INTRODUCTION

The eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution includes everything you need to
get started with SSL in Python. It comes with an easy to use installer
that includes the most recent OpenSSL library versions in pre-compiled
form.

pyOpenSSL is an open-source Python add-on (http://pyopenssl.sf.net/)
that allows writing SSL aware networking applications as well as
certificate management tools.

OpenSSL is an open-source implementation of the SSL protocol
(http://www.openssl.org/).

NEWS

This fourth release of the eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution upgrades
the included OpenSSL libs to version 0.9.8j, which fixes a vulnerability
found in earlier OpenSSL releases of the 0.9.8 branch: CVE-2008-5077
(http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-5077).

We have also enabled zlib compression support in OpenSSL for both the
Linux and Windows builds, so OpenSSL client/servers can now negotiate
on-the-fly zlib compression for SSL connections.

Binaries are available for Linux x86 and x64 as well as Windows x86
and include pyOpenSSL 0.8.0 as well as pre-compiled and tested
OpenSSL 0.9.8j libraries.
