Hi all, and especially users of CURRENT snapshots,

I've just pushed a change in the main branch (CURRENT) which changes the 
name of a readers.conf parameter:
   require_ssl is now require_encryption

As that parameter applies to any kind of encryption layers, including 
TLS and SASL security layers (negotiated with AUTHINFO SASL), that new 
name is better.
Note that innupgrade only takes care of the change in the file named 
"readers.conf".  You'll have to manually rename that parameter in 
configuration files for with an alternate name.

If you have in mind other parameters that could see their names improved 
in the upcoming release, do not hesitate to tell.
