Changes from 5.0.20 to 5.0.20a:

Additional information about SSL support:

all Unix (including Linux) and Windows platforms except AIX, HP-UX,
OpenServer 6, and the RPMs specific for RHAS3/RHAS4/SLES9 on Itanium
CPUs ("ia64"); it is also not contained in those for Novell Netware.
We are trying to add these platforms in future versions.
* Please note that the original 5.0.20 announcement included inexact

when starting the server and the client or by setting these options
in the config file.
