A new snapshot of M2Crypto is now available. The major change:

 ZServerSSL Rides Again

Whew! It's been a year! ZServerSSL was last released on 1 Feb 2000 for
Zope 2.1.3.

It has now been dusted off and re-released for Zope 2.3.0.

Tested with Zope-2.3.0-win32-x86 with M2Crypto for Python1.

Tested with Zope-2.3.0-src on FreeBSD with M2Crypto for 
both Python1 and Python2.

Interoperated with Netscape, IE and Opera on Win32, and also Netscape
on FreeBSD.

Beware browsers with broken HTTP/1.1 - they drive ZServerSSL to 100%
CPU utilisation: An example is Netscape Communicator 4.72 on my
FreeBSD boxen.

(Or maybe it's ZServer's HTTP/1.1 that's broken. ;-)

X.509 certificate-based client authentication for HTTPS and the
encrypting monitor, both features of the ZServerSSL released a year
ago, to come RSN!

As usual, get M2Crypto here:


Feedback is appreciated. Cheers.
