scrypt 1.3.1 released

Hi scrypt users,

I've just released scrypt 1.3.1.  You can download the scrypt code at
and the tarball has SHA256 hash
which can also be found in the GPG-signed hash file at
.  I've also tagged the source tree from which I rolled this release at
https://github.com/Tarsnap/scrypt/tree/1.3.1 .

Notable changes since 1.3.0:

* New options for providing a passphrase:
  * --passphrase dev:tty-stdin
  * --passphrase dev:stdin-once
  * --passphrase dev:tty-once
  * --passphrase env:VARNAME
  * --passphrase file:FILENAME

* New options for specifying explicit scrypt key derivation parameters to
be used for file encryption: --logN, -r, -p.

There is also some minor refactoring, style fixes, and portability fixes
for OpenBSD and Solaris.
