Thank you for all your work. I understand your concern, and hope it nevers comes to pass. We all can look forward to another encryption system, thanks to the big mouths.

That's unlikely. Adobe can't change the ePub encryption system without breaking all the devices that are out there.

Thanks to you and your confreres for your help and hard work.

I especially appreciate your recent post clarifying/detailing proper tools and procedures. With your assistance, I am now able to back up my ebook purchases and can read them on two different brands of ereader. This has led me to purchase *more* books, secure in the knowledge that I will have continued access to them, unaffected by the vagaries of the ebook marketplace.

Much appreciation for your efforts, and best wishes for the future.

Thanks very much for all your help. Your work and that of your predecessor and compatriots have made ereading a much more viable option by helping us protect our investments in the ebooks we have "licensed." Its unfortunate that you have to "retire," but it is understandable.

What was the reason for updating the Adobe DRM circumvention scripts?

I don't know. Is there a "change history" in the script? That might tell you.

If I remember the posted change notes properly, there was a a fix to support OpenSSL as a possible replacement for PyCrypto to help support Mac OS X and Linux (and it can be used on Windows too), some interface changes to allow its use via import - probably not that important unless you want to use it as part of some more complex system, and a bug fix to deal with international book names in the encryption.xml file which is important and needed. I believe the original scripts are part of the tools and you could of course diff the versions.

Just wanted to add my thanks.

Disappointing that you had to be forced into and early retirement.

Sorry that you're being forced into an "early retirement", but understandable.

I hope said "retirement" includes ingesting many fancy alcoholic beverages that come with little umbrellas while sitting under a parasol on a sunny / hot beach somewhere!!

Thank you kind sir for all your efforts.
