Unfortunately the mail has been truncated thus I send the rest of the announcement.

It describes how to create one using the trusted certificates provide by
the microsoft IE.
It is also possible to obtain up to date cert bundles from this site:
In this port, the last version available from above site has been include.

I have tested this port by trying to access all sites that are listed in:
and I have experienced no issues. I have also accessed some german and
spanish sites to check if the special native characters are correctly
displayed and I have found no issues. I have also accessed
to check if the ftp support works well and if the cvs repository can be
accessed via cvsweb interface and everthing works flawlessly. Of course,
the mail archives can also be accessed without issues.

Please note that I am not a lynx user. I have ported it as a real world
test for the djgpp's ports of OpenSSL and WATT-32.

Only to make this point clear, if you want to use lynx as a stand alone
program without having to care about environment variables, copy lynx.exe,
lynx.cfg and lynx.lss into the same directory and it will work. When
copying the .PEM file it must be renamed to "cert.pem". This is mandatory
or it will not be found.

As usual, all djgpp specific files (diffs, README files, etc.) are stored
in the /djgpp directory. The sources have been configured to be build in
the "0build" directory. If for some reason it does not work for you,
delete it contents and configure from scratch again.

Please read the docs very __CAREFULLY__ to become familiar with the product.

Here is an extract of the CHANGES file showing the user visible changes from
the last port (Lynx 2.9.0dev.5) to this one:
