THEMIS 0.10.0 RELEASE
We couldn’t hold out till St. Valentine’s Day, so we’re releasing the love and all the hard work put into the new version of Themis today. Themis 0.10.0 is out and there is no turning back as this release introduces breaking changes.
If you are using Themis on x64 systems, consider upgrading every Themis library/wrapper you were using to 0.10.0. Incompatibility issues may arise between previous Themis versions and 0.10.0 on x64 machines (#279).
Please see the Migration Guide for more details on seamless migration to the new version of Themis. It is a really important document if you want the things to keep going smoothly in your use of Themis.
