0.2.8.x will be in a stable repo shortly.  However as far as I know, we
do not separately build OpenSSL packages (and the 1.1.0 series is still
in pre-release state), so you will either need to be patient, or wait
the 15 years it takes for Debian to update anything[0].

Well, crypto being more efficient would reduce load on the box and
lessen the likelyhood of it catching fire. :P

Realistically I'd wait till there at least is a formal OpenSSL 1.1.0
release before using it for more than testing.  But I figured it would
be good to note that the RasPi3 will benefit.
