Package contains libraries, required by other applications as dependencies. Do not install separately.

low level cryptographic library (development files)
Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in more or
less any context: In crypto toolkits for object-oriented languages (C++,
Python, Pike, ...), in applications like LSH or GNUPG, or even in kernel
It tries to solve a problem of providing a common set of cryptographic
algorithms for higher-level applications by implementing a
context-independent set of cryptographic algorithms. In that light, Nettle
doesn't do any memory allocation or I/O, it simply provides the
cryptographic algorithms for the application to use in any environment and
in any way it needs.
This package contains the development files (C headers and static libraries)

nettle (2.0-2) unstable; urgency=low

* rsa2sexp_algorithm_name.dpatch (new): Use a default algorithm name
that LSH understands in the sexp representation of an RSA key, so that
pkcs1-conv can be used to convert existing OpenSSH private keys.
* debian/control: Add ${misc:Depends} to all packages lacking it.
* debian/control: nettle-dev: Depend on dpkg (>= 1.15.4) | install-info
as recommended for the transition to triggerized install-info.
* Upgraded to Standards-Version 3.8.3 with the previous change.
