Johnnycanencrypt 0.13.0 released

I just now released v0.13.0 of my johnnycanencrypt project. It is a Python module written in Rust, which provides OpenPGP functionality including allows usage of Yubikey 4/5 as smartcards. From 0.12.0 it is now licensed as LGPL-3.0-or-later.

Major updates in this release (and in the previous one are):

  • Adds enable_otp_usb in rjce.
  • Adds disable_otp_usb in rjce.
  • Changed license to LGPL-3.0-or-later
  • We can now disable OTP for both YubiKey4/5 #131.

For many folks disabling the OTP application in the Yubikey is must, otherwise we all saw random bytes dropping on the shell/document/chat thanks to a touch to the key. I tested the code in both Yubikey 4 and 5. I hope this will work well in the field.
