Some of my notes: #ReactOS is using #mbedtls. Investigated #BearSSL at one point but few programs seemed to use it. Checking now, appears #curl added it as a possible back end. Several programs like #Netrider work with libcurl, so they'll work if curl works. Also, build/use #lynx, D+ and a few others.
I build a lot of software from source. Once again, I'm looking at my choices of #C #ssl libraries and trying to decide which to use. I switched to #LibreSSL in 2017: https://lmemsm.dreamwidth.org/7048.html
With Linux distributions dropping LibreSSL support and incompatibilities with applications, am wondering if I should look for a new option with better cross-platform support. Interested in recommendations for #FLOSS, portable #SSL libraries. What works and what programs work with them?
I've also been brainstorming ideas for celebrating #Halloween safely this year. You can find links to other Halloween related resources at:
Hope you'll share some of your own safe ideas, #books, #programs and healthy #recipe #treats for celebrating Halloween as well.
Anyone have any luck or have pointers to tutorials to get #Termux running on #Android Subsystem for #Windows? Saw an article on how to install Android in #WSL: https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-run-android-apps-on-any-windows-11-pc/ Not many details on how to use it once it's installed. Would be nice to try to side load #F-Droid with #adb. Has anyone found any good tutorials on this sort of thing? Thanks. #AskFedi #AskFediverse

Just when I was starting to get excited about #rust ... https://drewdevault.com/2021/02/09/Rust-move-fast-and-break-things.html
It probably can be discussed, but I think it raises some fair -and worrisome- points.
From a practical point of view, it may pay to learn some Rust anyway. As does with other languages that one can personally dislike.
But for pet projects or just personal preference, the search for the "perfect" language goes on...
I used to serve my XHTML pages with Content-Type: application/xml. This worked in default-configured browsers but some browser extensions choked on finding an XMLDocument instead of an HTMLDocument, so I had to change it.
Today I've had a tool reject application/xhtml+xml (it sends Accept: text/html so it gets HTTP 406) for the first time.
