NEWS for the 2.4 release

        This is a bugfix release only. It turned out ripemd160 in the
        2.3 release was broken on all big-endian systems, due to a
        missing include of config.h. nettle-2.4 fixes this.

        The library is intended to be binary compatible with
        nettle-2.2 and nettle-2.3. The shared library names are and, with sonames still and

NEWS for the 2.3 release

        * Support for the ripemd-160 hash function.

        * Fixed a bug which made the testsuite fail in the GCM test on

          md5 and sha1 have been renamed, for consistency.
          Applications should not peek inside these structs, and the
          ABI is unchanged.

        * In the manual, fixed mis-placed const in certain function
