openssl version queries


Hi,

Correct me that for openssl 0.9.8 version, the release order is based on alphabetical order after 0.9.8? That is 0.9.8m release is earlier than 0.9.8zh?

If so, does it mean that openssl 0.9.8zh is more secure than 0.9.8m?

Short answer is: yes higher alphabetical versions are more secure and no, they didn't stop at 0.9.8. For the long answer see https://www.openssl.org/policies/releasestrat.html
