     1.6  The average time for a secure comparison was reduced by 60-70%.
     1.7 +Comparisons now work with an actively secure multiplication protocol.

     1.9  * A new prss_lsb function in viff.prss efficiently produces a share of
    1.10    a random field element together with a GF256 share of its least
    1.11    significant bit. This made comparisons 3-4 times faster.

    1.13 +* New default flavors has been added to viff.comparison which uses the
    1.14 +  actively secure multiplication protocol. Actively secure comparisons
