It is? The 1.3.8 release added the RC4 class and I can see it in the API docs.

Perhaps something is being cached? Hold the shift key down while you hit reload.

The stock package contains everything. The secret build directions are
hidden at the very end of the README.txt.

Basically you just do:

  $ ant javadoc

The JCIFS API documentation really needs to be pruned. We used to
limit what classes were exposed in the API docs but at some point that
broke. I've added a task to the TODO list to fix that. Almost 90% of
the classes are things no one should ever look at.
