  release branch.
 
  Changes between 1.1.0h and 1.1.1 [xx XXX xxxx]
+  *) Make ec_group_do_inverse_ord() more robust and available to other
+     EC cryptosystems, so that irrespective of BN_FLG_CONSTTIME, SCA
+     mitigations are applied to the fallback BN_mod_inverse().
+     When using this function rather than BN_mod_inverse() directly, new
+     EC cryptosystem implementations are then safer-by-default.
+     [Billy Bob Brumley]
+
   *) Add coordinate blinding for EC_POINT and implement projective
      coordinate blinding for generic prime curves as a countermeasure to
      chosen point SCA attacks.
