This email to announce that Botan 1.7.18 has been released.

Changes in this release include:

- Doxygen comments from InSiTo were added

- pkg-config support - suggested by Zack Weinberg

- The configure.pl options --with-unaligned-mem and --with-endian were
   broken, and have been fixed

- Benchmarks for ECDSA and ECKAEG were added

- Yves Jerschow contributed x86 inline asm for Visual C++ for byte swapping

Also perhaps interesting is a new set of benchmarks comparing Botan's performance
when compiled with several different versions of GNU C++ and Intel C++ on
a Core2 Q6600:

As always, tarballs are available at http://botan.randombit.net/
