NEWS for the 2.5 release
This release includes important portability fixes for Windows
and MacOS. There are also a few new features.
* Warning: The undocumented, internal, function
pkcs1_signature_prefix is changed. Since this is an internal
function, this is not considered a change of ABI or API.
Programs explicitly using this function will break.
New features:
* Support for the salsa20 block cipher, including x86_64
assembler. Originally contributed by Simon Josefsson, based
on the reference implementation, then further optimized.
* Tentative interface for timing-resistant RSA functions,
contributed by Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos.
* A more general interface for PKCS#1 signatures, taking the
input in the form of a "DigestInfo". Suggested by Nikos
Mavrogiannopoulos.
Miscellaneous:
* Various portability fixes for MacOS and M$ Windows. A lot of
this work done by Martin Storsjö.
* In particular, Nettle now hopefully works on 64-bit Windows
builds, "W64", including the x86_64 assemby code.
