Good morning,

I've released Botan 1.10.7 and 1.11.6 today.

The only major change in 1.10.7 is a fix for a OAEP/EME1 decoding crash when
using keys too small to support OAEP with the desired hash (for instance a
512-bit RSA key with OAEP/SHA-256).

1.11.6 has a number of changes related to certificiate verification and adds
support for online OCSP checks and static directories of trusted certs ala
/usr/share/ca-certificates. Support for these features requires the Boost
filesystem and asio libraries, which are now assumed by default in the build
(use --without-boost to disable). Also added were the Threefish-512 tweakable
block cipher (including a version using AVX2), the SIV AEAD mode, RFC-standard
HKDF, and support for using the Intel clmul instruction for GCM acceleration.

Download links are as always at http://botan.randombit.net/download.html

Cheers,
  Jack
