A few build problems has been fixed, but nothing critical has been
reported, so we are on track to release 2.8.0 within a week or so.

Please test this release as if it were the new stable release.

There have been many e-mails (both on-list and off-list) about different
problems lately, and I have probably forgotten to reply to some of them.
Some of the patches introduced may also lead to new problems, of course.
So, please try and build 2.7.11 again, even if you tried earlier RCs.
If you can reproduce a problem with 2.7.11 that you have reported
earlier, please send me a ping about it.  I'm not actively working on
fixing anything right now.

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 AB, a
Stockholm based privately held company, is currently funding GnuTLS
maintenance.  We are always looking for interesting development
projects.  See for more details.
