Bug Fixes and Minor Issues

The bug fix and minor issue list for Crypto++ 5.6.4 follows. Most non-trivial issues are tracked for auditing and C&A purposes, but the list may not be complete. A number in parenthesis is the GitHub Issue number, if it was tracked. Sometimes a Git commit is referenced, but many trivial GitHub commits are omitted. Missing Issue numbers or lack of consecutiveness usually indicates feature requests and "won't fix/can't fix" type reports.

The list below has about 70 issues. 10 of the 70 are roughly feature requests that required tracking due to non-trivial code changes. For the remaining 60 issues, the project's test scripts, cryptest.sh and cryptest.nmake, uncovered about 47 (78.3%) of them.
