Today botan 1.10.0 and 1.8.12 were released.

1.10.0 is a major new feature release. New features now available
include SSL (SSLv3, TLS 1.0, and TLS 1.1 are currently supported), the
GOST 34.10-2001 signature scheme (a Russian ECC signature standard
analogous to ECDSA), the SHA-3 candidates Keccak and Blue Midnight
Wish, bcrypt password hashing, XSalsa20, AES key wrapping, and the
Comb4P hash combinator. There are also many new optimizations, support
for amalgamating the library into a single file for easier application
embedding, and the documentation saw a lot of updates.

1.8.12 is a bug fix rollup. The most notable issues were memory leaks
in the stream filters that would occur if the file open operation
failed, and a bug in EMSA3(Raw) which would cause it to produce
invalid signatures if the same PK_Signer was used more than once.

Source is available from http://botan.randombit.net/download.html,
with binaries for Win32/Win64 following as time permits. 1.10 should
also be available soon in Debian sid
and hopefully in other distributions soon to follow.

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
