GnuTLS:
Just installed it, then thrashed it around a little bit running HexChat with SSL connection and Firefox with the HTTPS Everywhere plugin going. Everything works well, will let you know if that changes.

Security update has been done on 7.1
http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/buildbot/builders/openssl/builds/13

I don't know what kind of ramifications we can expect from upgrading openssl on 7.0.  It is currently at 0.9.8x there, so I wont touch it for now because I don't know if it will break other things

Somehow, I have a 7.0 with 1.0.0g, 18 Jan 2012.

Examining further, 1.0.0g and 1.0.0d are in extra. No idea why in extra.

But looking at vabs, no real idea how they got there. A scan of the SlackBuild did turn up a line that might patch later versions to report 0.9.8 to some software, not sure.

BTW: repo maintenance or slow scripts temporarily blocked upgrading on 7.1. If you tried prior to the "last edit" time of this post, try again. Seems to work now.
