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

Noteworthy changes since version 1.3.4:

** Error messages are now translated using GNU Gettext.

** The function gnutls_x509_crt_to_xml now return an internal error.
This means that the code to convert X.509 certificates to XML format
does not work any more.  The reason is that the function called
libtasn1 internal functions.  It seems unclean for libtasn1 to export
the APIs needed here.  Instead it would be better to implement XML
support inside libtasn1 properly.  If you need this functionality
strongly, please consider looking into implementing this suggested
approach instead.  As a workaround, you may also modify lib/x509/xml.c
(change '#if 1' to '#if 0') and build using --with-included-libtasn1.

** Libraries are now built with libtool's -no-undefined.
This helps producing libraries for Windows using mingw32.

** Doc fixes to explain that gnutls_record_send can block.

** Libtasn1 0.3.1 or later is now required.
The include copy has been updated too.

** gnutls-cli can now recognize services and port numbers with the -p option.

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
projects.  See http://josefsson.org/ for more details.
