“The upcoming draft of SP 800-186, which will specify approved elliptic curves, will include the curves currently specified in FIPS 186-4 and two additional curves: Curve25519 and Curve448.”

      This is quite nice indeed, I’m a huge fan of the 25519 Curve, it makes my life so much better compared to the NIST curves or RSA.

      (edit) This might also lead towards improved software in the industry where NIST approval weighs more than actual security.
