I do understand the frustration ... but lets be fair too.  OpenSSL v1.1
is considered a major upgrade from v1.0 and they don't guarantee API/ABI
stability across major upgrades.

And the v1.1 API does indeed try to clean up a lot of the API mess and
confusions.  So it is a move in the right direction.  I attended an
OpenSSL v1.1 talk at devconf.cz in the end of January this year, I'll
try to dig up the slides from Tomas Mraz who had the talk.  It was quite
informative why it was needed to break several APIs in v1.1.
