    Algol - 2011-01-26

    Greetings,

    Thank you very much for providing such a great application.

    My question is about updating the OpenSSL libraries that come with XCA

    XCA 0.9.0 shows OpenSSL 1.0.0a in the about dialog. If I wanted to update
    to the most recent version of OpenSSL is it just a matter of replacing the old
    dll with the new one? Or do I need to recompile the entire application with
    the new version of OpenSSL?

    Thank you for your help

    Since OpenSSL 1.0.0, they promised to keep the libs binary compatible. I never tried it, but replacing the "libeay32.dll"
    should work.

    Please note:
    The OpenSSL Version number shown in XCA is compiled in and will not change when replacing the "libeay32.dll"
    I will fix this in the next version of XCA.

    Hi,

    I tried this with the latest "libeay32.dll" but it still shows the version that was included with the build. Is this still compiled in?

    Best regards

    Matthijs

    I'm curious about this as well, it'd be nice to know what version of OpenSSL I'm working with each time I use X.C.A. to do some certificates. As a matter of fact, it'd really be nice if X.C.A. had it's own little update checker, whereupon it would check your server for any OpenSSL updates and fetch them, or at least notify the user so's that we could go and grab them and verify P.G.P. signatures and all that jazz.
