 -----------------------------
 
 The average time for a secure comparison was reduced by 60-70%.
+Comparisons now work with an actively secure multiplication protocol.
 
 * A new prss_lsb function in viff.prss efficiently produces a share of
   a random field element together with a GF256 share of its least
   significant bit. This made comparisons 3-4 times faster.
 
+* New default flavors has been added to viff.comparison which uses the
+  actively secure multiplication protocol. Actively secure comparisons
+  take about twice as long as passive secure comparisons.
