Right. Some other projects are listed in the "Projects" section


BTW, if anyone wants to have some xmlsec based project listed there
then just let me know :)

For all implemented features xmlsec passes all known W3C interop tests.

You might want to run the workload you expect in your application to
get more meaningful results.

Currently active development is done by people interested in extending
the library and I am working as a gatekeeper for the patches they
provide. For example, at the moment there is a big active project
adding support for GOST algorithms implemented by Dmitry Belyavsky.
