ZSmime 1.1 is now available.

ZSmime enables Zope to generate S/MIME-signed/encrypted messages.

ZSmime is useful where Zope accepts confidential information over the web,
e.g., credit card numbers, Swiss bank account instructions, etc.  Such
information can be protected by ZSmime and relayed off-site immediately.
This reduces the value of the information carried on-site and in turn
reduces the impact of a successful attack against the site.

ZSmime adds a new DTML tag "dtml-smime" to Zope.

This release improves on error checking. It has been tested with Zope 2.3.0
and Netscape Messenger.

The ZSmime HOWTO has also been updated.
