Hello. I need the SHA512 hash function, and Mark Smith's library only contains up to 256: ... evstuff%2F

I notice that LV v9 includes a "messageAuthenticationCode", but I'm confused as to the "key" requirement.

I'm sending a REST command to a server, and part of the command containing a users private key must be hashed.

V9's messageDigest function includes built in support for SHA256. I don't know if it also includes SHA512, but if not submit a request and maybe they can add it before so goes final.
