Please test Crypt::SSLeay
Sinan Ünür is preparing a new release of Crypt::SSLeay, and he's been applying all of the patches in its RT queue. He's getting pretty close to a release version, so if you depend on this module, please have a go at one of the developer versions.
I've only been indirectly involved with Crypt::SSLeay development by making sure people can work on it and sometimes convincing people to help out, so I'm really happy that Sinan is helping out. This is an important module for Perl since a lot of that fancy stuff we do with LWP (and things built on LWP, such as WWW::Mechanize). It's a tricky thing to get right because it has to track openssl and figure out where to find that on your system. Even though we have CPAN Testers, sometimes checking yourself is useful.
