The last release of Crypto++ 5.2.1 is a bit outdated now and doesn't compile
out of the box with the latest compilers. I've decided to release version
5.4 before 5.3.x, since FIPS testing of 5.3.x might take a few more months.
Here is a snapshot of the current CVS. I've tested it with VC6, VC2005, GCC
3.4.4 (cygwin), GCC 4.1.2 (Linux). Please give it a try. I'll make the 5.4
release in a couple of weeks if no major problems are found.
As a side note, the quality of the GCC compiler seems to have improved
significantly since I last looked. GCC 4.1.2 is able to compile Crypto++
at -O3 with no errors. The code produced is only slightly slower than VC
2005 (average of 177 vs 188 from the Crypto++ benchmarks). However the code
size it produces is still significantly larger than VC 2005 (4.6 MB vs 2 MB
