NEWS for the Nettle 3.7.1 release

	This is primarily a bug fix release, fixing a couple of
	problems found in Nettle-3.7.

	The new version is intended to be fully source and binary
	compatible with Nettle-3.6. The shared library names are
	libnettle.so.8.2 and libhogweed.so.6.2, with sonames
	libnettle.so.8 and libhogweed.so.6.

	Bug fixes:

	* Fix bug in chacha counter update logic. The problem affected
	  ppc64 and ppc64el, with the new altivec assembly code
	  enabled. Reported by Andreas Metzler, after breakage in
	  GnuTLS tests on ppc64.

	* Support for big-endian ARM platforms has been restored.
	  Fixes contributed by Michael Weiser.

	* Fix build problem on OpenBSD/powerpc64, reported by Jasper
	  Lievisse Adriaanse.

	* Fix corner case bug in ECDSA verify, it would produce
	  incorrect result in the unlikely case of an all-zero
	  message hash. Reported by Guido Vranken.

	New features:

	* Support for pbkdf2_hmac_sha384 and pbkdf2_hmac_sha512,
	  contributed by Nicolas Mora.

	Miscellaneous:

	* Poorly performing ARM Neon code for doing single-block
	  Salsa20 and Chacha has been deleted. The code to do two or
	  three blocks in parallel, introduced in Nettle-3.7, is
	  unchanged.
