Orion 0.9 released: Support for XChaCha20Poly1305 and more

Links: crates.io, GitHub

To those who may have read the last post about the library here, the most notable improvements since then are (full changelog):

  • Support for Poly1305, ChaCha20Poly1305, XChaCha20 and XChaCha20Poly1305.
  • I ended up removing the symmetric encryption interface in the high-level API in version 0.8, because it took me longer to get to this release than I had anticipated. Now it has been re-introduced with authenticated encryption.

If you are unfamiliar with orion, you can read more about it in this post.
