Version 0.16

  • DnD pinentry support is added and it's default to pinentry support

    DnD pinentry support doesn't require any hardware extension, but emulates mass storage class device of USB. User inputs pass phrase by "drag and drop"-ing folders using file manager or something.

  • Bug fix for VERIFY for CHV2

    With no keys, VERIFY command for CHV2 used to fail even if pass phrase is correct. It was intentional, because CHV2 verification would be useless with no keys. But there is a corner case for PRIVATE-DOs, which may requires CHV2 verification. Even though Gnuk doesn't support any PRIVATE-DOs, it is good to be fixed.

  • Changed bcdUSB = 1.1

    Gnuk device conforms to USB 2.0 full speed device, but when it was 2.0, some OS informs users, "you can connect the device to 2.0 compliant hub so that it can have better bandwidth", which is not the case for full speed device.
