-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
A new snapshot, `0.0.20180413`, has been tagged in the git repository.
Please note that this snapshot is, like the rest of the project at this point
in time, experimental, and does not consitute a real release that would be
considered secure and bug-free. WireGuard is generally thought to be fairly
stable, and most likely will not crash your computer (though it may).
However, as this is a pre-release snapshot, it comes with no guarantees, and
its security is not yet to be depended on; it is not applicable for CVEs.
With all that said, if you'd like to test this snapshot out, there are a
few relevent changes.
== Changes ==
* wg-quick.8: fix typo
* wg-quick: hide errors on save
This fixes a small regression in the resolvconf save handling on Debian.
* compat: stable kernels are now receiving b87b619
* compat: silence warning on frankenkernels
* compat: support OpenSUSE 15
Usual set of fixes for weird kernels.
* curve25519: use precomp implementation instead of sandy2x
* curve25519: use cmov instead of xor for cswap
* curve25519: memzero in batches
* curve25519: precomp const correctness
Rather than using sandy2x, which requires use of the vector registers and simd
instructions (and therefore thermal throttling and register save/restores), we
instead use BMI2 and ADX instructions to achieve better performance, using:
* curve25519: add self tests from wycheproof
* chacha20poly1305: add self tests from wycheproof
Wycheproof now provides sneaky test vectors, so we've imported them into our
self-tests to mitigate regressions. More info can be found at:
