Latest release of The Server Framework: 6.6.1

Version 6.6.1 of The Server Framework was released today.

This release is a minor bug fix release mainly for several bugs in the 6.6 version's OpenSSL code, see the release notes here, for full details of all changes.

All clients using version 6.6 of the OpenSSL Option Pack are advised to upgrade to this release.
I've just found and fixed a bug in version 6.6 of the OpenSSL Option Pack which relates to how we deal with outbound connection establishment errors. Changes in 6.6 mean that the OpenSSL 'connector' holds a reference to the socket whilst the SSL connection is active. The bug prevents connections which fail to be established from closing and causes a socket leak.

Note that this is ONLY for outbound (client) connections that you establish with The Server Framework. Inbound connections to servers are unaffected.

This fix will be included in release 6.6.1 which will be released later this month. If you need the fix sooner then please get in touch.
