ecryptfs-utils-100 released

Most of the original IBM LTC Security Team that designed and implemented eCryptfs, 2005-2008, along with a couple of Gazzangers who have also contributed to eCryptfs.  Gazzang hosted a small reception on Thursday, August 2, 2012.
I'm pleased to announce the 100th release of the ecryptfs-utils userspace package!

Somewhat unusually, eCryptfs userspace packages simply increment a single integral revision number, rather than a major or minor revision.  That project maintenance decision predates my involvement as project maintainer.  But it seems to work, at least for me :-)  I started maintaining the eCryptfs project and package at release 50, so this marks roughly my 50th release too.

Grepping through the changelog, I counted 157 bugs fixed over the last 6 years.  I really like to recognize the contributors who have helped bring a stable and reliable eCryptfs to you:

Apologies if I missed you...let me know and I'll add you in there ;-)

Changelog follows.   Here's to another 100!
