OpenSSL v1 released after 11 years of development

After a long, hard struggle of 11 years, which started with these two entries:

23-Dec-1998: Released OpenSSL 0.9.1c
23-Dec-1998: Official start of the OpenSSL project

we are now at the point of “a major release” with v1.0.0 being made available. Fighting tooth and nail not to be a 1.0.0, we’ve seen iterations such as 0.9.8d to 0.9.8n (taking a page out of Google’s book of running pre-release?), though, to be fair, they started at 0.9.1c.

Go on, then — go and get it!
