Changes

Changes to README.txt.

    12     12   Full filevent sematics should also be intact - see tests directory for
    13     13   blocking and non-blocking examples.
    14     14   
    15     15   The current release is TLS 1.6, with binaries built against OpenSSL 0.9.8g.
    16     16   For best security and function, always compile from source with the latest
    17     17   official release of OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org/).
    18     18   
    19         -TLS requires Tcl 8.2.0+, with 8.3.2+ preferred.  The stacked channel
    20         -implementation in Tcl was originally introduced in 8.2.0 (previously the
    21         -Trf patch) and rewritten for 8.3.2+ due to inherent limitations in the
    22         -earlier implementation.  TLS should compile with any stubs-capable Tcl
    23         -interpreter, but will require 8.2+ when loaded.  There are known
    24         -limitations in the 8.2.0-8.3.1 stacked channel implementation, so it is
    25         -encouraged that people use TLS with an 8.3.2+ Tcl interpreter.  These
    26         -modifications are by Jeff Hobbs.
           19  +TLS 1.7 and newer require Tcl 8.4.0+, older versions may be used if older
           20  +versions of Tcl need to be used.
    27     21   
    28     22   Non-exclusive credits for TLS are:
