I just noticed that on the NIST website there is a PDF with a draft of the SHA-3 standard (i.e. FIPS 202) (marked as "new", and seemingly the page was last changed on April 7, 2014).
Previously it was discussed here that NIST would be changing stuff compared to the submission, which was seen as problematic (mainly from a reputation point of view).
- Did these discussed changes make it into the draft standard?
- What else are the changes in the draft standard compared to the submission?
- Are any of these relevant from a security point of view?
