  OpenSSL version 0.9.6h released

  OpenSSL - The Open Source toolkit for SSL/TLS

  The OpenSSL project team is pleased to announce the release of version
  0.9.6h of our open source toolkit for SSL/TLS.  This new OpenSSL version
  is a bugfix release.  This will be the last release in the 0.9.6 series.

  The most significant changes are:

      o New configuration targets for Tandem OSS and A/UX.
      o New OIDs for Microsoft attributes.
      o Better handling of SSL session caching.
      o Better comparison of distinguished names.
      o Better handling of shared libraries in a mixed GNU/non-GNU environment.
      o Support assembler code with Borland C.
      o Fixes for length problems.
      o Fixes for uninitialised variables.
      o Fixes for memory leaks, some unusual crashes and some race conditions.
      o Fixes for smaller building problems.
      o Updates of manuals, FAQ and other instructive documents.

  We consider OpenSSL 0.9.6h to be the best version of OpenSSL available
  and we strongly recommend that users of older versions upgrade as
  soon as possible.  OpenSSL 0.9.6h is available for download via HTTP
  and FTP from the following master locations (you can find the various
  FTP mirrors under http://www.openssl.org/source/mirror.html):

    o http://www.openssl.org/source/
    o ftp://ftp.openssl.org/source/

  [1] OpenSSL comes in the form of two distributions this time.
  The reasons for this is that we want to deploy the external crypto device
  support but don't want to have it part of the "normal" distribution just
  yet.  The distribution containing the external crypto device support is
  popularly called "engine", and is considered experimental.  It's been
  fairly well tested on Unix and flavors thereof.  If run on a system with
  no external crypto device, it will work just like the "normal" distribution.

  The distribution file names are:

      o openssl-0.9.6h.tar.gz [normal]
        MD5 checksum: 621bef36ad61012bb71945a1cb449073
      o openssl-engine-0.9.6h.tar.gz [engine]
        MD5 checksum: a7e3f5c0a5451ca666e4cbe23a8617a2

  The checksums were calculated using the following commands:

    openssl md5 < openssl-0.9.6h.tar.gz
    openssl md5 < openssl-engine-0.9.6h.tar.gz
