TLS version 0.3.1 fixes several related bugs in the secure webserver, where the server would not acknowledge situations in which the client cancelled the SSL/TLS session.

The most common occurrence of this situation is when the client browser displays a warning that the secure site is not fully trusted, and the user opts to cancel. Previously, the listening thread would remain alive on the server, but would not be useful, and in some situations could cause an apparently deaf server. In this release, an aborted connection is properly cancelled.

This may be the final release before TLS 1.0.
