LibreSSL: More Than 30 Days Later

News.Debuntu.Org - Mon, 09/29/2014 - 13:14

Ted Unangst has posted an update
on LibreSSL development
. "Joel and I have been working on a
replacement API for OpenSSL, appropriately entitled ressl. Reimagined SSL
is how I think of it. Our goals are consistency and simplicity. In
particular, we answer the question 'What would the user like to do?' and
not 'What does the TLS protocol allow the user to do?'. You can make a
secure connection to a server. You can host a secure server. You can read
and write some data over that connection."

Kernel prepatch 3.17-rc7

News.Debuntu.Org - Mon, 09/29/2014 - 00:04

In the end, Linus did not do the final 3.17 release this weekend; instead,
3.17-rc7 is available for testing. "It's not that
anything particularly scary happened, but quite frankly, things just
didn't calm down as I hoped for.

And while my travel schedule would have made it really nice had I been
able to just do a shorter-than-usual release, 'convenience' isn't
really part of the release criteria. Oh well."
