Botan 1.4.8 has been released today. As always, it can be downloaded from
http://botan.randombit.net/download.php. This is primarily a bug fix
release. Notable changes include:

- A Visual Studio compile problem, reported by Rachel Blackman, was fixed
- A bug in the memory allocators was found by Nathaniel Smith and
  diagnosed/fixed by Matt Johnston. His fix is included in 1.4.8.
- The OMAC algorithm was renamed CMAC, to match the official NIST name. An
  alias was added to the name to object mappings to map OMAC to CMAC. However,
  if you were including omac.h directly you will have to update your code.

All changes are listed in the changelog notes included with the distribution
and viewable on the site. RPMs for Fedora Core 2 have been built and are
available now; I will be building FC3 RPMs later tonight.
