I guess you mean "random length MAC padding". This change has
nothing to do with that. They might add that at some point, and
I doubt it's going to compile time option changing the ABI.
This change is about:
*) Add initial support for TLS extensions, specifically for the server_name
extension so far. The SSL_SESSION, SSL_CTX, and SSL data structures now
have new members for a host name. The SSL data structure has an
additional member SSL_CTX *initial_ctx so that new sessions can be
stored in that context to allow for session resumption, even after the
SSL has been switched to a new SSL_CTX in reaction to a client's
New functions (subject to change):
New CTRL codes and macros (subject to change):
SSL_CTRL_SET_TLSEXT_HOSTNAME - SSL_set_tlsext_host_name()
openssl s_client has a new '-servername ...' option.
openssl s_server has new options '-servername_host ...', '-cert2 ...',
'-key2 ...', '-servername_fatal' (subject to change). This allows
testing the HostName extension for a specific single host name ('-cert'
and '-key' remain fallbacks for handshakes without HostName
negotiation). If the unrecogninzed_name alert has to be sent, this by
default is a warning; it becomes fatal with the '-servername_fatal'
Anyway, it's been uploaded to unstable now.
