fixed. I expect the final 0.16 bits will be out by the end of June 2006.

- All known regressions fixed
- Added --openssl option to build command which can be used to specify
  where OpenSSL is installed, by Matt Rodriguez

  by Arno Bakker
- Added sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512, by Larry Bugbee
- Added serialNumber, SN, surname, GN and givenName fields to X509_Name,
  by Martin Paljak
- And various other improvements and bugfixes, see CHANGES file
