I've released gnutls 0.6.0. The major changes in this release

- Added "gnutls/compat4.h" header. This is included in gnutls.h
  to emulate the old 0.4.x API.
- Example programs are now stored in doc/examples/
- Several improvements and updates in the documentation.
- Added the certificate authenticated SRP cipher suites.
- gnutls_x509_extract_certificate_dn_string() was updated to return
  an RFC2253 conforming string.
- Added the SRP related functions:
- Added the function gnutls_srp_set_server_credentials_function()
  to allow retrieving SRP parameters from an external backend - other
  than password files.
- Added the function gnutls_openpgp_set_recv_key_function()
  which can be used to set a callback, to get OpenPGP keys.
- Exported the functions:
  which should be used by callback functions.
- Changed the semantics of gnutls_pem_base64_encode_alloc()
  and gnutls_pem_base64_decode_alloc(). In the default case
  were the gnutls library is used with malloc/realloc/free,
  these are binary compatible.

This release should be both binary, and source compatible with
previous 0.5.x releases, if no special allocation functions are
