- Add support for little-endian powerpc64 update to 3.17

- required for Firefox 33 New functionality :

- When using ECDHE, the TLS server code may be configured to generate a fresh ephemeral ECDH key for each handshake, by setting the SSL_REUSE_SERVER_ECDHE_KEY socket option to PR_FALSE. The SSL_REUSE_SERVER_ECDHE_KEY option defaults to PR_TRUE, which means the server's ephemeral ECDH key is reused for multiple handshakes. This option does not affect the TLS client code, which always generates a fresh ephemeral ECDH key for each handshake. New Macros


- The manual pages for the certutil and pp tools have been updated to document the new parameters that had been added in NSS 3.16.2.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
