We are pleased to announce the availability of GnuTLS version 1.2.5!

GnuTLS is a modern C library that implement the standard network
security protocol Transport Layer Security (TLS), for use by network

Strategically, I'll be away hiking in Romania for the next week, so if
there is anything wrong with this release, it may be some time before
it can be corrected.

Noteworthy changes since version 1.2.4:
- More builddir != srcdir fixes, reported by Mike Castle
  <dalgoda at ix.netcom.com>.
- Fixed off-by-one bug in the size parameter of gnutls_x509_crt_get*_dn,
  reported by Adam Langley <alangley at gmail.com>.
- Corrected some stuff in minilzo detection. Pointed out by
  Sergey Lipnevich.
- MiniLZO updated to version 2.00.
- gnutls_x509_crt_list_import now accept a DER formatted CRL.
- API and ABI modifications:
  No changes since last version.

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
