ANNOUNCE: hecc-0.3.3

Hi again,
this weekend there was (among other things) another release of hecc,
the Elliptic Curve Cryptography Library for Haskell, to be found at
(or simply by "cabal install hecc")

This release of hecc uses a new library (hF2), which abstracts the
whole F(2^e). Please refer to that library for more information.
With this release, the whole functionality of hecc should be usable
again and the F2-using functions should be a bit faster now (but: not
fast per se, especially if compared against other implementations).
Feel free to play around with it and try to make it faster, I plan to
do the same. ;-)

As always: It is in development and may change, expect only crypto-api
instances to be somewhat stable (someday).

A fresh start into the new week,

A good library is preferable to a tool, except when you just need that
one tool.
