I've just released gnutls 0.5.9. The changes since 0.5.8 are:

- Corrected some code which worked fine in gcc 3.2, but not with any
  other compiler.
- Updated 'gnutls-cli' with the '--starttls' option, to allow testing
  starttls implementations.
- Added gnutls_x509_extract_key_pk_algorithm() function which extracts
  the private key type, of a DER encoded key.
- Added gnutls_x509_extract_certificate_dn_string() which returns the
  certificate's distinguished name in a single string.
- Added gnutls_set_default_priority() and gnutls_set_default_export_priority()
  functions, to avoid calling all the *_priority() functions if the defaults
  are acceptable.
- Added int gnutls_x509_check_certificates_hostname() which check whether
  the given hostname matches the owner of the given X.509 certificate.

This release, also contains the new libtasn1 0.1.2.
