We have decided to drop support for SSLv3, TLS1 and TLS1.1 in 
FreedomBox. This will happen in version 21.9 which will reach all users 
in about 2 weeks time. This change should not effect you unless you are 
using a very old web client to access FreedomBox web server.

The following versions of client software will be needed to connect to 
FreedomBox web server:

- Firefox: 27
- Android: 4.4.2
- Chrome: 31
- Edge: 12
- IE: 11 (Win7),
- Java: 8u31
- OpenSSL: 1.0.1
- Opera: 20
- Safari: 9

Thanks to Joseph Nuthalapati for driving and implementing the change.
