Announcing a new release of p11-kit: 0.2

p11-kit is a key component in using PKCS#11 modules from multiple
libraries and applications running together on a desktop or elsewhere.
Several of the issues that it solves are documented here:

What's new in 0.2

 * Add new handling for the pinfile bits of PKCS#11 URIs. This allows
   applications and libraries to coordinate how they prompt the user
   or get PIN where necessary.

 * Many bug fixes and tweaks

Many thanks to everyone who contributed with review and testing :)
