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 for more details.


* Version 2.7.0 (released 2008-10-16)

** libgnutls: Added functions to handle CRL extensions.

** libgnutls: Added functions to handle X.509 extensions in Certificate

** libgnutls: Improved error string for GNUTLS_E_AGAIN.
Suggested by "Lavrentiev, Anton (NIH/NLM/NCBI) [C]" <lavr at>.

** certtool: Print and set CRL and CRQ extensions.

** libgnutls-extra: Protect internal symbols with static.
Fixes problem when linking certtool statically.  Tiny patch from Aaron
Ucko <ucko at>.

** libgnutls-openssl: fix out of bounds access.
Problem in X509_get_subject_name and X509_get_issuer_name.  Tiny patch
From Thomas Viehmann <tv at>.

** libgnutlsxx: Define server_session::get_srp_username even if no SRP.

** tests: Make tests compile when using internal libtasn1.
Patch by ludo at (Ludovic Courtès).

We now require a libgcrypt that has Camellia constants declared in
gcrypt.h, which means v1.3.0 or later.
