  This file gives a brief overview of the major changes between each OpenSSL
  release. For more details please read the CHANGES file.

  Major changes between OpenSSL 1.1.1c and OpenSSL 1.1.1d [10 Sep 2019]

      o Fixed a fork protection issue (CVE-2019-1549)
      o Fixed a padding oracle in PKCS7_dataDecode and CMS_decrypt_set1_pkey
        (CVE-2019-1563)
      o For built-in EC curves, ensure an EC_GROUP built from the curve name is
        used even when parsing explicit parameters
      o Compute ECC cofactors if not provided during EC_GROUP construction
        (CVE-2019-1547)
      o Early start up entropy quality from the DEVRANDOM seed source has been
        improved for older Linux systems
      o Correct the extended master secret constant on EBCDIC systems
      o Use Windows installation paths in the mingw builds (CVE-2019-1552)
      o Changed DH_check to accept parameters with order q and 2q subgroups
      o Significantly reduce secure memory usage by the randomness pools
      o Revert the DEVRANDOM_WAIT feature for Linux systems

  Major changes between OpenSSL 1.1.1b and OpenSSL 1.1.1c [28 May 2019]

      o Prevent over long nonces in ChaCha20-Poly1305 (CVE-2019-1543)

  Major changes between OpenSSL 1.1.1a and OpenSSL 1.1.1b [26 Feb 2019]

      o Change the info callback signals for the start and end of a post-handshake
        message exchange in TLSv1.3.
      o Fix a bug in DTLS over SCTP. This breaks interoperability with older versions
        of OpenSSL like OpenSSL 1.1.0 and OpenSSL 1.0.2.

  Major changes between OpenSSL 1.1.1 and OpenSSL 1.1.1a [20 Nov 2018]

      o Timing vulnerability in DSA signature generation (CVE-2018-0734)
      o Timing vulnerability in ECDSA signature generation (CVE-2018-0735)

  Major changes between OpenSSL 1.1.0i and OpenSSL 1.1.1 [11 Sep 2018]

      o Support for TLSv1.3 added (see https://wiki.openssl.org/index.php/TLS1.3
        for further important information). The TLSv1.3 implementation includes:
          o Fully compliant implementation of RFC8446 (TLSv1.3) on by default
          o Early data (0-RTT)
          o Post-handshake authentication and key update
          o Middlebox Compatibility Mode
          o TLSv1.3 PSKs
          o Support for all five RFC8446 ciphersuites
          o RSA-PSS signature algorithms (backported to TLSv1.2)
          o Configurable session ticket support
          o Stateless server support
          o Rewrite of the packet construction code for "safer" packet handling
          o Rewrite of the extension handling code
      o Complete rewrite of the OpenSSL random number generator to introduce the
        following capabilities
          o The default RAND method now utilizes an AES-CTR DRBG according to
            NIST standard SP 800-90Ar1.
          o Support for multiple DRBG instances with seed chaining.
          o There is a public and private DRBG instance.
          o The DRBG instances are fork-safe.
          o Keep all global DRBG instances on the secure heap if it is enabled.
          o The public and private DRBG instance are per thread for lock free
            operation
      o Support for various new cryptographic algorithms including:
          o SHA3
          o SHA512/224 and SHA512/256
          o EdDSA (both Ed25519 and Ed448) including X509 and TLS support
          o X448 (adding to the existing X25519 support in 1.1.0)
          o Multi-prime RSA
          o SM2
          o SM3
          o SM4
          o SipHash
          o ARIA (including TLS support)
      o Significant Side-Channel attack security improvements
      o Add a new ClientHello callback to provide the ability to adjust the SSL
        object at an early stage.
      o Add 'Maximum Fragment Length' TLS extension negotiation and support
      o A new STORE module, which implements a uniform and URI based reader of
        stores that can contain keys, certificates, CRLs and numerous other
        objects.
      o Move the display of configuration data to configdata.pm.
      o Allow GNU style "make variables" to be used with Configure.
      o Claim the namespaces OSSL and OPENSSL, represented as symbol prefixes
      o Rewrite of devcrypto engine

  Major changes between OpenSSL 1.1.0h and OpenSSL 1.1.0i [under development]

      o Client DoS due to large DH parameter (CVE-2018-0732)
      o Cache timing vulnerability in RSA Key Generation (CVE-2018-0737)

  Major changes between OpenSSL 1.1.0g and OpenSSL 1.1.0h [under development]
