The GnuTLS 2.1.x branch is NOT what you want for your stable system. It
is intended for developers and experienced users.
News in this release:
* Version 2.1.6 (released 2007-11-15)
** Corrected bug in decompression of expanded compression data.
** Added the --to-p8 option to certtool to convert private keys
to PKCS #8 keys.
** Introduced the GNUTLS_E_BASE64_UNEXPECTED_HEADER_ERROR error code.
** gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key_* can now read PKCS #8 unencrypted
** Fixed GNUTLS_E_UNKNOWN_ALGORITHM vs GNUTLS_E_UNKNOWN_HASH_ALGORITHM.
During the 2.1.x series the GNUTLS_E_UNKNOWN_HASH_ALGORITHM error code
was renamed to GNUTLS_E_UNKNOWN_ALGORITHM, unfortunately without being
documented. This caused some problems (e.g., debian #450854). To
avoid backwards compatibility problems, this release revert this
change, so that GNUTLS_E_UNKNOWN_HASH_ALGORITHM works just like it has
done in GnuTLS 2.0.x and earlier, and add a new error code
** Fixes several gtk-doc warnings.
** API and ABI modifications:
The goals for the 2.1.x branch are tracked at:

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
projects. See http://josefsson.org/ for more details.
