      Description

      This release introduces several changes to the JCE Jurisdiction Policy files.

      Previously, to allow unlimited cryptography in the JDK, separate JCE Jurisdiction Policy files had be be downloaded and installed. The download and install steps are no longer necessary.

      1. Both the strong but "limited" (traditional default) and the "unlimited" policy files are included in this release.

      2. A new Security property (`crypto.policy`) was introduced to control which policy files are active. The new default is "unlimited".

      3. The files are now user-editable to allow for customized Policy configuration.

      Please see the Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA) Reference Guide for more information.
