This the second release candidate for 2.4.0.  Anything that doesn't live
up to the expectations on a stable release should be reported before
this turns into the real 2.4.0.  We hope to release 2.4.0 within a week
or two.

The goals for the 2.3.x branch are tracked at:

Hopefully I can move it to another host soon...  Is anyone interested in
helping to admin it?  Can anyone sponsor a VPS to run this on?  Help!

More ideas are welcome, just create a new ticket.

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 for more details.

News in this release:

* Version 2.3.13 (released 2008-06-07)

** libgnutls [OpenPGP]: Make OpenPGP handshakes work again.

** doc/: Add psktool to info index.  Some minor cleanups.

** tests/: Added non-forking TLS handshake test, see tests/mini.c.

** tests/: Added libgcrypt.supp which can be used with valgrind.
The file suppresses the known libgcrypt memory leaks, so they aren't
printed when you run valgrind on the gnutls self-tests.  Use it as
follows: valgrind --suppressions=libgcrypt.supp ./x509self or add
'--suppressions=/home/you/src/gnutls/tests/libgcrypt.supp' to your
~/.valgrindrc file.

** tests/: Reduce amount of debugging output by default.
Use --verbose for each test to get the full output.

** tests/: Fix memory leaks in several self-tests.
None of the self tests should be leaking memory when running valgrind
or similar tools.  (Known exceptions are dhepskself, pskself, and
set_pkcs12_cred, which appear likely to be due to memory leaks in the

** API and ABI modifications:
No changes since last version.
