stunnel 4.15 released

Michal Trojnara-2
Version 4.15, 2006.03.11, urgency: LOW:

* Release notes
  - There are a lot of new features in this version.  I recommend
    to test it well before upgrading your mission-critical systems.

* Bugfixes
  - Fix for pthreads on Solaris 10 (thx to Hans Werner Strube
    <[hidden email]>).
  - Attempt to autodetect socklen_t type in configure script.
  - Default threading model changed to pthread for better portability.
  - DH parameters are not included in the certificate by default.

* New features sponsored by Software House
  - Most SSL-related options (including client, cert, key) are now
    available on service level, so it is possible to have an SSL
    client and an SSL server in a single stunnel process.
  - Windows CE (version 3.0 and higher) support.

* New features
  - Client mode CONNECT protocol support (RFC 2817 section 5.2).
  - Retrying exec+connect services added.

* File locations are more compliant to Filesystem Hierarchy Standard 2.3
