Hello.  This release include a few fixes.  GnuTLS still require
snprintf in libc, otherwise I'm not aware of any problems.

Oh.  I just realized I forgot to add one item to the NEWS entry below.
With this version, the GnuTLS GTK-DOC API manual is included in
Devhelp format.  It look the same as the GTK-DOC HTML output:


but with the Devhelp program you can search for functions quickly.  I
think there are some Emacs tools that make use of Devhelp files, too.

I believe in good documentation, but I have little time to read all
the generated formats carefully before each release.  I encourage
people to report problems with the manuals in the 1.1.x series, so
that 1.2.0 will ship with manuals in a good shape.  See the list of
formats furthest down on the following page:
