It includes support for mSQL, MySQL and   Postgres.         MIME - Multimedia Internet Mail Extension Module    - This module makes it easy to create and decode e-mails, including + This module makes it easy to create and decode e-mail, including   attachments.         Gz - Data Compression Module      With this module you can compress data. Its name is slightly   misleading, as it uses ZLIB. ZLIB uses the same compression algorithm   as gzip, but the format for the compressed data is not compatible with   gzip.         Crypto - Cryptographic Toolkit      The crypto toolkit is a set of objects implementing various   cryptographic algorithms, as well as objects used to glue the other   objects together. The toolkit includes block ciphers IDEA, DES - (includng tripple DES) and CAST, the RC4 stream cipher, the hash - functions MD5 and SHA, and the public key cryptography algoritm + (including tripple DES) and CAST, the RC4 stream cipher, the hash + functions MD5 and SHA, and the public key cryptography algorithm   RSA. It also includes a some randomness sources.      The toolkit can be used for most kinds of cryptographic applications,   including encrypted network connections, as well as encryption of   files or other data.      Unfortunately, the cryptograpy toolkit in this release has been   stripped of all real cryptography. It includes only the hash functions   and the glue objects. The full cryptographic toolkit will be released   as soon as the export issues have been resolved.
