Update tools. This is a reland 9d1f96606cd7af3b8d441fbc5e8d2e69da37c506, which should hopefuly be fine after afd1cd959e75eb8f62fcfc6b1c1124537a09b2f9. Though I've also gone ahead and gotten the latest versions of things. (android_tools and clang updated.) In particular, get the new NDK. Unfortunately, the new clang picks up an unfortunate change for clang-cl that we now must work around. http://llvm.org/viewvc/llvm-project?view=revision&revision=319116 Bug: 109 Change-Id: If19b09c585957fefaffa8c3197a50189402a555a Reviewed-on: https://boringssl-review.googlesource.com/25025 Reviewed-by: Steven Valdez <email@example.com> Commit-Queue: David Benjamin <firstname.lastname@example.org> CQ-Verified: CQ bot account: email@example.com <firstname.lastname@example.org>
BoringSSL is a fork of OpenSSL that is designed to meet Google's needs.
Although BoringSSL is an open source project, it is not intended for general use, as OpenSSL is. We don't recommend that third parties depend upon it. Doing so is likely to be frustrating because there are no guarantees of API or ABI stability.
Programs ship their own copies of BoringSSL when they use it and we update everything as needed when deciding to make API changes. This allows us to mostly avoid compromises in the name of compatibility. It works for us, but it may not work for you.
BoringSSL arose because Google used OpenSSL for many years in various ways and, over time, built up a large number of patches that were maintained while tracking upstream OpenSSL. As Google's product portfolio became more complex, more copies of OpenSSL sprung up and the effort involved in maintaining all these patches in multiple places was growing steadily.
Currently BoringSSL is the SSL library in Chrome/Chromium, Android (but it's not part of the NDK) and a number of other apps/programs.
