Oliver Roberts continues to give Classic and Nextgen Amiga the ability to surf https sites! The world of Amiga is moving on because of flames like him.
The newest AmiSSL for Classic Amiga and AmigaOS 4.x is now out in version 4.8. This version of AmiSSL has updated the OpenSSL compatibility which is great. With the lastest AmiSSL and the time set to the day you use your browser you can browse SSL packes with NetSurf, iBrowse, Aweb or OWB.
Version 4.8 (13.03.2021):
Updated OpenSSL backend to full compatibility to latest
OpenSSL 1.1.1j (16.02.2021) version, which brings security and bug fixes
Updated root certificates to latest Mozilla-based bundle provided
Fixed corrupted OS3 libamisslauto.a (object name was too long)
Tweaked SDK examples and OpenSSL includes to be more compatible with
vanilla VBCC and SAS/C compiler installations
Restored SAS/C support to AmiSSL autoopen link library code
Added native VBCC support to AmiSSL autoopen link library code
Added lib/autoinit_amissl_main.c to SDK to allow VBCC, SAS/C and GCCAmiSSL readme
users to compile their own link library, if required
AmiSSL helps AmigaOS to be modern and to be able to browse HTTPS pages on-line. Without OpenSSL support, there would be no possibility to browse many of the Amiga HTML HTTPS pages too.
It is nice to see that the OpenSSL backend is now fully compatibility to latest OpenSSL 1.1.1j (16.02.2021) version. This gives AmigaOS internet experience a bit better push, even though the availability of full-CSS compatible browsers for the Classic Amiga platform is absent.
