Hi,

we do not plan to make any changes to the algorithm of Catena.
Nevertheless, we plan to update the reference implementation and the
specification paper regarding to the descriptions of Blake2b-1,
mention Catena-Axungia (search tool to find optimal parameters),
mention Catena-Variants (implementation of Catena that allows
extension and mofidication), and correcting some indices to ensure
consistency throughout the whole document.

Best regards,
Jakob
