Hi James,

yes it is planned to keep support of polarssl and add support for mbedtls.

It shall be soon available for bzrtp.

Bellesip and mediastreamer will follow, probably beginning of next year.

Note that until some patches are integrated to mbdetls, some functionality (DTLS-SRTP) would not be available unless using a custom version of mbedtls just as it is the case with polarssl now.

I ask because I am going to attempt to transition Debian (and Ubuntu by
extension) from polarssl to mbedTLS fairly soon (as soon as mbedTLS
gets accepted into the archive) and all the reverse-dependencies will
need porting. I have already done some work at porting belle-sip and
bzrtp in these branches since these packages are in Debian. You can
find my work here:

Note that I've only tested my code on Linux, and those patches will
probably be shipped with Debian regardless of what you do (until you do
the transition yourself). This guide is useful if you plan on doing any
porting work:

After the transition is complete I'm also planning to remove polarssl
from the archive. This will happen sometime before the next Debian
release and probably for the 16.10 release of Ubuntu (although maybe
for 16.04 LTS if I'm really fast). Polarssl 1.3 has already been
removed from at least Arch and Fedora.
