It's been a while since last hearing anything out of the LibreSSL camp, but a new version is now available.

LibreSSL 2.4.0 is the new release and also marks their first release out of the OpenBSD 6.0 branch. The 2.4 release notes mention, "This release is the first snapshot based on the development OpenBSD 6.0 branch. As such, it is likely to change more compared to the 2.3.x and 2.2.x branches."

Among the changes in LibreSSL 2.4.0 are significant improvements to its CMake build system, IETF ChaCha20-Poly1305 cipher suites support, password prompts now properly handle ^C, reworked error handling in libtls to display configuration errors, and various other changes and fixes.
