sorry to have to use the list for this, but it would appear to be the last option available.
This is from a previous posting from Brian Hatch ...

However, the reality is different.
Yes, some people still do use release 3. I have customers who prefer proven stability over new innovation. This is meant to be understood in a general way (i.e. database upgrades, OS updates etc) and not specifically to stunnel.
I have mailed Brian several times about problems concerning release 3.26 and not a single reply has been received. Maybe the mails never arrived, but I doubt it very much. Also, no changes have been made to the software, so the supplied patch never got applied.
In the complete absence of any proof to the contrary, I can only assume that the following statement holds:-
RELEASE 3 IS DEAD !!!!!!!!!!
I welcome evidence refuting this, but won't hold my breath. In the meantime, testing will start on release 4.
Brian, if you're reading this, I'm not trying to start a flame war, or dissing you. A simple mail would have sufficed ...
