Hi there everybody,

This release is primarily a bug fix release and and also includes
further work on the BCJSSE provider. Issues concerning KMAC, cSHAKE, and
HSS key encoding have been addressed. Further work has been done on the
TLS API including addition of RSA-PSS signature support, Camellia
support and Aria support in the BCJSSE. PKIXRevocationChecker support is
now provided for users of Java 8 and later and multi-release support has
been added for Java 11 XECKeys and Java 15 EdECKeys.
