Note that the GnuTLS 1.7.x branch is NOT what you want for your stable
system.  It is intended for developers and experienced users.

There are two remaining work items before the next stable release, and I
expect them to be solved during this or the next week (yeah, I know I
have been saying this for a while, but now I'm back from vacation).

* Merge sign callback API from the gnutls-pkcs11 branch.

  - We decided not to re-work the API, the one in the gnutls-pkcs11
    branch should be 'good enough', and it can always be re-worked later

* Check copyright papers for everyone who contributed during the 1.7.x
  phase (I opportunistically installed some fixes after confirming with
  authors that they were sending copyright assignments, although I have
  not verified that the assignment were actually received).

  - I've confirmed that two contributor now has signed paper, I think
    there is one still left that I need to confirm.

Below is the regular release announcement...

* Version 1.7.16 (released 2007-08-07)

** Fix sanity checks and return values in certificate selection.
In some cases, GnuTLS omitted to report suitable error codes when no
suitable certificate was found.

** Fix gnutls-cli starttls EOF on Mac OS X.
Thanks to Hal Eden <n.mavrogiannopoulos at gmail.com>.

** Documentation fixes.
In particular, the section headings were modified for casing.  By
Ludovic Courtes <ludovic.courtes at laas.fr>.

** Update gnulib files.

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