Thanks to jgw (Jeff W) _AT_ for working on the same patch

In before the freeze! Changelog follows.

    Security bugfixes
        Added PRNG state update in fork threading (CVE-2014-0016).
    New global configuration file defaults
        Default "fips" option value is now "no", as FIPS mode is only helpful 
for compliance, and never for actual security.
        Default "pid" is now "", i.e. not to create a pid file at startup.
    New service-level configuration file defaults
        Default "ciphers" updated to "HIGH:MEDIUM:+3DES:+DH:!aNULL:!SSLv2" due 
to AlFBPPS attack and bad performance of DH ciphersuites.
        Default "libwrap" setting is now "no" to improve performance.
    New features
        OpenSSL DLLs updated to version 1.0.1f.
        zlib DLL updated to version 1.2.8.
        autoconf scripts upgraded to version 2.69.
        TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 are now allowed in the FIPS mode.
        New service-level option "redirect" to redirect SSL client connections 
on authentication failures instead of rejecting them.
        New global "engineDefault" configuration file option to control which 
OpenSSL tasks are delegated to the current engine. Available tasks: ALL, RSA, 
        New service-level configuration file option "engineId" to select the 
engine by identifier, e.g. "engineId = capi".
        New global configuration file option "log" to control whether to append 
(the default), or to overwrite log file while (re)opening.
        Different taskbar icon colors to indicate the service state.
        New global configuration file options "iconIdle", "iconActive", and 
"iconError" to select status icon on GUI taskbar.
        Removed the limit of 63 stunnel.conf sections on Win32 platform.
        Installation of a sample certificate was moved to a separate "cert" 
target in order to allow unattended (e.g. scripted) installations.
        Reduced length of the logged thread identifier. It is still based on 
the OS thread ID, and thus not unique over long periods of time.
        Improved readability of error messages printed when stunnel refuses to 
start due to a critical error.
        LD_PRELOAD Solaris compatibility bug fixed (thx to Norm Jacobs).
        CRYPTO_NUM_LOCKS replaced with CRYPTO_num_locks() to improve binary 
compatibility with diverse builds of OpenSSL (thx to Norm Jacobs).
        Corrected round-robin failover behavior under heavy load.
        Numerous fixes in the engine support code.
        On Win32 platform .rnd file moved from c:\ to the stunnel folder.
