Developers working with OpenSSL can finally start to work with TLS 1.3, thanks to the alpha version of OpenSSL 1.1.1 that landed yesterday. Getting TLS 1.3 into users hands and working with infrastructure has been a long, slow process: the first version of its Internet-Draft dates back to April 2014, it reached version 23 in …
This is great, I invite everyone to test this version, we have to find and squash bugs still present and need everybody's help. This library is used in a gazillion pieces of software on all currently developed platforms, we need to help the OpenSSL guyz here ... just download, compile, run a few tests and report any issues you find - we need everybody to join in because this software is used by every single netizen.

I have a vm or three what will get this, but I'll be kicking this off the Dev host now.
