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.

This release closes one of the milestones before the next stable
release, namely:

* Integrate Guile bindings.

Many thanks to Ludovic Courtès for this contribution!

There are three remaining work items before the next stable release:

* 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).

* Make sure the stuff in the GIT repository (i.e., all recent work) is
  available through CVS, either through back-ports to the old server or
  a git-cvsserver approach.

Below is the regular release announcement...

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.
