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, making your application
independent of OS provided OpenSSL libraries:

pyOpenSSL is an open-source Python add-on that allows writing SSL/TLS-
aware network applications as well as certificate management tools:

New features in the eGenix pyOpenSSL Distribution
-------------------------------------------------

 * Added the openssl binary to the OpenSSL package directory. This can
   be used to access OpenSSL functionality not exposed by pyOpenSSL.

 * Changed the Windows OPENSSLDIR default to c:\openssl\ to simplify
   OpenSSL configuration.

 * Fixed OpenSSL assembler build issues on Windows x64 and Mac OS X
   PPC/x86.

As always, we provide binaries that include both pyOpenSSL and the
necessary OpenSSL libraries for all supported platforms:
Windows x86 and x64, Linux x86 and x64, Mac OS X PPC, x86 and x64.

We've also added egg-file distribution versions of our eGenix.com
pyOpenSSL Distribution for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X to the
available download options. These make setups using e.g. zc.buildout
and other egg-file based installers a lot easier.
