    To all. Please note that testing your website on TLS 1.3 with OpenSSL 1.1.1 pre release 3 beta is useless due to the fact that OpenSSL 1.1.1...... is running TLS 1.3 draft 26.

    Browser support is up to TLS 1.3 draft 23-24, speaking off Chrome 65 production.
    If there is a need to test anyway, use OpenSSL_1_1_1-pre2.

    Yeah the draft mis-alignment as TLS v1.3 drafts are made is tricky. I believe TLS v1.3 draft 28 is now the latest too.

    Haha draft 28 already. it is really a mess and a go at the TLS standards team.
    Check the TLS 1.3. mailing lists. It is a joke.

    Please note that draft 23 originally was the proposed standard. Since the last call for draft 23 as standard (it only saved a few days or it had become the standard). A lot changed in the documents to clarify things they could have dealt with for 100 years. Apparently a few nerds have now woken up.

    Well reality is with any tech/code, nothing is ever statically deemed stable as it's always under development and ever evolving :D

    Once again it shows the limitation of too clever techies.
    Side A: To smart. Side B: Communication and project management zero.
