    Hello Manfred,

    64-bit builds of OpenSSL are already available via conda from one of two conda channels - https://anaconda.org/zoss-appdev (for everyone); and https://condaserver.rocketsoftware.com/ (for Rocket customers on a support contract).

    To install packages via conda, you'll need to download and install Miniconda (if you don't have it already). It can be downloaded from Rocket Community portal:

    https://my.rocketsoftware.com/RocketCommunity#/downloads

    From Downloads, navigate to the z/OpenSource category, then type Miniconda in the filter on the right side. Documentation on how to install Miniconda on z/OS resides there, too.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Regards,
    Vladimir

    Hi Vladimir,
    I have tried out openssl 64-bit. So far things look ok.

    Only when running: `openssl version` the output is:

    OpenSSL 1.0.2l-dev xx XXX xxxx

    Hi Manfred,

    Even though it reports 1.0.2l-dev version, it is actually 1.0.2k stable build - this happens due to the way we built it; we're going to correct this glitch in a future release of OpenSSL.

    Regards,
    Vladimir
