     1.4  Next version, not yet released
     1.5  ------------------------------
     1.6  
     1.7 -The central class named Runtime was renamed to PassiveRuntime. Inputs
     1.8 -can now be provided using the a common method named input.
     1.9 +The central class named Runtime was renamed to PassiveRuntime. All
    1.10 +runtime classes now uses the common method names input and output for
    1.11 +providing data to and retrieving data from the computation.
    1.12  
    1.13 -* Renamed viff.runtime.Runtime to viff.passive.PassiveRuntime. This is
    1.14 -  a backwards incompatible change. Please update your import
    1.15 -  statements accordingly.
    1.16 +* Moved the crypto-related code from the viff.runtime.Runtime class to
    1.17 +  a new class called viff.passive.PassiveRuntime. This is a backwards
    1.18 +  incompatible change. Please update your import statements to import
    1.19 +  PassiveRuntime instead of Runtime.
    1.20  
    1.21  * Introduced input method in PassiveRuntime and PaillierRuntime. This
    1.22    method should be used instead of shamir_share and share unless there
    1.23    is a particular reason to select a secret sharing strategy.
    1.24  
    1.25 +* Introduced output method in Runtime classes. This method should be
    1.26 +  used instead of the open method, which will go away in a future
    1.27 +  release.
    1.28 +
    1.29  * Renamed random seed environment variable from SEED to VIFF_SEED.
    1.30  
    1.31  * Made viff.prss.PRF produce consistent output on both 32-bit and
