> XSalsa20-Poly1305

I'd suggest ChaCha20-Poly1305 in the AEAD construction defined in RFC 7539[1] (which is what most new libraries implement). ChaCha20 is more performant and these days is more widely used -- though the underlying construction is very similar and both were designed by Bernstein et al.
