Release of Perl distribution of Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS12 1.9

Crypt::OpenSSL::PKCS12 1.9 have just been release to CPAN and all open PRs have now been processed.

Additionally I have:

  • Ported the change log from text to Markdown
  • Added some of the suggested sections to the documentation, some of these will have to be updated with more information
  • I have added some more references and documentation and there is more to come in this space
  • I have bumped the Perl requirement from 5.6 to 5.8 since the test suite uses UTF-8, perlver is indeed a nifty tool, you can use it to find out what your perl minimum version requirement is
  • Finally I have documented that the distribution is not compatible with OpenSSL 3.X.X only 1.X.X

This concludes this feature release. The next major thing is to make the distrubution compatible with OpenSSL 3.X.X - so there are plenty of things to do.

Thanks to James Rouzier (@jrouzierinverse) for his create_as_string feature - your contribution is most welcome
