.23.5:

    * Load all SSH keys in ~/.ssh with file names that match
      id_?sa*. Not just id_rsa and id_dsa as was previously
      the case.
    * Load public SSH keys (ie: *.pub) when needed.
    * Include new GP11 library, which is GLib bindings for PKCS#11
    * Add ability to import keys/certificates to PKCS#11.
    * Better storage and creation of PKCS#11 objects.
    * Start using GTest for new unit testing.
    * Better indexing of keys and certificates.
    * Better buffer handling, and threading fixes. [Jon Burgress]
    * Fix warnings in logs caused by programs checking whether
      gnome-keyring is available.
    * Add --disable-acl-prompts option to disable all ACL
      prompting [Colin Walters]
    * Build fixes.
