This is really too bad, our customer trusts the W3, but dislikes 3rd
party developers in this regard.

The SSL Release I just downloaded yesterday from IAIK is based on
Jigsaw 2.0.1 and not 2.1.0. Actually the main problem is the public
domain nature of the software an the fact that they distribute the
SSL part as a complete package with Jigsaw and not just as a module
you can install with the original Jigsaw.

This sort of disqualifies the SSL thing for us, since we need to port
Jigsaw to our customers platform.

What about future releases of the W3 Jigsaw? Is SSL support a midterm

Again, thanx for your help
