This is from RFC3546, right?

This won't be such an issue with QCA, I hope - the ability to update the 
providers without causing any compatibility problems is a major goal.

Only that I'd like to see it formally released. That changelog link appears to 
be for HEAD, but doesn't look to have been done as a release yet.

0.9.8a is the last version I've tried, and it supports some very useful things 
for SSL/TLS, but also for the lower level primitives (e.g. SHA2 hashes - very 
fast too - even quicker than the Intel Performance Primitives library on my 
rough benchmarks).
