Updated information for nettle-2.2.

Rev: nettle/NEWS:1.10
parent 226c885c
NEWS for the 2.2 release
Licensing change:
* Relicensed as LGPL v2.1 or later.
* Replaced blowfish and serpent implementation. New code is
based on the LGPLed code in libgcrypt.
New features:
* Support for Galois/Counter Mode (GCM).
* New interface for enumerating (most) available algorithms,
contributed by Daniel Kahn Gillmor.
* New tool nettle-hash. Can generate hash digests using any
supported hash function, with output compatible to programs
like md5sum. Checking (like md5sum -c) not yet implemented.
Bug fixes:
* The old serpent code had a byte order bug (introduced by
yours truly about ten years ago). New serpent implementation
does not interoperate with earlier versions of nettle.
* Fixed ABI-dependent libdir default for linux-based systems
which do not follow the conventions Linux File Hierarchy
Standard, e.g., Debian GNU/linux.
* x86_64 implemention of serpent_encrypt (serpent_decrypt not
yet done).
* x86_64 implemention of camellia.
* Faster memxor.
* In command line tools, don't use -? for requesting help,
since it's a bit dangerous without shell quoting. Use long
option --help instead.
* Interface cleanup.
The shared library names are and, with sonames and
