Hi,

when trying to get gemini://discovery.geminiprotocol.com/ with gmni it fails with 

SSL error 296
Error: SSL error

I'm not sure why this happens, the capsule seems to work fine with other clients.

I've tested as of commit 93f30522 build against BearSSL 0.6 on ArchLinux.
Can anyone confirm this issue?

Regards
René

Seems like other clients (which use LibreSSL for example)
are also hit by this.

The assumption is that it's caused by ed25519 based 
ciphers which currently seem not be supported by all libs.
BearSSL should support ed25519, but i'm not sure what
this "32-bit" should mean:

EC Curve25519 (32-bit) 	Done (0.3) 	
EC Curve25519 (32->32 only) 	Done (0.3) 	
EC Curve25519 (with __uint128) 	Planned

This error was just discussed and isolated in the Gemini mailing list:

It's most likely caused by a lack of support for ED25519.
