I am happy to announce GnuTLS 1.4.5, a bugfix release on the stable
1.4 branch.  This version is what we recommend for those who need a
stable version of GnuTLS.

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

Noteworthy changes since 1.4.4:

** When a GnuTLS server receive a SSLv2 Client Hello for an unknown TLS
** version, try to negotiate the highest version support by the GnuTLS server,
** instead of the lowest.
Reported by <Pasi.Eronen at nokia.com>.

** Fix typo in doc/examples/ex-serv-pgp.c.
Reported by Adam Langley" <agl at imperialviolet.org>.

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.
