Installing OpenSSL 1.1.0 on Ubuntu - Update to the newest OpenSSL version in Ubuntu

Quick steps to install OpenSSL 1.1.0 on Ubuntu 16.04. Ubuntu 16.04 did not have OpenSSL 1.1.0 installed by default so the question one may have is how to update it.

Code:
wget https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.1.0.tar.gz
./configure
make
sudo make install
To verify it is working:
Code:
$ openssl version
OpenSSL 1.1.0  25 Aug 2016

Thanks Patrick,

I am trying to get this to work and not having much luck. It looks like the make install step finishes but my OpenSSL version doesn't update.

On Ubuntu 16.04 with all of the apt-get update / installs I did the following:

1) From home (~)

2) Extracted openssl-1.1.0.tar.gz to ~/Downloads/openssl-1-1.0
3) cd ~/Downloads/openssl-1.1.0
3) sudo ./config
4) sudo make
5) sudo make install
6) openssl version

Output is:
OpenSSL 1.0.2g 1 Mar 2016.​

Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks, @cliffr I've used your instructions and works fine.
Question what's the meaning of the options/ arguments for `is` and `now` for the command ./configure?
