[New-bugs-announce] [issue8569] Upgrade OpenSSL in Windows builds

New submission from Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr>:

I don't know how official installers are built, but the standard build procedure with the Visual Studio files uses a custom checkout of OpenSSL 0.9.8l. OpenSSL is now at version 1.0.x, which adds security fixes and improvements.

I'd suggest upgrade the "custom checkout" to use the latest OpenSSL version, at least for dev branches (it may be too disruptive for the bugfix branches, since OpenSSL seems to have a history of changing behaviour a bit even between what look like minor versions). I don't have an idea how to do this myself, Linux being my development platform.
