NEWS for the 1.15 release
Added support for PKCS#1 style RSA signatures using SHA256,
according to RFC 3447. Currently lacks interoperability
Header files are now C++ aware, so C++ programs using Nettle
should now use plain
#include <nettle/foo.h>
rather than
#extern "C" {
#include <nettle/foo.h>
as was the recommendation for the previous version. This
breaks source-level compatibility with C++, even though
there's full binary compatibility.
The file rfc1750.txt (which is considered non-free by debian)
has been removed from the distribution. The file was used as input
for the Yarrow testcase, and has been replaced by the short
story "The Gold-bug" by Edgar Allan Poe. Anyway, RFC 1750 is
obsoleted by RFC 4086.
Fixes for Darwin shared library support, contributed by Grant
Example programs now use a supplied getopt.c.
Configure tests for assemblers with a logarithmic .align
The library is intended to be upwards binary compatible with
earlier versions. The library name is, soname
is still
NEWS for the 1.14 release
