Information about the Deaddrop 3.4.2 release

Existing customers with active service contracts are entitled to download and install this new release.

This release adds a new feature for CRL (Certificate Revocation Lists) handling, it also contains two fixes/enhancements. The GUI enhancement will make clicking on the icons much easier for the end-user. Certain e-mails got a bad layout since they contained UTF8 characters that the user had entered. The encoding is now done in a way to handle UTF8 better.

The primary purpose of this release is to implement handling of CRLs for those deaddrop users that are using X.509 certificates. Deaddrop is now better at handling client certificate users that are blocked or expired and also adding improvements to the user interface.
