Celebrate 10 years of BouncyCastle

David Hook of BouncyCastle wrote this on the dev-crypto mailinglist.

Hi all,

While we're not in a habit of making a huge fuss about things, one thing
is about to come up which we thought we'd mention.

Monday 24th of May, marks 10 years since the first release of the Bouncy
Castle Cryptography APIs.

To give you an idea of what this means, the first release was on the
order of 24,000 lines of java. Ten years on we are now looking at
200,000 lines of Java and 160,000 lines of C# with a substantial
increase in functionality. The passage of time has certainly been felt.

Anyway, a lot of people outside of the core developers have contributed
over the years, so once again, thanks! And for us, them, and everyone
else, if you're inclined to celebrate 10 years of open source crypto
from this project, Monday is a good time to do it!



An incredibly consistent track record of one of the best open source projects out there!
