0007751: Add SSL plugin
Add Andreas Raab's SqueakSSLPlugin to trunk.
The plugin is at [^] This should be added to the update map for VMMaker.

Platform support code is at [^] This should be added to the platform support on Subversion.

Note - check against oscog branch for any recent updates (or just adopt oscog directly, depending on which is the most up to date version).

It's not entirely necessary to add SqueakSSL (the image-side code) to trunk.

It does seem that plugins are a much bigger deal and require special attention, so the SSL _plugin_ should probably ship by default (as it does already with Windows).

I added the plugin from package SqueakSSL-plugin to the configuration update-dtl.12.mcm for VMMaker, and to the default for "VMMakerTool forUnix". Next step - add the platforms support code to SVN trunk.

I've seen reports on the pharo-dev mailing list that the non-openssl (i.e., the Mac and Windows specific parts of the plugin) have issues. I wasn't aware of any issues, but they've gone with only supporting openssl across all platforms.

SqueakSSL-platforms.tar.gz is the most recent platforms source from Andreas' repository at [^] I have rearranged the directories to match the structure of the platforms sources, but the source is otherwise unmodified. This appears to be more recent and complete that the platforms sources in oscog, so I think we should consider this to be the official current version.

Notes: I compiled but did not test on unix. I think we can assume that Windows is properly supported. Mac OS is also included in the platforms code, and I do not know the state of this.

I see compiler warnings when compiled for -m64, so some updates should be expected to address this. The compile fails for --image64, probably due to the same type declaration issues.

Cog r.2714 VMs now ship with SSL (on the Linux and Mac platforms):

The plugin should be present in future builds and is expected to work when compiled in 32-bit mode
01-29-15 00:25   
SqueakSSL has some type declaration issues that prevent it from being compiled for the 64-bit object memory (--image64). Patches are in squeakssl-platforms-patch-dtl.tgz (uploaded here)

I can see that there are some other pointer-to-int issues in the Windows and Mac OS support code, but for those platforms I fixed only the obvious problem of the mis-declared function:

  int sqGetIntPropertySSL(sqInt handle, int propID)

which should instead be this to match the header declaration in Cross:

  sqInt sqGetIntPropertySSL(sqInt handle, sqInt propID)

For unix this patch should fix the --image64 issue and also address some problems when compiling in 64 bit mode. I'm not in a position to compile for Windows and Mac, so I don't want to attempt any further changes there.

The platforms/unix patches are applied in SVN 3238. Mac and win32 will require follow up. The plugin compiles on all combinations of 32/64 bit host and image for Unix, but still needs testing on 64 bit host VM to verify that it works.
01-30-15 01:01   
Patches applied for Unix to address 32/64 bit issues, testing required to ensure that it works on 64-bit host. Patches for other platforms are not done.
