Botan 1.11.15 has been released:

SHA-256 60ca630c170c42795eb2c0c02305a02954a9ff895f8f01b7ef8bd20436417be6

This is a fairly minor bugfix release versus 1.1.14, with the
following changes:

- Some compilation problems for Clang, OS X, and VS 2013 were resolved
- Fixed a bug in ffi.cpp which caused the decryption flag to be ignored
- When comparing two ASN.1 algorithm identifiers, empty and NULL
  parameters are considered the same now
- Fixed memory leaks introduced in 1.11.14
- OpenSSL's RC4 implementation now supports the skip parameter

Finally a note on RC4 support in TLS. It is already disabled by
default as it is manifestly insecure. I plan to remove support for RC4
in TLS entirely in a future release - now is the time to raise any
issues with this.
