gnoMint 0.1.0 has been released

I'm pleased to announce gnoMint 0.1.0: the first public release of the new Certification Authority managing tool for GTK/Gnome.

gnoMint is a tool for an easy creation and management of Certification Authorities. It allows a fancy visualization of all the pieces that conform a CA: x509 certificates, CSRs, CRLs...

Currently, this first v0.1.0 allows the creation of CAs, CSRs and Certificates. It can export both public and private parts of them into PEM formatted files.

This is the first public release. It has known bugs, and it is not feature-completed yet.

However, gnoMint is now perfectly usable for managing a CA that emits
certificates able to:
* Authenticate people or machines in VPNs (IPSec or other protocols);
* Secure HTTP communications with SSL/TLS secured web servers;
* Authenticate and cipher HTTP communications through web-client

certificates;
* Sign and/or crypt e-mails

For compiling it, its dependencies are:
* GTK+
* Gnome
* SQLite 2 or better
* libGnuTLS 1.0.14

You can get the tarball from sourceforge mirrors:
