I'm looking for Openssl's Chacha20/Poly1305 cipher support, supported client-side in Chrome/Chromium-dev, and server-side in Nginx.

Last I was able to find on list

	[openssl-users] ChaCha20/Poly1305 in OpenSSL?
	Fri Mar 27 05:05:59 UTC 2015

		"... It appears we are also waiting on the cipher suite values. ..."

but nothing more, afaict.

Currently in 1.0.2f

	openssl version
		OpenSSL 1.0.2f  28 Jan 2016

	openssl ciphers | grep -i chacha

and there's no mention of it here,


but, in master


They're there 

	ChaCha20-Poly1305 cipher suites from draft-ietf-tls-chacha20-poly1305-04, extending TLS v1.2

According to


Chacha support is available now in 

	LibreSSL, wolfSSL, BoringSSL, Botan, GnuTLS

& for Openssl, "ChaCha support coming soon!"

What's current plan status for these ciphers?

Not until 1.1.0 release? Or earlier?
