The GnuTLS 2.3.x branch is NOT what you want for your stable system.  It
is intended for developers and experienced users.

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

More ideas are welcome, just create a new ticket.

Here are the compressed sources:

No Windows binaries because fchmod isn't available on Windows, and I
discovered this too late.  Will be fixed for the next release.

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.
