OpenSSL 1.1.0 was a very strong release. The team did an awesome job.
Hats off to them for a job that exceeded well done.

I did not observe problems at places where you can take the
temperature of developers, like Stack Overflow. The was an occasional
"project X fails to compile with OpenSSL 1.1.0" and "How do I do Y now
that Z is private" but that was expected. Other than that, you would
not even know 1.1.0 was released because things went so smoothly.
