A bit late, but some more bug fixes you may be interested to are:

IDNA2008 support: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/merge_requests/240
While it is a feature, on certain occasions sticking to IDNA2003 can be
considered a vulnerability because of incompatibilities between the
mappings of UTF-8 DNS names to ascii format [0]. That is a quite large
bunch of patches, but in the long run  I think it is better to support
IDNA2008 rather than sticking to IDNA2003 which may cause potential
CVEs later.

A fix on AVX detection to allow gnutls run on certain virtual systems:
