The GnuTLS 2.99.x branch is NOT what you want for your stable system.
It is intended for developers and experienced users.

The changes since the development release are:
* Version 2.99.1 (released 2011-04-23)

** libgnutls: Added support for AES-NI if detected. Uses
Andy Polyakov's AES-NI code.

* libgnutls: Restored HMAC-MD5 for compatibility. Although considered
weak, several sites require it for connection. It is enabled for
"NORMAL" and "PERFORMANCE" priority strings.

* libgnutls: depend on libdl.

** libgnutls-extra: Dropped support of LZO compression via liblzo.

** libgnutls: gnutls_transport_set_global_errno() was removed. This
function required GnuTLS to access system specific data, for no reason.
Use gnutls_transport_set_errno(), or your system's errno fascility

** libgnutls: Added gnutls_certificate_set_retrieve_function2()
to set a callback to retrieve a certificate. The certificate is
received in a format that requires no processing from gnutls thus
it is suitable when performance is required.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_transport_set_global_errno: REMOVED
gnutls_certificate_set_retrieve_function2: ADDED
