[openssl-users] Roadmap: the future of 1.1?

We're at a point where we're deciding between two paths re OpenSSL;

*         Continue with OpenSSL 1.0.2 (LTS until December 2019) and struggle with getting EC to work

*         Move to OpenSSL 1.1.0 (supported until August 2018) whose new API makes it much more friendly to use.

This page doesn't currently mention what the future "trunk" version of OpenSSL will be after 1.1.0. Will there be a 1.1.1, or a 1.2.0 appearing in the next couple of years? You've said no 1.0.3, so I assume at some point a 1.1.n or 1.n.n release will become the new LTS.

In short, if we go to 1.1.0, are we going to have to swap back to 1.0.2 come August 2018, or will there be a 1.1.1 (or something) in place?
