    After a long time I have released raaz 0.3.0. There has been significant changes to the API as well as internals (See details in https://github.com/raaz-crypto/raaz/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md). Overall the api is simpler and more robust than previous releases (Feedback for improvement always welcome).
