We are pleased to announce the availability of GnuTLS version 1.2.6!

GnuTLS is a modern C library that implement the standard network
security protocol Transport Layer Security (TLS), for use by network

The LZO related changes in version 1.2.5 did not work for several
people, hence this brown paper-bag release to address that.  This
release has been tested on systems with lzo2 and lzo1, with only lzo2,
with only lzo1, and finally on systems that lack both lzo2 and lzo1
(thus using the embedded minilzo). However, there may still be
problems in this area.

I'd also like to mention (for those who may have missed it) that
Libtasn1, the standalone ASN.1 library used by GnuTLS and other
projects, is a separate product with it's own release cycle and full
support.  Today I released 0.2.14 of it, see:

Noteworthy changes since version 1.2.5:
- MiniLZO updated to version 2.01 and moved to separate directory.
- Collision between system LZO header files and MiniLZO header file
  fixed, reported by Matthias Urlichs <smurf at smurf.noris.de>.
- Will now test for liblzo functionality in liblzo2 too, reported by
  Thomas Klausner <tk at giga.or.at>.
- Minilibtasn1 is now 0.2.14 (no code changes).
- Some code changes to avoid GTK-DOC warnings.
- API and ABI modifications:
  No changes since last version.

Improving GnuTLS is costly, but you can help!  We are looking for
organizations that find GnuTLS useful and wish to contribute back.
You can contribute by reporting bugs, improve the software, or donate
money or equipment.

Commercial support contracts for GnuTLS are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding GnuTLS
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
