**Update HASHLIB moves into RC-1**

With all the thanks in the world to jacobly from Cemetech for the modular exponentiation function we needed for RSA, HASHLIB is now formally complete and in release candidate phase (apart from the possibility of adding ECDSA in the distant future) and has been released on github for testing.

As many of you may know and others will learn by reading this, HASHLIB contains the following crytographic implementations:

<> A secure PRNG that produces ~96 bits of entropy per 32-bit integer generated.

<> The SHA-256 cryptographic hash.

<> An implementation of Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), for 128, 192, and 256 bit keys.

<> An implementation of RSA encryption up to 2048 bits in key length.

<> An implementation of the appropriate padding schemes for the above encryptions.

<> An implementation of SSL signature verification using the RSA with SHA-256 signing algorithm.

Feel free to download and test against commonly used cryptography libraries and report back on compatibility or lack thereof.
