Dear all,

SoftHSM version 2.6.0 has just been released.  This is mostly
a continued development of SoftHSMv2, and thus should replace
the 2.5 branch to receive any patches.

Even though this is continuation of the development, I should
point out that we have upgraded the optional dependency to
Botan to version 2.  Other fixes and improvements should not
influence existing functionality.  For a more complete list
of improvements see below and the NEWS file inside the package.

No migration, configuration changes or path changes are necessary
and the build configuration should not need changing.

Be safe and don't panic
