New features:
* Support for poly1305-aes MAC.
* Support for Poly1305-AES MAC.
* Experimental support for the Chacha stream cipher and the
chacha-poly1305 AEAD mode. Specifications are still in
flux, and future releases may do incompatible changes to
track standardization. Currently uses 256-bit key and 64-bit
nonce.

* Support for EAX mode.
* Support for CCM mode. Contributed by Owen Kirby.
* Support for additional variants of SHA512 with output size
of 224 and 256 bits. Contributed by Joachim Strömbergson.

* New interface, struct nettle_aead, for mechanisms providing
authenticated encryption with associated data (AEAD).

Miscellaneous:
* SHA3 is now documented as EXPERIMENTAL. Nettle currently
implements SHA3 as specified at the time Keccak won the SHA3
competition. However, the final standard specified by NIST
is likely to be incompatible, in which case future releases
may do incompatible changes to track standardization.
* The portability fix for the rotation macros, mentioned in
NEWS for 2.7.1, actually didn't make it into that release.
It is included now.
