Merry ChristmasA merry christmas to everyone from the POCO team at Applied Informatics!

Since all of you have been so nice this year, we have a special present for you: the NetSSL library providing SSL/TLS support for Net (based on OpenSSL), which up to now was only available as part of a commercial service level agreement, is now free and under the Boost license.

You can get it from the Subversion trunk, or download it as part of release 1.2.7-ssl.

You’ll need a recent release of OpenSSL to compile NetSSL. For Windows users, we recommend the installer from Shining Light Productions. Linux and Mac OS X users can use the preinstalled OpenSSL version. Also, please see the build instructions in NetSSL_OpenSSL/doc/howtobuild.txt.

The user guide can be found here.

SSL/TLS support was one of the most requested features in POCO, so we hope you’ll like it!
