    3333              <p>Having written almost 25,000 lines of code since the start of our project, v6 was due for a code review. So that's what I did, reviewed the code with the help of a static code analysis tool (FxCop for you developers out there :) ) and fixed all sorts of inconsistencies in the code. This should result in slightly higher performance and better behaviour when Eraser is in use.</p> 
    34               <p>However, due to the same code changes resulting from the review, <strong>all tasks will be lost during the upgrade</strong>. You are encouraged to note down tasks which you intend to use in the new install and redefine them once it is installed. Furthermore, because quite a substantial amount of code has been rewritten, certain functions may no longer work (or they may not work properly.) Please report such bugs to <a href="/trac/newticket">Trac</a>!</p>

    3535              <p>Nonetheless, there has been a large number of bugs being fixed (as evidenced from the large jump in build number) and this release of Eraser should be better than before. Please help find any remaining bugs and report thme to Trac - this is most likely to be the final RC before Eraser 6 is released as stable. </p>

    312312                    <p>To use as a pseudo-random generator in cryptographic applications, we would suggest one of the stream ciphers selected by the eSTREAM project (http://www.ecrypt.eu.org/stream/), or AES in counter mode.</p>

    314                 <p>This, and in light of concerns that some members of the community have over the security of ISAAC (most notably <a href="/trac/ticket/143">#143</a>), I've come to a decision that ISAAC will be removed from Eraser. In addition, since an alternative was readily available in .NET (RNGCryptoServiceProvider) and that the default for v6 was set to the RNGCryptoServiceProvider, I felt that the change was not going to be really significant.</p>
