Internet: IBrowse 2.5.6 / AmiSSL v5.1 released
Oliver Roberts not only continues to develop his web browser 'IBrowse' for AmigaOS 3, MorphOS and AmigaOS 4, but from now on also maintains the encryption protocol AmiSSL, which now supports OpenSSL 3.0 and now also has its own homepage. Please read the press release:

IBrowse 2.5.6 is now available for download (OS4 users may use AmiUpdate instead), which is the sixth free update for registered owners of IBrowse 2.5. IBrowse 2.1-2.4 and 1.x owners may upgrade to IBrowse 2.5.6 via our store at discounted rates. Please note: IBrowse 2.5.6 requires AmiSSL v5, also released today, so you are advised to download it before updating IBrowse, otherwise you will be left without HTTPS access.

Whilst this releases fixes quite a few different issues, it brings the following improvements too:
  • Adapted to fully use OpenSSL 3.0, via AmiSSL v5
  • HTTP Brotli compression support
  • OpenSearch autodiscovery support
  • Gemini client, allowing loading of gemini: URLs
  • Improved Gopher support
  • JavaScript fixes and improvements
  • Google/Gmail account login fixed (became blocked in March)
Changes of AmiSSL 5.1:
  • Switched to OpenSSL 3.0 and updated backend to full compatibility with the latest OpenSSL 3.0.3 (3.5.2022) version, which brings new features, such as a built-in HTTP(S) client, along with security and bug fixes.
  • Updated root certificates to latest Mozilla-based bundle provided by https://curl.se/docs/caextract.html dated 26.4.2022.
  • Split AmiSSL release archive into smaller OS specific and SDK archives.
  • OpenSSL tool now has a proper $VER string, with the version number matching the AmiSSL release version number.
  • Fixed OpenSSL UI function m68k/ppc crosscalls, reinstating code from AmiSSL v3, that was unfortunately removed in AmiSSL v4.
  • Added new streamlined OpenAmiSSLTags/TagList() function to amisslmaster.library which simplifies the opening of AmiSSL.
  • Added simple httpget example code which shows how applications can use the new built-in HTTP(S) client.
  • Added full autodocs for all the Amiga specific interface functions.
  • Improved and structured the developer README-SDK file.
  • Added OpenSSL stub link libraries for OS3 (GCC) and OS4 (GCC & VBCC).
  • AmiSSL and OpenSSL switched to the Apache License, Version 2.0.
  • We have a new homepage at https://amissl.org which provides links to all AmiSSL resources, old and new.
