This makes gnutls-serv and gnutls-cli-debug work on Windows, and fixes
some other minor things.  We are on track to release this as 2.8.0
within a week or so.  I'll be away on vacation in Budapest until Monday,
so don't expect any quick replies.  Use the time to test the RC!  :)

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

Here are the compressed sources: (6.0MB)

Here is the OpenPGP signature:

The Windows binary installer and PGP signature: (15MB)

A ZIP archive containing the Windows binaries: (5.3MB)

A Debian mingw32 package is also available: (4.8MB)

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.
