We are pleased to announce the availability of GnuTLS version 1.2.11,
the (most likely) last release on the successful 1.2 branch.  Expect
the 1.4.0 release later today or tomorrow, which will be the new
stable branch.

The goal of this release was to produce a GnuTLS 1.2 release that
builds with the most recent libtasn1 releases.  There aren't many
other changes, but see below for the details.

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 1.2.10:
- The function gnutls_x509_crt_to_xml is not supported any more, and
  return an internal error.  The reason is that the function called
  internal libtasn1 functions which are no longer exported from
- Updated libtasn1 requirement to 0.3.4 and refreshed internal mintiasn1.
- Updated gnulib compatibility files.
- Fixed _gnutls_x509_get_raw_crt_expiration_time and
  _gnutls_x509_get_raw_crt_activation_time to return (time_t)-1 on errors.
- 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
