Release Notes: This is the first alpha version for SoftHSMv2. All required features for this version have been implemented, and the authors would like to get feedback from the community.
Release Notes: Improved handling of a busy database. Adds -Wall -Werror flags and fixes the warnings. Fixes more warnings on EPEL.
Release Notes: Supports an RSASSA-PSS signature scheme. The default location of the token database is now $localstatedir/lib/softhsm/.
Release Notes: This release increases performance by adding more indexes to the database, describes the usage of SO and the user PIN in the README, and detects whether a C++ compiler is missing.
Release Notes: The library is now installed in $libdir/softhsm/. This release does not give a warning about the schema version if the token has not been initialized yet. The tools now return the correct exit code.
