PyCrypto 2.1.0alpha2 has been released.  I'm going to push through a stable 
release as soon as I can, since at this point I think all the major issues 
have been resolved[*], and it's getting a bit ridiculous that it's taking 
me longer to release a stable PyCrypto than it takes to release a stable 

You can get this alpha release via HTTP at:


You can also get it from the git repository:

   $ git clone git://git.pycrypto.org:9419/crypto/pycrypto-2.x.git
   $ cd pycrypto-2.x
   $ git checkout v2.1.0alpha2

The ChangeLog is available online at:


Please test it and post your experiences to the PyCrypto mailing list:

and/or file bug reports on Launchpad:


There has been a huge number of changes since the last stable release[**], 
and not a lot of feedback so far, so I would really appreciate any feedback 
even if it's just a simple oneliner like, "built on <OS> <ARCHITECTURE>; 
used with <PROGRAM>; works fine."

The files for this release have the following SHA256 sums:
