  • Fix: Fix the signature of the implementation of the native SSL method newSSL() in the case when OPENSSL is not available. (rjung)
  • Fix: Fix the signature of the implementation of the native SSLSocket method getInfoB() to return jbyteArray instead of jobject. This is consistent with what it actually returns and how the native Java method is declared. (rjung)
