Update Information:

Update to a current beta version.    The update also contains changes for
CVE-2009-3555 however it does not prevent the unsafe renegotiation for servers
which use SSL_OP_ALL. The majority of applications does this. Preventing the
unsafe renegotiation by default might break some protocols which depend on
working renegotiation.    The update also disables enforcement of the new safe
renegotiation extension on the client as the extension is not yet supported by
the deployed servers.    It still might break applications which need legacy
renegotiation to work but they should use SSL_OP_ALL option to allow this.

* Wed Nov 18 2009 Tomas Mraz <tmraz at redhat.com> 1.0.0-0.13.beta4
- disable enforcement of the renegotiation extension on the client (#537962)
- add fixes from the current upstream snapshot
* Fri Nov 13 2009 Tomas Mraz <tmraz at redhat.com> 1.0.0-0.12.beta4
- keep the beta status in version number at 3 so we do not have to rebuild
  openssh and possibly other dependencies with too strict version check
* Thu Nov 12 2009 Tomas Mraz <tmraz at redhat.com> 1.0.0-0.11.beta4
- update to new upstream version, no soname bump needed 
- fix CVE-2009-3555 - note that the fix is bypassed if SSL_OP_ALL is used
  so the compatibility with unfixed clients is not broken. The
  protocol extension is also not final.

  [ 1 ] Bug #537962 - alpine: ssl/tls negotiation has failed
