Hmm, that list is somewhat out of date (several years in some cases).

Indeed.  Adam started that list in 1996, but I don't think he put allot of
time updating it in recent years.  Still, I think it's a good list for
someone who is starting to look for crypto libraries.

It would be nice gift to the community if someone came up with a similar,
updated list.

 I will appreciate experience-reports/evaluations/comparisons with free
 or low cost (and in particular  zero `per seat` cost) crypto libraries,
 especially in C / C++ (or links to web-sites containing them).

Generally the two most suggested free products are Crypto++
(http://www.eskimo.com/~weidai/cryptlib.html) and OpenSSL
(http://www.openssl.org/). I have used both and both are very good toolsets,
each has small advantages, but mostly it's just a programming style
preference.

As a personal preference, I generally preper OpenSSL for most purposes,
because the interface feels better to me, but lately I've been using
Crypto++ more because it supports a wider selection of algorithms (including
the very important for me ECC variants) which is recently of extreme value
to me.

I will say that if either of these was pay-ware, I would gladly pay for it.

especially in C / C++ (or links to web-sites containing them). If I'll 
get substantial useful information (off-list) I'll try to compile it and 
send to the list. Important aspects include reliability, functionality, 
performance, documentation, cost (for development system - no `per seat` 
cost!), and licensing terms (in particular can it be used for commercial 
products, and any restrictions).

Thanks a lot...
