[gnutls-dev] GnuTLS 1.7.15

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 week.

* Fix sign callback API to be per-credential rather than per-session.

* 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).

Below is the regular release announcement...

* Version 1.7.15 (released 2007-07-02)

** Fix self-tests key-id under mingw32.

** Test that the Guile header files are recent enough to work.
Before we just tested that the command line tool 'guile' was recent
enough, which may not be sufficient if you still have an old
libguile.h header installed.

** Guile bindings are now installed under $prefix by default.
Use --without-guile-site-dir to install it under $pkgdatadir/site/
where $pkgdatadir is as returned by "guile-config info pkgdatadir".
Use --with-guile-site-dir=/your/own/path to specify the path manually.
The default, --with-guile-site-dir, will install the Guile bindings
under $datadir/guile/site.  There is a new section 'Guile
Preparations' in the manual that discuss these issues.

** Fix run-time library path ordering in linking the Guile bindings.

** Improved manual on downloading, installing, getting help, bug reports etc.
Suggested by Ludovic Courtès <ludovic.courtes at laas.fr>.

** Add Malay message translations.

** 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.
