       Non-security issues fixed:
    
       - Fix startup problem of the stunnel daemon (bsc#1178533)
    
       - update to 5.57:
         * Security bugfixes

           - Support for modern PostgreSQL clients

         * Bugfixes
           - Fixed a transfer() loop bug.
           - Fixed memory leaks on configuration reloading errors.
           - DH/ECDH initialization restored for client sections.
           - Delay startup with systemd until network is online.

       - update to 5.56:
         - Various text files converted to Markdown format.
         - Support for realpath(3) implementations incompatible with
           POSIX.1-2008, such as 4.4BSD or Solaris.
         - Support for engines without PRNG seeding methods (thx to Petr
           Mikhalitsyn).
         - Retry unsuccessful port binding on configuration file reload.
         - Thread safety fixes in SSL_SESSION object handling.
         - Terminate clients on exit in the FORK threading model.

         * Use upstream stunnel.conf and tailor it for openSUSE using sed.
         * Don't show README.openSUSE when installing.
