* Update of certificates
The expired self-signed gmplib.org certificate for https connections has
now been replaced with a self-signed but unexpired certificate.
This causes some hassle with web browsers (at least it should!) when
using https. To fix this in firefox, one needs to choose Edit ->
Preferences then choose Advanced and then Certificates; this will pop up
a new windows where you need to choose View Certificates -> Servers and
there locate all entries for gmplib.org. Delete them! Then restart
firefox. Chrome just asks you to make a "security exception".
Alternatively, you could use http and do nothing. Our democratrix
governments will then feel gratitude towards you!
* Access to ftp area with http and https
The entire ftp area can now be accessed over http and https, using URLs
like https://ftp.gmplib.org/. The main reason for this change is to
allow for encrypted file transfer.
* Compression for http and https
Our web server will now gzip html and text files if your web browser
supports that. This will speed up browsing, at least if you have a slow
* Upgrade of mailman
We've upgraded the list management software mailman to the latest
edition. There should be few visible differences.
