 I've just released gnutls 3.3.6. This release adds new features, and fixes bugs on the next-stable branch.

* Version 3.3.6 (released 2014-07-23)

** libgnutls: Use inet_ntop to print IP addresses when available

** libgnutls: gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname and friends will also check
IP addresses, and match documented behavior. Reported by David Woodhouse.

** libgnutls: DSA key generation in FIPS140-2 mode doesn't allow 1024
bit parameters.

** libgnutls: fixed issue in gnutls_pkcs11_reinit() which prevented tokens
being usable after a reinitialization.

** libgnutls: fixed PKCS #11 private key operations after a fork.

** libgnutls: fixed PKCS #11 ECDSA key generation.

** libgnutls: The GNUTLS_CPUID_OVERRIDE environment variable can be used to 
explicitly enable/disable the use of certain CPU capabilities. Note that CPU
detection cannot be overriden, i.e., VIA options cannot be enabled on an Intel
CPU. The currently available options are:
  0x1: Disable all run-time detected optimizations
  0x2: Enable AES-NI
  0x4: Enable SSSE3
  0x8: Enable PCLMUL
  0x100000: Enable VIA padlock
  0x200000: Enable VIA PHE
  0x400000: Enable VIA PHE SHA512

** libdane: added dane_query_to_raw_tlsa(); patch by Simon Arlott.

** p11tool: use GNUTLS_SO_PIN to read the security officer's PIN if set.

** p11tool: ask for label when one isn't provided.

** p11tool: added --batch parameter to disable any interactivity.

** p11tool: will not implicitly enable so-login for certain types of
objects. That avoids issues with tokens that require different login

** certtool/p11tool: Added the --curve parameter which allows to explicitly
specify the curve to use.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_certificate_set_x509_trust_dir: Added
gnutls_x509_trust_list_add_trust_dir: Added
