Some notes about performance changes and addition of GCM.

835:      o Nettle refactored    +  CBC cipher mode is now twice as fast. +  + o Crypto.GCM +  +  GCM (Galois Counter Mode) cipher mode added. +    o AES support added to the SSL module       This adds support for the following cipher suites:
890:   o Crypto.RSA and Crypto.DSA       The key generation for RSA and DSA are now done by Nettle. This -  results in faster key generation for RSA and stronger keys for DSA. +  results in 90% faster key generation for RSA. Key generation for DSA +  is 10 times slower, but produces better quality keys.      o Crypto.Hash
