<h1> Plans for nettle-3.3 </h1>
<h2> Bug fixes </h2>
<p class='should'> Fix issues with sizes of objects like the
nettle_hashes array and the ecc_curve structs accidentally leaking
into the ABI. Fix by another level of indirection, with a function
call to return the start address.
<h2> New features </h2>
<p class='postponed'>
Add larger "safe" curves, e.g., M-383, curve41417, curve448 and
E-521. (curve448 in progress, on its own branch).
<p class='postponed'>
Add functions for converting ECC points to and from ANSI x9.62.
<p class='done'>
Use side-channel silent mpz_powm_sec for RSA and DSA.
<p class='postponed'>
Support for the Skein hash function.
<p class='done'>
Side-channel silent memeql_sec.
<p class='postponed'>
Support for more GOST standard algorithms.
<p class='wish'>
Support for CFB mode (patch by Dmitry Eremin-Solenikov posted on
the list).
<h2> Optimizations </h2>

<h2> Miscellaneous </h2>
<p class='done'> Use GMP-5 functions unconditionally. </p>
<p class='postponed'>
Use more functions from GMP-6 and later, when available:
mpn_sec_add_1, mpn_sec_tabselect, mpn_sec_invert, mpn_cnd_swap,
<h2> Documentation </h2>
<p class='done'>
Document memeql_sec.
<p class='should'> Change base16 and base64 interfaces to use char
for encoded data, and fix remaining pointer-signedness warnings.
<h2> Documentation </h2>
<h2> Build system </h2>
<p class='postponed'>
Update AX_CREATE_STDINT_H to the latest version.
<p class='should'>
Delete AX_CREATE_STDINT_H, use stdint.h unconditionally.
<h2> Testing </h2>
<p> Since xenofarm isn't up and running, do some manual testing:
