Specifically, changes to make to Encryptor so that it is no longer
vulnerable to "padding oracle attacks" (issue #120) and fixes to
seal() so that it now properly works if the message being sealed
contains a ":" (issue #28).

And, in addition,

6) Examples should now work (if you follow directions in README.txt)
   whether ESAPI has been pulled from the SVN repository or downloaded
   from the zip file. (Issue #114.)
