Re: 1.1.1 to 3.0?

There's an extension for OpenSSL that is certified by the US government, which some government contracts require. That was separate, and had version 2.0. Now it's integrated into OpenSSL, and they needed to avoid two "version 2.0" releases of that module. So they called the whole thing version 3.0.
